Pivotal Application Service for Windows


Pivotal Application Service (PAS) for Windows enables operators to provision, operate, and manage Windows cells on Pivotal Platform.

After operators install the PAS for Windows tile on the Ops Manager Installation Dashboard, developers can push .NET applications to Windows cells using the Cloud Foundry Command Line Interface (cf CLI).

For the PAS for Windows release notes, see the PAS for Windows v2.7 Release Notes topic.


To install the PAS for Windows tile, you must have the following:

  • Ops Manager v2.7 and PAS v2.7 deployed to vSphere, Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud Platform (GCP), or Azure.

  • A Windows stemcell, which you can obtain by following the directions in Downloading or Creating Windows Stemcells.

The minimum resource requirements for each Windows cell are as follows:

  • Disk size: 64 GB (100 GB recommended)

  • Memory: 16 GB

  • CPUs: 4
