VANCOUVER, May 1, 2014 /CNW/ - ActiveState announces its ongoing support
as a founding Gold-level sponsor for the non-profit organization known
as the Cloud Foundry foundation and applauds the expanding community.
Today, new Gold members, Accenture, BNY Mellon, Capgemini, GE,
Ericsson, Intel, NTT and Verizon join founding Gold members CenturyLink
and ActiveState, and founding Platinum members EMC, HP, IBM, Pivotal,
Rackspace, SAP and VMware, as members of the Cloud Foundry foundation.
Pivotal launched the Cloud Foundry foundation in February 2014 to
develop and advance an industry standard for multi-cloud
platform-as-a-service (PaaS) solutions for enterprise computing.
The foundation is dedicated to the evolution and growth of the Cloud
Foundry open source project as well as the ecosystem and community
around it. All members have signed a non-binding memorandum of
understanding. The foundation will transition to a formal governance
model and is slated to officially launch in the fall of 2014.
ActiveState will be attending the Cloud Foundry Summit this June 9-11,
2014 in San Francisco. At the conference, community members will
exchange ideas and take part in shaping the future direction of open
source platform-as-a-service. Register at http://cfsummit.com.
"ActiveState's Stackato platform is based on Cloud Foundry and can be installed on any private
internal clouds or public and hybrid IaaS platforms," commented Bart
Copeland, President and CEO at ActiveState. "The Company is committed
to the Cloud Foundry open source project as both sponsor and
contributor as we seek to ensure openness and long-term community
support for our enterprise customers."
"Cloud Foundry is the de-facto open PaaS standard and as the Cloud
Foundry open source project continues to grow, we look forward to
ongoing contributions along with the other partners to foster robust
growth and development, and an open community with a thriving
ecosystem," added Copeland.
