Cloud Foundry for the Ubuntu community?

Monday, September 29th, 2014

Quick question – we have Cloud Foundry in private beta now, is there anyone in the Ubuntu community who would like to use a Cloud Foundry instance if we were to operate that for Ubuntu members?

    What is it?

  2. Allen Says:

    Will this project support RHEL and CentOS as well?

    This is PAAS, not IAAS. Ubuntu OpenStack does support CentOS and RHEL, as do MAAS and Juju, all of which deal with whole operating systems. PAAS deals with apps independent of the OS and is specifically designed to shield developers from caring about an OS. Think Heroku, App Engine or Azure PAAS. As it happens Ubuntu is the OS inside almost all PAAS engines today (the exception being OpenShift which Red Hat has not published for Ubuntu ;)).

    Cloud Foundry is an Open Source PAAS; it’s like Google App Engine or Heroku, but open source so you can run it yourself. We’ve worked with Pivotal, the company that leads Cloud Foundry development (and leads the open foundation around the code) to make Cloud Foundry easy to install and scale out on any cloud, with Juju.
