Cloud Foundry Platform as a Service (PaaS) in Ubuntu 11.10

Canonical

on 17 August 2011

This article is more than 12 years old.


Great news that Ubuntu 11.10 will include Cloud Foundry, an open source Platform as a Service (PaaS) that enables developers to build, deploy and run Cloud applications. Other PaaS offerings have typically locked you into using specific frameworks and services defined by the PaaS vendor as well as proprietary host platforms. This has made migrating applications between different providers as well as moving applications back into your own data center difficult if not impossible.

Cloud Foundry is the world’s first Open PaaS with your choice of frameworks, application services and Cloud deployment platforms. Cloud Foundry is made to be extensible so that while Spring, Rails, Sinatra and Node.js apps are supported today more frameworks can be added in the future as they gain in popularity. Even more exciting is that you will be able to run your PaaS in any cloud or behind your own firewall if you choose. No lock-in to a single development framework or Cloud vendor!

In Ubuntu 11.10 we’ve added client and server deployment tools using Ensemble that allow you to easily deploy a single node server in minutes as well as a distributed, multi node environment quickly and easily to create a production quality PaaS. You can deploy applications in AWS, Openstack or on your own internal servers.

Stay tuned as we’ll be doing more exciting work with Cloud Foundry. We encourage you to check out Cloud Foundry in Ubuntu 11.10 and learn more about the project at www.cloudfoundry.org
