VMware Inc. has celebrated the first birthday of Cloud Foundry, the industry’s open platform as a service (PaaS), with announcements of new partnerships, a new system for managing open source software contributions, new tools for operating large-scale services, and additional multi-cloud deployment choices.

 

At the event, Steve Herrod, CTO and Senior Vice President of R&D, VMware demonstrated how Cloud Foundry is becoming the open PaaS of choice for the cloud era, giving developers a choice of clouds for deployment, frameworks and application services while dramatically simplifying deployment and scaling of applications.

 

Steve Herrod said, “Since the launch of Cloud Foundry as the first open PaaS one year ago, we’ve seen incredible developer excitement for a better way to build and deploy cloud applications as well as tremendous industry investment in and around Cloud Foundry. By offering a simplified approach that embraces the diversity and speed of modern application development, Cloud Foundry removes complexity at almost every stage of the development process and enables developers to take advantage of innovation that is occurring across the industry.”
