About this Episode

In today’s world of platforms, services are increasingly connected. In the past, platform as a service offerings were pretty much isolated. It’s that new connected infrastructure that is driving the growth of Cloud Foundry, the open source, service oriented platform technology.

Sam Ramji is CEO of Cloud Foundry, which is holding its European event in Frankfurt this week. At the conference, Ramji sat down with Alex Williams, founder of The New Stack, to discuss, among other topics:

Europe’s adoption of platform technologies.
IoT and the connection to serverless technologies.
The maturity of the container ecosystem and the corollary to Cloud Foundry.

Cloud Foundry BOSH, the open source tool for release engineering, deployment, lifecycle management, and monitoring of distributed systems.
The open source community’s collaboration across competing services.
