Drivers Behind Intel’s Choice of Cloud Foundry

by August 16, 2012

The choice of application platform can have tangible consequences on development agility and productivity, especially when the developer community is as large as that at Intel.
In this guest blog, Catherine Spence, the Enterprise Architect and PaaS Lead for Intel IT’s Cloud Computing program, explains why Intel chose Cloud Foundry open PaaS for an enterprise private PaaS pilot.
Our goal at Intel was to let software developers get an innovative idea into production in less than a day.
One of the large aspects of meeting this goal is delivering a robust PaaS solution. We made a decision in mid-2011 that PaaS would enable this goal, and for our wide range of data and security requirements, running it in our private cloud was paramount.
