Cloud Foundry is an open source Cloud Platform as a Service "OpenPaaS" project created by VMware, developed in Ruby on Ubuntu. It is multi-language/framework (Java, Ruby, Node), multi-service (MongoDB, Reddis, MySQL, Postgres, RabbitMQ) and multi-cloud: it runs on your laptop, as Micro Cloud Foundry, an Ubuntu VMware image containing the whole platform,
but it can also run on many Cloud infrastructure providers (Cloudfoundry.com, Appfog, ActiveState), and can be used to create your own private cloud.
In this talk Patrick will talk about Cloud Foundry and its potential for developers, IT managers and Sysadmins.
The talk will be follwed by a demo some of Juju charms that allow you to deploy your own Ubuntu based multi-node cloud foundry platform on Amazon EC2 in 10 minutes.
