Microsoft Partners with Pivotal for Managed Spring Boot Azure Service

October 10, 2019 / Kurt Mackie

Microsoft has teamed up with Pivotal Software to launch a private preview of Azure Spring Cloud, seeking to ease the development of Java-based cloud microservices. The idea is to help developers focus on building scalable microservices rather than more mundane tasks like configuring infrastructure. Azure Spring Cloud offers a complete runtime environment for Spring Boot apps, but it also promises to help Spring Boot developers with typical IT infrastructure concerns. The infrastructure behind Azure Spring Cloud includes Microsoft's Azure Kubernetes Service, a container orchestration service managed by Microsoft where the container technology is used to spin up apps without conflicts. Azure Spring Cloud also includes Pivotal's kpack resource controllers for Kubernetes. Lastly, the Azure Spring Cloud provides "a service registry, client-side load balancing and circuit-breakers," according to Pivotal's announcement.
