We’re counting the hours to Cloud Foundry Summit in Frankfurt, kicking off with the Unconference on Monday, September 26 at 5:00 pm. This year’s Unconference will be hosted by two exceptional women, Sara Lenz of anynines and Paula Kennedy of Pivotal. We sat down with both of them to learn about their relationship to Cloud Foundry and the community, their experiences as women in a male-dominated industry and what they’re looking forward to at Summit!

OpenStack Swift as a Cloud Foundry service

This is a guest blog post by anynines, a Cloud Foundry hosted cloud provider from Europe.
In the past few years, the perception of cloud hosting has been revolutionized by the growth of IaaS and PaaS environments. However, many of the major hosting companies are US-based. In order to assure that data subject to European Union data privacy regulations stays in the EU, it might be important for some users to choose an IaaS that is completely EU-based (unlike AWS, for example).
We are committed to solving this challenge. Say “hello” to anynines – a solution for European cloud enthusiasts (or any others!) looking for safe, 100% European PaaS hosting.
