About CVS

CVS is an American drug retailing company headquartered in Woonsocket, Rhode Island and is the largest retail pharmacy chain in the United States, offering online pharmacy services.

We initially planned to use a standalone Spring Cloud Gateway application, however, after weighing the pros and cons, we decided to use the robust, VMware supported Spring Cloud Gateway tile available through Tanzu Application Service. ”

CVS and VMware Tanzu

CVS Pharmacy, a Fortune 4 company and the largest pharmacy chain in the USA, replaced their 20th century process of mailing CD-ROMs containing documents with a modern file sharing application in just seven weeks. To do this, CVS focused on providing its developers with modern tools and a frictionless experience that allowed developers to concentrate on business logic instead of getting bogged down in infrastructure. Development teams adopted Spring Cloud Gateway available through VMware Tanzu Application Service to build and host this new application. Using Spring Cloud Gateway helps shield this business-critical application against malicious requests and memory leaks, improving resiliency for thousands of internal and external users during critical business hours.
