Cloud Foundry Foundation, home of the industry-standard platform for cloud applications, has announced Microsoft has joined as a Gold Member. With a leading public cloud platform Microsoft Azure, and deep enterprise experience, Microsoft will bring valuable skills and technology to the open source software community and the Foundation.

Over the past few years, Microsoft has increased its engagement with open source projects and communities, including joining the Linux Foundation in November 2016. The company is currently a leading open source contributor on GitHub and has released .NET Core in open source. Cloud Foundry is already a first-class citizen on Azure. In just the past six months, core usage of Cloud Foundry has increased 300 percent on Azure.

"Microsoft is widely recognized as one of the most important enterprise technology and cloud providers in the world," said Abby Kearns, Executive Director, Cloud Foundry Foundation. "Cloud Foundry has the greatest number of deployments of any cloud application platform in the enterprise, and is used by most Fortune 500 organizations. We share both a tremendous number of users and a common approach to the enterprise cloud."

Corey Sanders, Partner Director, Microsoft Corp. said, "Microsoft and the Cloud Foundry community are deeply aligned around our mutual understanding of enterprise business and technical requirements, and our commitment to help organizations modernize their applications without vendor lock-in. By joining the Cloud Foundry Foundation, we will be able to work with members to contribute to Foundation initiatives and bring a wider range of solutions to Microsoft Azure for our customers and the community."

Cloud Foundry is an open source technology backed by the largest technology companies in the world, including Cisco, Dell/EMC, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Google, IBM, Microsoft, Pivotal, SAP and SUSE, and is being used by leaders in manufacturing, telecommunications and financial services. Only Cloud Foundry delivers the velocity needed to continuously deliver apps at the speed of business. Cloud Foundry's container-based architecture runs apps in any language on your choice of cloud —  Azure, Google Cloud Platform (GCP), Amazon Web Services (AWS), OpenStack, VMware vSphere, SoftLayer and more. With a robust services ecosystem and simple integration with existing technologies, Cloud Foundry is the modern standard for mission critical apps for global organizations.
