As agile developers from Pivotal Labs and Cloud Foundry, like you we feel powerful when we get to use our favorite tools, services and stacks. We believe in showing progress to our customers and ourselves daily, and we value speed and simplicity from our toolchain and deployment platform as a means to that goal.
We're pouring all the knowledge we've gained from 20 years of agile development into making PWS and Cloud Foundry a platform for Agile teams. We use it daily for our own mission critical apps so we know you can too.
The agile process was formed by developers to truly take change and translate that into business value. Need a platform that is well integrated into the agile life-cyle and values. Change is the constant. Change is an advantage, deploy faster, parallel.
Choice of runtimes, frameworks and services. We believe the cloud is too big for any one company, we want developers to have the choice of deployment options. PWS is based on CF and allows developers the choice of clouds.
Our products are relevant because we operate with the assumption that teams want to deal with open source technology as much as possible, and resort to closed-source products only when the circumstances justify it.
In the cloud era, the application platform will be delivered as a service, often described as Platform as a Service (PaaS). PaaS makes it much easier to deploy, run and scale applications. Some PaaS offerings have limited language and framework support, do not deliver key application services, or restrict deployment to a single cloud.
Cloud Foundry is the industry's Open PaaS and provides a choice of clouds, frameworks and application services. As an open source project, there is a broad community both contributing and supporting Cloud Foundry. Cloud Foundry's unique vision is to foster contributions from a broad community of developers, users, customers, partners and ISVs while advancing development of the platform at extreme velocity.
