This week two Seattle-based companies, Tier3 and Uhuru Software, contributed .NET Framework support to the Cloud Foundry community. Cloud Foundry was designed from the outset to support multiple developer frameworks and the new .NET support adds to community created support for Erlang, Haskell, PHP, Python and other developer frameworks. We are excited to welcome these contributors to the Cloud Foundry open source community and look forward to .NET developers joining the open platform as a service movement.
As with previous framework contributions, developers will now be able to use the familiar Cloud Foundry semantics to deploy and scale their .NET applications, just as they would with any other supported framework.
How It Works
The contributors are also working on Visual Studio add-ons and MMC snap-ins that allow .NET developers and Windows administrators to harness Cloud Foundry using the tools they already know.
Uhuru Software is a Redmond-based software start-up founded by former Microsoft executives and engineers. They are coming out of stealth mode today and are focused on building .NET solutions for enterprises and will offer support to enterprise customers for .NET on Cloud Foundry.
Integration into Cloud Foundry
We encourage everyone to try out the newly contributed .NET support and provide feedback. Over the coming weeks we will embark on a testing and integration cycle to bring the best of the submitted code into the main Cloud Foundry project so the community can work together to deliver outstanding .NET support for Cloud Foundry.
