  • There are four key initiatives to Cloud Foundry1.) which is the open source project. The code is on GitHub and licensed under the very permissive Apache 2 license.2.) – which is a VMware-operated service instance. Makes sure we’re eating our own dogfood.3.) Micro Cloud Foundry – this is the “honey I shrank the cloud” version for developers who can run a complete instance on their local laptop.4.) “Project Bento” is the enterprise version of Cloud Foundry designed to run on private clouds.We’ll drill down on each of these…
  • Micro Cloud Foundry is a complete instance of cloud foundry designed to run in a VM on a developer’s machine.So we take the entire cloud model and bring it back to the PCDevelopers have been building their own versions from the open source, so this saves them the work by being pre-built, but also adds an important feature. Dynamic DNS support means you can deploy apps to your micro cloud and serve live traffic regardless of whether you’re in the office, coffee shop, home or wherever.It is distributed as a VM image and works on VMWare player, VMware Workstation or Fusion. Depending on the apps and how much horsepower your machine has, should be able to support 6-12 apps.It is a full instance and fully symetrical with other instances. So can work locally, work offline and then push your app to other instances of CF.
