Cloud Foundry Foundation: the facts
The Cloud Foundry Foundation is a non-profit legal entity established in February 2014 to provide formal governance for Cloud Foundry, an open source Platform-as-
At the beginning of May 2014, eight new Gold-level members joined the foundation: Accenture, BNY Mellon, Capgemini, Ericsson, GE, Intel, NTT, and Verizon. The new expansion on May 29, 2014 added 16 Silver Members, bringing the total number of foundation benefactors to 33.
Why Altoros joins the foundation
Since the first days of the Cloud Foundry release, Altoros has been its devoted fan and an active contributor. The company delivered the Cloud Foundry Vagrant Installer back in the times when only a few people had deployed Cloud Foundry v2. The company was among the pioneers who contributed code to the early CF v2 releases, including development of BOSH CPIs and Juju Charms.
“Altoros will continue to contribute resources and code to help the Foundation fulfill its mission,” said Renat Khasanshyn, CEO of Altoros. “Just over the past 45 days, I’ve travelled twice across the US to promote Cloud Foundry at eight developer events: from Silicon Valley to Boston and New York, from Washington DC to San Diego and Los Angeles. Thank you, my colleagues at Altoros and our partners at Pivotal/EMC, IBM, HP, ActiveState, and Canonical, for making this happen.”

What’s next: the Cloud Foundry Summit
During June 9–11, 2014, the foundation members will discuss the future roadmap of Cloud Foundry (both the platform and the community) at the CF Summit in San Francisco, CA. 600+ attendees at large have already registered to share their best practices. As part of the ecosystem, Altoros supports the event as a Gold Sponsor and will deliver a lightning talk.
In addition, two in-depth Cloud Foundry trainings are scheduled by Altoros for June 9 and 12. The workshops will be geared at developers and DevOps who would like to prepare for the CF Summit and gain practical skills in deploying and operating Cloud Foundry.
Until June 6, 2014, one can take advantage of the promo code CFWS and get $300 off the tuition cost (valid for the first 20 registered):
