Who Rocks Open Technologies? IBM

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, or better yet, attend the Cloud Foundry Summit  in San Francisco! It’ll be on June 9-11, 2014.

And lastly, be sure to check out Chris Ferris’ article  in the Thoughts on Cloud blog and follow @cloudfoundry <for tweets!
