Using OpenStack to Take Cloud Foundry into High Gear

by August 23, 2013

In this guest post, Piston Cloud CTO and co-founder Josh McKenty shares why Piston’s OpenStack community infrastructure is a catalyst for growing and expanding the Cloud Foundry community.
By now, most of you have noticed Piston’s growing involvement with Cloud Foundry, and our maturing partnership with Pivotal. It started with our collaboration to support running Cloud Foundry on top of OpenStack, and has matured through a number of joint customers, and more recently, a deepening engagement in Cloud Foundry development itself. So today’s announcement that we have agreed to provide community infrastructure for the CF development ecosystem, should come as no surprise.
Last week, we rapidly deployed a Piston OpenStack environment for the Cloud Foundry community.
