Cloud Foundry Enablement for Enterprises:

The Cloud Foundry ecosystem offers open source and commercial solutions empowering organizations with release engineering tools and self-service environments for building, deploying, scaling, and managing modern container-driven applications.

How Does Your Organization Address Vital Operational Concerns?

Compliance Deed: Companies need a reliable mechanism ensuring application compliance with a set of architectural principles to meet SLA requirements, address spikes in traffic, and ward off security issues. Key enterprise-grade concerns like user management, security, and compliance have to be consistently addressed as well.

The Need for Speed: Gone are the days when it took months to release features to end users. Organizations today have to speed up the application development process to keep up with the startup pace of delivering changes and update apps in production as frequently as needed (in an extreme case, hourly).

Infrastructure Provisioning Burden: Enterprises pursue to free IT from labor-intensive operations and provide development teams with self-service infrastructures—app environments and backing services—at will, capitalize on the existing cloud investments, or take a private data center to a whole new level of productivity.
