About this Episode

In this episode of The New Stack Makers, Benjamin Ball, Technical Editor and Producer at The New Stack, talks with Chip Childers, Chief Technology Officer at the Cloud Foundry Foundation. The conversation begins with an introduction to Cloud Foundry Foundation and the principles of cloud native platforms.

In discussing the architecture and implementation of cloud native principles, we outline the differences between Platform as a Service (PaaS) and Containers as a Service (CaaS) solutions, including their technical capabilities, market segmentation and use cases. We also talk about what they expect to see from container-focused users in the near future. We wrap up with a brief conversation about Cloud Foundry’s service broker API, their role in industrial Internet of Things use cases, and the Cloud Foundry Silicon Valley Summit in June, 2017.
