Google lance Secure and Reliable Open Source Cloud Server
Google is becoming a member of the Cloud Foundry Basis as a Gold member. To be truthful, this doesn’t essentially come as a significant shock, particularly provided that Google lately employed the basis’s former CEO Sam Ramji.
Different Cloud Foundry Gold-level members embody Accenture, Allstate, CenturyLink, Huawai, Phillips and Verizon. It’s price noting that Google — in contrast to Cisco, IBM, SAP and others — didn’t go for the best stage of sponsorship (platinum), although.
“From the start, our aim for Google Cloud Platform has been to construct essentially the most open cloud for all builders and companies alike, and make it simple for them to construct and run nice software program,” Google Cloud VP Brian Stevens writes within the announcement. “A giant a part of that is being an energetic member of the open supply neighborhood and dealing instantly with builders the place they’re, whether or not they’re at an rising startup or a big enterprise.”
In some ways, Cloud Foundry is the Platform-as-a-Service counterpart to the OpenStack Infrastructure-as-a-Service venture (Google can also be an OpenStack backer). Stevens notes that Google was already working intently with the Cloud Foundry neighborhood earlier than becoming a member of the inspiration and enabled the usage of Cloud Foundry on the Google Cloud Platform. It’s additionally built-in Cloud Foundry with its Stackdriver hybrid monitoring resolution and a few of its different cloud companies.
Google is clearly excited by making certain that Cloud Foundry customers can simply consumer their most well-liked platform in its cloud. Cloud Foundry customers additionally are typically the sort of huge enterprise firms that Google is making an attempt to court docket. Given the rent of Sam Ramji, I’m positive we’ll see fairly a bit extra Google/Cloud Foundry information within the close to future.
