Government Digital Service Joins Cloud Foundry Foundation

SAN FRANCISCO, March 17. 2021 Government Digital Service of the UK has joined the Cloud Foundry Foundation, home of one of the most widely-adopted open source cloud technologies in the world, as an Associate Member.

The move comes after Government Digital Service chose Cloud Foundry for its Government as a Platform Service. Government as a Platform is a common core infrastructure of shared digital systems, technology and processes to build user-centric government services. 

“Government Digital Service has been at the forefront of digital transformation for years, standing out as an exceptional example of how governments can significantly improve the citizen experience,” said Chip Childers, executive director, Cloud Foundry Foundation. “The Cloud Foundry community will benefit immensely from the increased input they can provide as a new member of the Foundation.”

The Associate Membership is a new membership tier for pre-approved non-profits, open source projects, and government entities. Government Digital Service joins South Korea’s National Information Society Agency (NIA) as the second government organization to join as a member. Additionally, the United States Government’s platform is a certified distribution of Cloud Foundry.

Government Digital Service joins IBM, SUSE, SAP, and VMware, among others across the globe, as a Foundation member.
