Cloud Foundry Steps Up as De Facto Standard for Cloud-Native Development
April 19, 2018 / Scot Petersen
Things are moving fast in cloud application development, in more ways than one. The key pieces needed to build and deploy modern cloud-native applications—Docker and Kubernetes—have become de facto standards for container formats and container orchestration, respectively, in just a few years of existence. A third de facto standard, the open-source developer platform Cloud Foundry, is just a little bit older and a lot quieter, but it is changing the future for a lot of enterprises moving to the cloud. At its fourth North American Summit for 1,500 attendees here this week, Cloud Foundry executives and partners talked up how fast the ecosystem is growing and about how much faster Cloud Foundry users are able to deploy applications at scale and even save some money in the process.
