Pivotal Platform Runtimes

Page last updated:

This topic describes the runtime environments you can install on Ops Manager.


Ops Manager includes runtime environment options that support apps and containers running on Linux and Windows VMs at different levels of resource usage and isolation. You install your chosen runtime or runtimes using the Ops Manager Installation Dashboard.

Ops Manager includes support for the following primary runtime environments:

Pivotal Application Service (PAS)

PAS lets developers develop and manage cloud-native apps and software services running on Linux. PAS is based on the open-source Cloud Foundry Application Runtime project. To install and configure PAS, see Configuring PAS.

As an alternative to PAS, you can install Small Footprint PAS to deploy your app using fewer resources.

After you install the PAS runtime tile, you can also install the following runtime tiles that extend the functionality of PAS:

Small Footprint PAS

Small Footprint PAS is an alternative to PAS that uses significantly fewer VMs than PAS, but limits system capacity and availability.

For more information about Small Footprint PAS, see Getting Started with Small Footprint PAS.

Pivotal Application Service for Windows (PASW)

PASW lets Ops Manager host apps on Windows VMs and enables Ops Manager developers to push .NET apps to these Windows Diego Cells. You must install PAS before you can install PASW.

For more information about PASW, see Pivotal Application Service for Windows.

Pivotal Isolation Segment

Pivotal Isolation Segment extends PAS to run apps in separate segments with their own isolated computing, routing, and logging resource pools. Operators replicate and configure an Isolation Segment tile for each new resource pool they want to create. You must install PAS before you can install Pivotal Isolation Segment.

To install Pivotal Isolation Segment, see Installing Pivotal Isolation Segment.

Enterprise Pivotal Container Service (Enterprise PKS)

Enterprise PKS lets operators provision, operate, and manage enterprise-grade Kubernetes clusters on Ops Manager. Enterprise PKS is based on the open-source Cloud Foundry Container Runtime project.

To install and configure Enterprise PKS, see Installing Enterprise Enterprise PKS.
