OpenStack gets Cloud Foundry boost
New open source project to get VMware’s PaaS running on OpenStack
OpenStack company Piston Cloud Computing has launched a new open source project to port VMware Cloud Foundry to run on OpenStack.
The company is cooperating with VMware to enable Piston Cloud Computing to develop the Cloud Provider Interface that integrates OpenStack cloud infrastructure with Cloud Foundry.
The company will distribute and support this new integrated capability in a future release of Piston Enterprise OS. This new project will be submitted to the OpenStack satellite ecosystem for future consideration as an OpenStack incubation project.
The integration takes advantage of Cloud Foundry BOSH, the recently announced open source tool chain for release engineering, deployment and life cycle management of very large scale instances of Cloud Foundry. The Piston Cloud development team will work closely with the VMware Cloud Foundry engineering team on this integrated OpenStack and Cloud Foundry community project over time.
"We're delighted to see Piston Cloud take the lead for integrated OpenStack and Cloud Foundry solutions," said Jerry Chen, vice president of cloud and application services at VMware. "It is vital to our customers that Cloud Foundry be a true multi-cloud offering. We look forward to supporting the engineering effort as well as our mutual customers."
Joshua McKenty, chief executive and co-founder of Piston Cloud Computing said that private clouds are set to transform IT economics for enterprise. He added that with the two company’s joint commitment to the project “ VMware and Piston Cloud are driving this transformation forward."
