Cloud Foundry Container Runtime Gets Kubernetes-Certified
I’m thrilled to share that our project team is part of the launch of the CNCF Kubernetes Software Conformance Certification Program. Cloud Foundry’s involvement with the Kubernetes community is significant, as it offers the ability to run Kubernetes in tandem with the Cloud Foundry Application Runtime. You can learn more about this announcement and its importance to Cloud Foundry in Chip’s blog post.
The Platform Landscape
We are publishing a three-part white paper series on the platform landscape, the many use cases for PaaS and CaaS, as well as how to get started with Cloud Foundry. Our first paper has already been published by IDG. Let us know what you think!
