Why Cloud Foundry is Making the Open Service Broker API Even More Open

by December 13, 2016

Since becoming the Executive Director for Cloud Foundry, I have been eagerly awaiting today’s launch of the Open Service Broker API project. This collaborative project with Fujitsu, Google, IBM, Pivotal, Red Hat and SAP enables developers, ISVs and SaaS vendors to deliver services to applications running within cloud-native offerings — including Cloud Foundry, OpenShift and Kubernetes — in the most straightforward, effective way possible.
Part of what I love so fiercely about the open source world is the ability to shed ego, come together to collaborate and to envision a radically open future.

Installing Cloud Foundry on Vagrant

This is a guest blog post by Altoros, a software development firm specializing in PaaS enablement and integration services around Hadoop and NoSQL.
Cloud Foundry is by default a highly distributed multi-tenant platform that is usually deployed at scale (>40 nodes) on top of existing virtualized infrastructure (e.g., VMware vSphere or vCloud, Amazon AWS or OpenStack). For the novice Cloud Foundry developer, a full scale PaaS deployment isn’t always an affordable choice. To address this issue, the Cloud Foundry team released Micro Cloud Foundry as a virtual machine image that could be run on a laptop. Micro Cloud Foundry behaved much like a production cloud and provided developers a sandbox to play with.
