We’ve got some big news on the Cloud front!

The expansion of Cloud Foundry Foundation sponsorships jumped to 8 additional Gold sponsors: Accenture, BNY Mellon, Capgemini, GE, Ericsson, Intel, NTT and Verizon. That brings the total number of contributing companies to 43!

A huge WELCOME ABOARD to our new Cloud Foundry Foundation sponsors!

Did you know that IBM is one of the original founding sponsors of Cloud Foundry? Cloud Foundry is a global collaboration of developers and cloud computing technologists that seek to produce a ubiquitous Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) open source cloud computing platform for public and private clouds. And IBM wanted to be a part of it. As Angel Diaz, VP of IBM Open Technologies & Cloud Performance, puts it, “IBM sees Cloud Foundry as yet another opportunity to help our clients develop and adopt open cloud computing platforms.”

As you can imagine, there’s also a Codename: BlueMix element! BlueMix is leveraging Cloud Foundry and its capabilities to enable developers to rapidly build, deploy, and manage their cloud applications, all while accessing a growing ecosystem of available services and runtime frameworks. It’s all about building and creating apps!

To learn more about Cloud Foundry, go to http://www.Cloudfoundry.org, or better yet, attend the Cloud Foundry Summit  in San Francisco! It’ll be on June 9-11, 2014.
