Cloud Foundry, the Internet of Things and Benjamin Black.
At the end of Feb., Pivotal announced that Benjamin Black was joining the Pivotal Cloud Foundry team as senior director of technology for its effort concerning the Internet of Things. Black was Chris Pinkham's partner in describing a vision for cloud infrastructure in a paper at Amazon in 2003. Look for Cloud Foundry to connect to the Internet of Things pronto.

Pivotal: Now generating revenue through open source productization
It's not part of the technology announcement but Watters said Pivotal Cloud Foundry has generated subscriptions for Pivotal amounting to $40 million a year over its first nine months as a product. Cloud Foundry is a platform as a service open source project. Pivotal Cloud Foundry is primary commercial product bulit from it, with Pivotal selling subscriptions and providing technical support. That $40 million is generated by less than 100 paying customers, said Watters, when questioned on that point. I think that relatively small number  means they tend to be large enterprise customers with substantial investments in Cloud Foundry use. This is a substantial success story, based on open source code.

It's the Office 365 model
What Pivotal is doing could also be called the Microsoft Office 365 model in the middleware space, where you can move between a local and cloud-based application and it appears much the same. As use of the cloud evolves, this easy to use, hybrid model is likely to become more common.
