On this week's episode, we spoke with The New Stack founder and publisher Alex Williams and TNS correspondent and columnist Mike Melanson about the Pivotal SpringOne Platform developer conference in Austin, which they both attended last week.
Pivotal is a sponsor of The New Stack and made a number of announcements at the show.
The company unveiled the beta of its managed version of the Spring Cloud Gateway, which the company describes in a blog post as “a developer-friendly way to configure and route API requests to application services.” With the beta release, Spring Cloud Gateway will get ongoing maintenance and support from Pivotal, as well as the addition of Pivotal Platform’s single sign-on module, the company’s identity and access management tool for applications and APIs.
Also at the show, Pivotal and Microsoft previewed Azure Spring Cloud, a fully managed service for deploying Spring Boot applications on Microsoft Azure. Spring Boot is based on Pivotal’s popular Spring framework and is an open source Java-based framework used to create microservices, which it does by packaging the runtime together with the application.
Then later in the show, we discussed Escape, a multicloud conference held this week by Cockroach Labs, which Jackson attended.
