To deploy, run and scale applications in cloud
VMware, a provider of virtualisation and cloud infrastructure, has introduced Cloud Foundry, an open Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS).
The Cloud Foundry represents a new-gen of application platform, architected for cloud computing environments and delivered as a service from enterprise data centres and public cloud service providers.
The company said that the Cloud Foundry streamlines the development, delivery and operations of modern applications, enhancing the ability of developers to deploy, run and scale their applications in cloud environments while embracing the widest choice of public and private clouds.
Cloud Foundry is a modern application platform built to simplify the end-to-end development, deployment and operation of cloud era applications.
The new Cloud Foundry orchestrates heterogeneous application services and applications built in multiple frameworks and automate deployment of applications and their underlying infrastructure across diverse cloud infrastructures.
Cloud Foundry will be offered in multiple delivery models including: New VMware Operated Developer Service; Open Source, Community PaaS Project; New Cloud Foundry Micro Cloud; and Cloud Foundry for the Enterprise and Service Providers.
VMware application platform strategy senior vice-president Rod Johnson said Cloud Foundry’s open architecture and community process will enable developers to enjoy PaaS productivity and simplicity while extending the technology to their specific needs.
