Google joins a open source Cloud Foundry Foundation


Google is fasten a Cloud Foundry Foundation as a Gold member. To be fair, this doesn’t necessarily come as a vital surprise, generally given that Google recently hired the foundation’s former CEO Sam Ramji.

Other Cloud Foundry Gold-level members embody Accenture, Allstate, CenturyLink, Huawai, Phillips and Verizon. It’s value observant that Google — distinct Cisco, IBM, SAP and others — didn’t opt for a top turn of sponsorship (platinum), though.

“From a beginning, a idea for Google Cloud Platform has been to build a many open cloud for all developers and businesses alike, and make it easy for them to build and run good software,” Google Cloud VP Brian Stevens writes in a announcement. “A vast partial of this is being an active member of a open source village and operative directly with developers where they are, either they’re during an rising startup or a vast enterprise.”

In many ways, Cloud Foundry is a Platform-as-a-Service reflection to a OpenStack Infrastructure-as-a-Service plan (Google is also an OpenStack backer). Stevens records that Google was already operative closely with a Cloud Foundry village before fasten a substructure and enabled a use of Cloud Foundry on a Google Cloud Platform. It’s also integrated Cloud Foundry with a Stackdriver hybrid monitoring resolution and some of a other cloud services.

Google is apparently meddlesome in ensuring that Cloud Foundry users can simply user their elite height in a cloud. Cloud Foundry users also tend to be a kind of vast craving companies that Google is perplexing to court. Given a sinecure of Sam Ramji, I’m certain we’ll see utterly a bit some-more Google/Cloud Foundry news in a nearby future.
