My delayed Southwest flight from San Jose to Las Vegas gave me some extra time to finalize my game plan for attending SpringOne Platform 2016. I was really excited for the trip, and the delay (followed by another delay) did little to dampen my excitement. Upon landing in Vegas, I was greeted by the instantly sweat-inducing 112 degree heat/humidity, as well as the usual long weaving taxi line comprised of every demographic imaginable.

In mid-June, Redis Labs and Pivotal announced a new partnership along with the general availability of a Redis Labs Enterprise Cluster (RLEC) tile on the Pivotal Network. This new offering delivers the highly available Redis database on Pivotal Cloud Foundry, enabling enterprises to build and deploy world-class enterprise applications on a stable, high-performance database. Pivotal Cloud Foundry-based applications can now access RLEC through an easy-to-deploy-and-manage tile in the Pivotal Network.
While way too many tech partnerships end up as simply an exchange of logos on websites, our new partnership with Pivotal has fortunately been quite the opposite. Pivotal’s entire team, from senior management on down to the sales and technical teams, has been actively engaged with us as we explore the best and most efficient path to market for our joint offering. This spirit of collaboration has continued throughout this week’s SpringOne Platform conference.
As a featured partner of Pivotal, we were invited to participate in the Global Ecosystem session, hosted by VP of Global Alliances, Nick Cayou, and the Field CTO of Cloud Foundry, Josh McKenty. This interactive session around partnering was a highlight of the conference for us, reinforcing Pivotal’s commitment to their partners and ecosystem. We also heard directly from Bill Cook, Pivotal’s COO, making clear his commitment to partners.
