YugaByte DB Enterprise for PCF

This documentation describes YugaByte DB Enterprise for Pivotal Cloud Foundry (PCF) which contains two components: YugaWare (YugaByte DB management console) in Pivotal Container Service (PKS) and the YugaByte Service Broker for PCF. YugaWare helps manage YugaByte Enterprise Edition by integrating orchestration, monitoring, and alerting all in one application. The documentation also describes YugaByte Service Broker for PCF. The YugaByte Service Broker registers a service broker on PCF and exposes its service plans on the Marketplace.


YugaWare is a management console for YugaByte Enterprise Edition DB. It provides an interface to carry out various Enterprise functions like software upgrade, backups, and alerts. Users can also use the management console to monitor their DB performance by viewing the metrics. The management console exposes several of these functions’ APIs as well.

The YugaByte Service Broker for PCF registers a service broker with PCF and exposes its service plans on the Marketplace. Developers can then create service plan instances using Apps Manager or the Cloud Foundry Command Line Interface (cf CLI) to bind them to their apps. The service broker talks to the YugaWare management console via the API interface.

Key Features

YugaByte DB Enterprise for PCF includes the following key features:

  • High Performance — Over 90% better performance than Cassandra when handling over 10 million keys. The denser the data sets, the better YugaByte DB performs versus other databases.
  • Transactional — Support for distributed ACID transactions across PKS nodes, containers, and availability zones.
  • Planet-Scale — Automated scale-out and rebalancing across PKS availability zones without downtime or performance bottlenecks.
  • Development Agility — Support for Cassandra, Redis, and PostgreSQL wire compatible APIs to accelerate development.
  • Cloud Native — Designed from the ground up for the cloud and containers. Runs on Pivotal, AWS, Google Cloud, Azure, Docker, and private data centers to support any hybrid deployment.
  • Open Source — Transparent and extensible, Apache 2.0 licensed.
