Microsoft Brings Cloud Foundry Out Of Preview, Opens Access to Pivotal Cloud Foundry

Cloud Hero Azure

Microsoft is pushing aggressively ahead with its Azure platform and considering that its strong growth last quarter is a primary driver of its stock price jump, this shouldn’t come as a surprise. Today, the company has announced that Cloud Foundry on Azure, following-up on the initial support announced for the service back in May, is now generally available to all users of Azure.

For those not familiar with Cloud Foundry, the software makes it easier to build, test, deploy, and scale cloud applications for many different languages. With the announcement today, developers now have a consistent Cloud Foundry experience across Azure and a simplified provisioning workflow by leveraging Azure Resource Manager templates.

Microsoft says that they merged the Azure Cloud Provider Interface (CPI) into upstream, the open source Cloud Foundry repository, which means that Cloud Foundry on Azure is powered by both the Azure team as well as the Cloud Foundry community. In short, this means that Microsoft is, and will continue to, contribute and collaborate with the open source community.
