Google joins the Cloud Foundry Foundation

From the beginning, our goal for Google Cloud Platform has been to build the most open cloud for all developers and businesses alike, and make it easy for them to build and run great software. A big part of this is being an active member of the open source community and working directly with developers where they are, whether they’re at an emerging startup or a large enterprise.

Today we're pleased to announce that Google has joined the Cloud Foundry Foundation as a Gold member to further our commitment to these goals.

Building on success

We've done a lot of work with the Cloud Foundry community this year, including the delivery of the BOSH Google CPI release, enabling the deployment of Cloud Foundry on GCP, and the recent release of the Open Service Broker API. These efforts have led to additional development and integration with tools like Google Stackdriver for hybrid monitoring, and custom service brokers for eight of our GCP services:

Collaborating with customers and partners as we’ve worked on these projects made the decision to join the Cloud Foundry Foundation simple. It's an energized community with vast enterprise adoption, and the technical collaboration has been remarkable between the various teams.

What’s next

Joining the Cloud Foundry Foundation allows us to be even more engaged and collaborative with the entire Cloud Foundry ecosystem. And as we enter 2017, we look forward to even more integrations and more innovations between Google, the Cloud Foundry Foundation and our joint communities.
