May, 2015 : Cloud Foundry Foundation Sees Rapid Growth


May 18, 2015 - Cloud Foundry Foundation, home of the leading open source cloud native application platform, kicked off the Cloud Foundry Summit today in Santa Clara with significant development progress and strong community growth since the foundation launch in December.

Development progress within the independent Cloud Foundry Foundation has continued to accelerate through dramatic increases in contributions to the project. With the addition of Apigee, Bloomberg, Cloudsoft, Huawei, Mirantis, and New Relic, corporate membership has now grown to more than 40 vendor and end user organizations, representing the United States, EMEA and APAC. The Cloud Foundry user community continues to expand as well, with 120 self-organized local groups, attracting more than 16,500 members from 91 cities in 40 countries around the globe.

On the heels of this growth, 1400 application developers, IT operations experts, technical managers, business leaders, service providers and project contributors are attending the Cloud Foundry Summit today and tomorrow at the Santa Clara Convention Center. Attendees can see how organizations like Comcast, Corelogic, DigitalGlobe, Garmin, GSA, Intel, Kroger and Orange Labs are using Cloud Foundry in their environments. They are also getting a first look at Cloud Foundry advancements announced this week by members including:

Recent technical features and community contributions to the project include:
