  • To set the context, each new era of computing brings with it a new breed of application development platform. We firmly believe that “platform as a service” is the application platform for the cloud era. PaaS as you know brings together the disparate worlds of development and operations and allows developers to consume their platform as a service, which can be a public service or one operated by IT.Our approach can be described as radical simplicity. The hard part of this is delivering simplicity without compromising choice. A lot of the early efforts around PaaS offer simplicity but do so at a pretty great cost. They have technology and/or operational lock-in. You are limited to a specific framework or worse a proprietary variant of a framework. They may only support a particular vendor’s middleware stack. Or there is only a single operator of the paas. You also want to be open wrt the future in terms of your ability to ingest future technologies.We believe it is critical to maintain choice and preserve the hard-won developer victories wrt openness of the past two decades.
  • Existing vs. new apps challengesFree up money to support new applications.Social, mobile, saasHybrid cloud approach with onprem private cloud and off prem public cloud
  • Cloud Foundry is the industry’s first open platform as a service. It provides choice in terms of developer frameworks, application services and clouds for deployment.Frameworks: CF today supports Java Spring, Groovy Grails, Scala Lift, Ruby Rails and Sinatra and Node.js. The polyglot architecture means other frameworks can be added and there are a variety in the pipeline which we’ll talk about.Application Services: CF today supports MongoDB, MySQL, RabbitMQ and Redis. It is also extensible and will support both third party services as well as VMware’s vFabric application services.Clouds: CF is very focused on providing a choice of infrastructure clouds for deployment, including both public and private clouds and a micro cloud edition that can run on a developer’s laptop. In addition to VMware’s vSphere and vCloud infrastructure, Clodu Foundry today also supports bare metal, EC2,, Eucalyptus and OpenStack.
  • 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.
  • Simplify some of the key problems of today Address data problems of the next generation applications
  • vFabricData Director is a new product we are introducing, using Data Director to offer Database-as-a-Service in the Cloud solves these problems. Data Director enables our customers to standup their own database as a service in side their own datacenter. Data Director is built on vSphere platform to extend the virtualization benefits to the database layer. It’s a self-service database provisioning and cloud automation platform that enables organizations to offer database-as-a-service inside their own datacenter and in turn dramatically simplifies database deployment, operations and scaling in the cloud, further, this allows enterprise to keep their data behind the firewall and maintain control. Our longer term goal is for data director to become the unified database virtualization platform, both for traditional and new database. The first database we have enabled on top of this platform is a vSphere-optimized PostgreSQLdatabase.
