(2011-11-22) Cloud Foundry
Cloud Foundry is an Open Source PaaS framework. It's written in Ruby, but intended to host any language (but so far only Ruby On Rails and JVM languages) or other component. “The code is absolutely infrastructure agnostic,” Lucovsky says. “We developed it on our Mac laptops, and at launch, we were running it on Amazon [EC2]. We’ve been running it on vSphere and [V Mware's infrastructure cloud platform] vCloud and bare metal machines.”... Maritz says V Mware doesn’t have a concrete plan for making money from Cloud Foundry. “A leap of faith,” he calls it... This summer, V Mware took its egalitarian stance even further when it introduced a version of Cloud Foundry that runs on your personal laptop.
