Cloud Foundry Foundation Established to Advance Platform-as-a-Service

Cloud Foundry Foundation, a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) open source project, has been launched as an independent non-profit foundation. The Cloud Foundry Foundation will be managed as a Linux Foundation Collaborative Project and operate under a system of open governance created by a team of open source experts from founding Platinum Members EMC, HP, IBM, Intel, Pivotal, SAP and VMware. As a Linux Foundation Collaborative Project, the Cloud Foundry Foundation will benefit from a deep pool of open source expertise and guidance on best practices for management, operations, advocacy, and governance.

"IBM joined the Cloud Foundry project in June 2013, with a strong commitment, resources and the conviction to help make Cloud Foundry ready for the enterprise. As the foundation for IBM Bluemix, Cloud Foundry is an essential open technology for the IBM Cloud. We're really excited to see the culmination of the nearly year long journey to open governance and the Cloud Foundry Foundation launch, and even more optimistic about Cloud Foundry's future as the recognized standard for Platform-as-a-Service," said Angel Diaz, IBM Vice President Open Technology and Cloud Performance Solutions
