Cloud Foundry is the LAMP Stack of Cloud Computing

The Cloud Zone is brought to you in partnership with Mendix. Better understand the aPaaS landscape and how the right platform can accelerate your software delivery cadence and capacity with the Gartner 2015 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Application Platform as a Service.

Just as the LAMP stack provided a core foundation next gen for web applications, Cloud Foundry is providing a core foundation for next gen cloud platforms.




Cloud Foundry is proving itself to be truly the foundry for creating entirely new cloud offerings:

  • ActiveState is building a cloud for Python and Django and contributing code to support Python back to the Cloud Foundry open source project.
  • Appfog is building a cloud for PHP developers and contributing code to support PHP back to the Cloud Foundry open source project

The beauty of this is that innovative startups are able to start with a scalable cloud "stack" that gives them a multi-language PaaS without locking them into a particular cloud provider.

So for example, Appfog gets to use Cloud Foundry's best in class PaaS services and then target deployment to Amazon's EC2 and services like S3. Appfog CEO Lucas Carlson blogged here about how standing on the shoulders of cloud computing giants will allow Appfog to win in the cloud by providing the most compelling user experience.

Expect to see the pace of innovation accelerate dramatically going forward!
