AppDynamics Joins the Cloud Foundry Foundation

I’m pleased to announce that AppDynamics is now a member of the Cloud Foundry Foundation, the nonprofit organization committed to rapid and robust development of the open-source Cloud Foundry Platform-as-a-Service. This organization is playing a critical role in ensuring that the Cloud Foundry ecosystem remains open and available to users, developers, and providers, and that it continues to grow and advance to serve the increasing number of enterprises migrating to the cloud. AppDynamics joins a stellar cast of technology leaders — including IBM, Pivotal, SAP, EMC, Verizon, Akamai and others — to help define and create the future of cloud PaaS.

AppDynamics role with Cloud Foundry is two-fold. First, as a member of the foundation, we’ll offer our unparalleled performance monitoring and cloud experience to help define the standards for the initiative, dedicating resources and contributing code in the true open-source spirit. Second, we’ll create application performance management solutions for our clients who are adopting the Cloud Foundry PaaS.

AppDynamics’ performance credentials for the cloud are impressive. Public, private, or hybrid, we help our customers to realize the full potential of their cloud deployments. Smooth migrations, unprecedented visibility of transactions throughout the cloud, efficient scaling for maximum cost effectiveness — these are just some of the cloud benefits AppDynamics delivers.

The Cloud Foundry open PaaS project, fueled by some of the biggest brands and brightest minds in the technology business, is adding a whole new level of utility and advancing a new dimension of cloud computing in an entirely non-proprietary fashion that is 100% true to the spirit of open source. AppDynamics is proud to be a part of this initiative.

AppDynamics Joins the Cloud Foundry Foundation

Today AppDynamics joins EMC, HP, IBM, Pivotal, Rackspace, SAP, and VMware in the Cloud Foundry Foundation to help create an open cloud ecosystem.

The Cloud Foundry Foundation is a non-profit community focused on fostering the growth of cloud-enabled business practices such as Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS). The Foundation is working towards an enterprise-adopted open PaaS, which can run from any cloud. As enterprise businesses continue to adopt agile processes, this open PaaS will continue to innovate and become an industry-standard architecture.

Pivotal CEO, Paul Maritz stated, “Support from exciting technology and industry users of Cloud Foundry will help ensure the growth and stability of the open PaaS movement, accelerating the development of an agile cloud architecture built for today’s enterprises,” said Maritz. “The broad ecosystem of partners, and the great user experience created through Cloud Foundry will engender new applications and services that will have a wide-reaching impact on people  and the world at large.”

AppDynamics is also joining the Cloud Foundry Summit happening this June to provide insights to a roundtable and lead the direction for an open PaaS and help innovate the IT model. Learn more about the summit here http://cfsummit.com.

“We are very honored to join the Cloud Foundry Foundation alongside the biggest brands and brightest minds in technology,” said Bhaskar Sunkara, chief technology officer at AppDynamics. “Defining the standards for Open Source Platform-as-a-Service will have wide ranging benefits for Enterprises adopting private and public cloud computing. AppDynamics is built from the ground up for cloud environments, and has seen tremendous growth this past year. Our customer feedback clearly points to cloud infrastructure supported by PaaS as a key IT operating model of the future.”
