Today I am pleased to announce that Redis Labs is joining the Cloud Foundry Foundation as a Silver level member. The Cloud Foundry Foundation is a non-profit initiative by Pivotal that will provide formal and open governance for the Cloud Foundry Platform-as-a-Service. The Foundation, which already boasts some of the industry’s biggest names as Platinum members, is expected to be fully formed and formally launched by this fall.
By joining the Cloud Foundry Foundation, Redis Labs will be actively involved in advancing and contributing to the development and adoption of the open-source enterprise PaaS. We feel this is a golden opportunity for us to help in shaping the next evolutionary step of cloud computing, which will herald the era of true enterprise clouds.
Our commitment to the Cloud Foundry initiative is best described in this quote from our CTO, Yiftach Shoolman:
“Cloud Foundry has been and will continue to be a pivotal element in our company’s vision. We view it as the ultimate stepping stone for enterprises’ adoption of cloud technologies because it ties together all the necessary elements: technological innovation, robustness and ease of use on top of the transparency that only an open source project can provide.”
Although the Foundation’s work is not planned for commencement until later this year, we are already heavily involved with all things Cloud Foundry. In addition to offering our Redis Cloud and Memcached Cloud services through the Pivotal Web Services Marketplace, we are also in the advanced stages of several other CF-related projects with our partners. If you want to learn more about Redis Labs and Cloud Foundry, come and meet our team at the Cloud Foundry Summit. Make sure you also check Yiftach’s recommended tracks for the event.
