Cloud Foundary

Cloud Foundry is an open source cloud computing platform originally developed in-house at VMware. It is now owned by Pivotal Software, which is a joint venture made up of VMware,  EMC, and General Electric.

Cloud Foundry is optimized to deliver:

  • Fast application development and deployment.
  • Highly scalable and available architecture.
  • DevOps-friendly workflows.
  • A reduced chance of human error.
  • Multi-tenant compute efficiencies.


WSO2 is an open-source technology provider founded in 2006. It offers an enterprise platform for integrating application programming interfaces (APIs), applications, and web services locally and across the Internet. If you work intensely on SOA, you must surely deal with a lot of internal and external APIs. That is the scenario where WSO2 shines, thanks to its API Manager, which is capable of handling the full API lifecycle. WSO2 provides compliance with most of the requirements your clients could put forward, including versioning, API documentation, and SSL offloading.


Cloudify is an open source cloud orchestration framework. Cloudify allows you to model applications and services and automate their entire life cycle, including deployment on any cloud or data center environment, monitoring all aspects of the deployed application, detecting issues and failure, manually or automatically remediating them and handle on going maintenance tasks.

Your application in its entirety (Infrastructure, Middleware, Application Code, Scripts, Tool Configuration, Metrics and Logs) can be described in a Blueprint. Written in a human readable YAML format, a blueprint allows for high granularity of configuration of your application. You can define the complete lifecycle of each part of your application in a blueprint. Cloudify can deploy your application and manage it by utilizing the tools of your choice.

Cloudify’s custom workflows make it simple to change your application’s structure. Cloudify provides metrics and log collection capabilities to stream data to Cloudify so that you can act upon it. Data aggregation and visualization within Cloudify will allow you to execute the different workflows so that either you or Cloudify itself can make smart, actionable decisions based on business/application KPIs. Those decisions can either manually or automatically trigger workflows (such as scaling or healing) on the tactical front; or as application behavior analysis on the strategic front.
