VMware just launched Cloud Foundry, which is a PaaS. Platform as a Service. According to the FAQ, there will be three offerings:
- CloudFoundry.com – a complete hosted PaaS environment.
- CloudFoundry.org – an open source cloud.
- CloundFoundry Micro – a downloadable instance to run on the desktop for developers.
The website didn’t contain a lot of details, but The Console, VMware’s Executive Blog breaks it down very well. I recommend reading it!
I’m excited to see what this will become!
