Why Tiles?

Whether you are an Independent Software Vendor (ISV) or an internal Pivotal service team, integrating your software service with Pivotal Cloud Foundry (PCF) makes the service easily available and usable by the growing PCF ecosystem. Pivotal supports these integrations and is committed to making the process as easy as possible.

Services integrate with PCF through “tiles” that users download from Pivotal Network and install through the Ops Manager Installation Dashboard. These tiles provide a modular and standardized interface that PCF operators use to configure, publish, manage, and upgrade software services, whether the services are for their own use, or for use by PCF app developers.

The Tile Developer Guide explains how to create a service tile for PCF through a proven, staged development process. You are welcome to start this process on your own, or contact us to ask for our support or publish your integration in the Pivotal Network Marketplace.
