Ignore the hysteria, Cloud Foundry is just fine
Sure you can do a lot of things with Kubernetes. It’s great, but Cloud Foundry is designed to make “Happy developers,” as Comcast open-source senior director Nithya Ruff put it at the Cloud Foundry Summit.

Cloud Foundry’s audience, as Karl Isenberg, one of its developers, explained on StackOverflow, is “enterprise application devs who want to deploy 12-factor stateless apps using Heroku-style buildpacks.”

Cloud Foundry PaaS undergoes seismic shifts as IT evolves
"Who cares about buzzword bingo?" said an executive director at a major media and entertainment company who requested anonymity. "How does Kubernetes solve my business problems? How does it improve the developer experience? I'm not sure throwing more flour around necessarily creates more bread."

Cloud Foundry Project Eirini Inches the Group Closer to Kubernetes
“A lot of work needs to be done for that but it’s evolving quickly,” Childers said of interoperability tests using Eirini as a bridge between Diego and Kubernetes. He did add that the evolution from Diego to Eirini, if it does occur, will be similar to how Cloud Foundry moved from its DEA architecture system to its Diego architecture system. That involved Diego having to show functional parity to DEA and the necessary production readiness for vendors and organizations to feel comfortable using Diego in place of DEA.

SUSE on Cloud 9 for love-in with OpenStack and Kubernetes
> With the Cloud Application Platform 1.4, SUSE has set its sights on a multi-cloud world laying claim to being the first software distribution to go 100 per cent Kubernetes for Cloud Foundry.
> ...
> The juice comes from Cloud Foundry's Project Eirini, which allows devs to seamlessly switch between Kubernetes or Cloud Foundry Diego as their container scheduler. An organisation already invested in the Kubernetes world therefore does not have to faff around with the Cloud Foundry Application Runtime orchestration. A single scheduler should do the trick.

Cloud Foundry Cult
Owen covers CF Summit Basel:

> “The users we spoke with didn't just see it as a PaaS – it was the underlying philosophy of application delivery and management upon which future developments would be based. The Foundation claims Cloud Foundry saves, on average, 10 weeks of development time and $100,000 per app development cycle. In fact, in its own survey, 92% of users cite cross-platform flexibility as important. If these panelists are gaining such benefits, it's easy to understand why they are so enamored with it.”

Finally, a more coherent IBM story?
‘IBM is pushing their cloud hard than ever before. Even though it is mostly IBM Cloud Private, this is the first time I heard a more consistent hybrid cloud story. They have moved away from OpenStack (completely) and CloudFoundry (for the most part) and building a good hybrid cloud story using Kubernetes. Both he product team and services team seem to be quite excited about the opportunity Kubernetes offers them. Kubernetes on Bare Metal as a service is a step in the right direction. Unlike OpenStack and, to some extent, CloudFoundry, Kubernetes gives IBM a chance to have a more unified story from their infrastructure assets to middleware assets. Their “One Cloud Architecture” push is directed in this direction and helps IBM tell a consistent story across their entire portfolio.’

Meltdown and Spectre underscore the ongoing need for infrastructure automation
"In the Cloud Foundry scenario, these are embodied by BOSH to automate the infrastructure resource, namely VMs, container clusters, virtual storage and networks, configuration and deployment and Concourse for the development pipeline. Together, these enable organizations to rapidly and consistently patch all applications using the PaaS environment.

When should you turn to open source cloud?
'"Cloud Foundry is the standard-bearer for open source PaaS and Kubernetes for container management. NGINX is an open source load balancer that powers over 60% of the top 10,000 websites; AWS use it too. OpenStack is the de facto choice for an open source private cloud," he says.'

GE Digital Pivots Industrial IoT Sales Focus From Platform To IoT Apps -- And Looks To Partners As Sales Engine
Kevin Ichhpurani, executive vice president of global ecosystem and channels at GE Digital, and corporate officer of GE, told CRN during GE’s Minds and Machines conference in San Francisco last week that channel partners will have more success developing and selling applications around IoT, as opposed to grappling with the long and complex sales cycle of the GE Predix IoT platform itself.

IBM Builds Private Cloud Stack With Kubernetes And Containers
This week, Big Blue rolled out its new IBM Cloud Private software platform that is designed to enable enterprises to develop on-premises private cloud environments to accelerate app development and allow for easier movement of workloads between their private clouds and public clouds – not only the IBM Cloud but also those from other vendors. Similarly, IBM is leaning on open and container-based technologies for enhanced integration and portability of workloads. The IBM Cloud Private platform is built on Kubernetes, an open-source technology for container orchestration, and will support both Docker containers and Cloud Foundry framework.

Will Containers Replace Hypervisors? Almost Certainly!
"From my viewpoint, the ship has sailed on hypervisors. It’s now a container world for the next generation of cloud native applications and it’s only a matter of time before we get there. In the meantime, running containers on top of virtualization substrates is a common way to “just get started”, while the underlying technologies get better and better at running containers directly on bare metal. The modern datacenter will be relatively homogeneous, just like the web scale companies who brought us cloud computing. It will host predominantly cloud-native applications which will manage their own resiliency using platforms like Cloud Foundry, and it will be more secure and higher performance, with much greater levels of utilization, than ever before primarily due to the trajectory of containers and their ecosystem."

Cloud Foundry poised to shine in 2016, Chris Talbot
"Based on the articles I wrote and the people I spoke with in 2015, I'd say 2016 is going to be a good one for Cloud Foundry, as well as for PaaS in general. Compared to SaaS and IaaS, PaaS is still quite small, but it's growing."

"IDC predicts that by 2016 there will be an 11 percent shift of IT budget away from traditional in-house IT delivery toward various versions of cloud computing as a new delivery model. By 2017, 35 percent of new applications will use cloud-based continuous delivery, enabled by faster DevOps life cycles to streamline the rollout of new features for faster business innovation."

"Together, the teams were able to reduce deployment times from 14 hours to 14 minutes, facilitated by Pivotal Cloud Foundry’s integration with Jenkins and Gradle build systems. Since this pilot, Pivotal Cloud Foundry has had zero downtime. It is being maintained by just two operators, using their preferred tools: Logstash, DataDog and PagerDuty. Furthermore, it runs in Axel Springer’s chosen datacenter on European soil."

IBM Cloud: it’s the infrastructure, stupid
Little check-in on IBM cloud strategy with OpenStack, Cloud Foundry, and misc.: "Perhaps more importantly IBM was explicitly positioning to the effect that not all workloads are Cloud Native, 12-Factor etc. Enterprise developers are not used to building or running stateless apps."
