Cloud Foundry Lets You Create Apps, Not the Platform

Run apps in your language and framework of choice.

  • Java
  • Node
  • Go
  • Python
  • PHP
  • Ruby
  • .NET

Any App

Cloud Foundry has a container-based architecture that runs apps in any programming language. Deploy apps to CF using your existing tools and with zero modification to the code. Instantiate, deploy, and manage high-availability Kubernetes clusters with CF BOSH on any cloud.

Any cloud

By decoupling applications from infrastructure, you can make individual decisions about where to host workloads – on premise, in public clouds, or in managed infrastructures – and move those workloads as necessary in minutes, with no changes to the app.

Access to services

Applications deployed to Cloud Foundry access external resources via the Open Service Broker API. See available services and integrations in The Foundry.

Easy Integration

Cloud Foundry won’t disrupt your current workflow. It is compatible with the tech and tools you use today – whether that’s AWS or Docker or Kubernetes or Java or .NET – and just about anything in your current environment.

Highly Interoperable

Cloud Foundry is highly adaptable and will withstand shifts in technology so you can adopt new tools, languages or platforms down the road.

Open Source

Cloud Foundry is an open source project with an open contribution and open governance model that gives users maximum flexibility to avoid vendor lock-in. We help to oversee a trustworthy community of diverse minds who have come together to tackle all kinds of challenges. More perspectives and divergent thinking mean stronger code.

Cloud Foundry Projects

The Cloud Foundry project teams direct strategy, development and quality control of the core components of the Cloud Foundry platform.

KubeCF is a distribution of Cloud Foundry Application Runtime (CFAR) for Kubernetes. It works with the cf-operator from Project Quarks to deploy and manage releases built from cf-deployment.
Project Eirini is a project to provide pluggable scheduling for the Cloud Foundry Application Runtime.
Project Quarks aims to enable the deployment of BOSH Releases to container schedulers. This is an incubating project.
Application Runtime is a code-centric platform that simplifies the lives of developers. It takes your code, written in any language or framework, and runs it on any cloud.
Open Service Broker API project provides backing services to workloads for ISVs, SaaS providers and developers. Easily deliver and manage service offerings running on Cloud Native platforms such as Cloud Foundry or Kubernetes.
Paketo Buildpacks provide language runtime support for applications. They leverage the Cloud Native Buildpacks framework to make image builds easy, performant, and secure.
Bosh is a cloud-agnostic open source tool for release engineering, deployment, and lifecycle management of complex distributed systems.
Cloud Foundry Extensions PMC supports projects that are extensions to the Cloud Foundry Runtime and BOSH platforms.
