Preserving Cloud Application Portability – Introducing Cloud Foundry Core

featured-cf-genericThe Cloud Foundry team is happy to announce Cloud Foundry Core – a program designed to preserve cloud application portability.

In the cloud computing world, preserving a choice of clouds is critical. The risks of being locked into a single cloud are substantial. Pricing, reliability, geographic location and compliance can all vary between clouds. Business requirements will evolve over time, necessitating the ability to move between clouds, whether public to private, private to public or between public cloud providers.

Cloud Foundry Core provides a baseline of common capabilities and an open mechanism to instantly validate application portability.

Cloud Foundry Core defines specific versions for application services and runtimes and introduces a system of current, next, and deprecated to provide access to feature innovation, enhanced performance and greater stability as applications continue to evolve.

AppFog, Tier 3, Uhuru Software, Micro Cloud Foundry™ and CloudFoundry.com are now Core compatible as part of their commitment to preserving cloud portability.
