Cloud Foundry In 2018
Cloud Foundry is now used by more than half of the Fortune 500 companies and becoming more pervasive in the enterprise. The open-source, multi-cloud application Platform as a Service is backed by companies such as Dell EMC, Pivotal, Google, IBM, Microsoft, SAP and SUSE, many of which offer their own Cloud Foundry platform available to channel partners.
Nobody knows the technology better than Chip Childers, chief technology officer at the Cloud Foundry Foundation, which governs Cloud Foundry.
"Whether you're talking about the Dell Technologies family of companies, or SAP or IBM -- each one of them has a partner program and in each one of those partner programs Cloud Foundry is playing a more prominent role," Childers said. Here are eight reasons why Childers said solution providers need to take a closer look at Cloud Foundry.
