Cloud Foundry Core Released To Developers

Cloud Foundry, the VMware-sponsored open source initiative to provide interoperable platform as a service clouds, moved to simplify its effort to provide PaaS interoperability.

That interoperability comes in the form of its new Cloud Foundry Core, a framework aimed at enabling developers to build portable applications across PaaS-based clouds and includes an open mechanism to validate that an app is portable along the lines of the Cloud Foundry specs. It allows developers to enter an API endpoint to its Cloud Foundry Core-compatible.

It provides common capabilities based on the Cloud Foundry Core Definition (CFCD), which includes common runtimes and services based on open development standards such as Java, Ruby, Node.js, MongoDB, MySQL, PostgreSQL, RabbitMQ and Redis.

In connection with the release of Cloud Foundry Core, five cloud providers launched compatible instances: AppFog which provides a PaaS cloud deployment architecture; CloudFoundry.com, VMWare's public instance of Cloud Foundry based on its vSphere infrastructure; Micro Cloud Foundry, the tool that lets developers run Cloud Foundry instances on their client devices; Tier 3, an enterprise infrastructure as a service (IaaS) provider and Uhuru Software, which allows developers to run their .NET and SQL Server applications on Cloud Foundry.
