Pivotal Doubles Membership of Cloud Foundry Foundation 16 Silver members expand open source and community-led movement to evolve the tech industry's leading platform as a service
SAN FRANCISCO, May 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
- Pivotal today announced that it has expanded the non-profit Cloud Foundry Foundation by welcoming 16 new companies that have signed membership applications to join the Foundation as Silver level members, bringing the total sponsorship of the Foundation to 33. They represent the latest sponsors helping to create an open ecosystem to foster the growth and development of the Cloud Foundry community.
- The new Silver Members are Alpine Data Labs, Altoros, Anchora, Anynines, AppDynamics, Azul Systems, Blue Box, Canonical, CloudCredo, Docker, jFrog, MongoDB, Piston Cloud Computing, RedisLabs, Stark & Wayne, and Telus.
- Earlier this year, Pivotal created a formal, open governance model for Cloud Foundry, led initially by EMC, HP, IBM, Pivotal, Rackspace, SAP and VMware, each of whom recognize that a collective effort from across the technology and other industries will spur the development and growth of a truly open enterprise Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) that is agile, flexible and easy to use.
- The community and sponsors will gather for the Cloud Foundry Summit this June 9-11, 2014 in San Francisco, where dedicated community members will share information, exchange ideas and influence the future direction of the leading Open Source Platform-as-a-Service. Register at http://cfsummit.com
Pivotal, the software company at the intersection of big data, PaaS, and agile development, today announced that 16 Silver level members have committed to join the Cloud Foundry® Foundation, completing the latest round of sponsors who will make up the Foundation's first members when it is formed this Fall. The quick and rapid formation of the Foundation members demonstrates the appetite for a multi-cloud platform-as-a-service as key to a new computing architecture that will help businesses succeed in the era of the cloud. The Foundation now has companies across technology, retail, telecom, and finance industries.
"Support of Cloud Foundry from its exciting technology and industry users will ensure that the open PaaS movement supports the growth and evolution of a new cloud architecture built for today's enterprises," said Leo Spiegel, senior vice president, corporate development, Pivotal. "The great user experience created through Cloud Foundry, supported by a broad ecosystem, is giving rise to applications and services that will have a wide-reaching impact on people and the world at large."
The non-profit Cloud Foundry Foundation expands the spirit and community effort to evolve and extend Cloud Foundry, the leading enterprise platform-as-a-service from Pivotal. Each new Silver level sponsor will advise on Foundation objectives, and provide resources to grow the community and its ecosystem. The new Silver Foundation members have signed membership applications until the foundation formally launches in the Fall of 2014.
