ActiveState Joins EMC, IBM, HP, Pivotal, Rackspace, SAP, VMware and CenturyLink to Bring Open Multi-Cloud Platform-as-a-Service to Enterprise Computing

VANCOUVER, BC -- (Marketwired) -- 02/24/14 -- ActiveState today announced that it will join EMC, IBM, HP, Pivotal, Rackspace, SAP, VMware and CenturyLink to structure an independent non-profit organization known as the Cloud Foundry foundation with an open governance model. The foundation will be dedicated to the evolution and growth of the Cloud Foundry open source project as well as the ecosystem and community around it. Cloud Foundry is licensed under the Apache License 2.0, which has already enabled multiple major companies and more than 750 individual contributors to contribute to the project. The project will be retaining this license as it transitions to a formal governance model. ActiveState will join the foundation as a Gold level founding sponsor.

"ActiveState has had great success with Stackato® (based on Cloud Foundry)," commented Bart Copeland, President and CEO at ActiveState. "Stackato equips enterprises with greater agility, empowers innovation through a quick cloud deployment process and puts the security of enterprises' information assets first, with our customer-inspired DevOps dashboard and real-time social monitoring tools."

"We look forward to contributing along with the other partners to help ensure that Cloud Foundry remains the open PaaS standard in the future. Cloud Foundry is already arguably the de facto open PaaS standard and we are extremely excited that this new Cloud Foundry foundation will be governing the project moving forward," added Copeland.
