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 Platinum member of the Cloud Foundry Foundation, SAP is actively engaged in helping to define one of the industry-leading, open-source PaaS technologies as well as part of the evolving ecosystem around it. It is important to be open, and we believe that Cloud Foundry is fast becoming ‘a platform of choice’ for many of SAP’s partners, customers and developers. SAP is committed to contributing to open-source PaaS technologies, including integration of technologies such as the SAP HANA® platform and Internet of Things as part of SAP HANA Cloud Platform," said Björn Goerke, executive vice president and corporate officer, Product and Innovation Technology, SAP.
