The Cloud Foundry Foundation kicked off its virtual Cloud Foundry European Summit today, with announcements from Alibaba, anynines, Atos, EngineerBetter, evoila, HCL, Mendix, MinIO, SAP, Stark & Wayne, SUSE, and VMware.
The announcements reinforce the powerful developer experience on Kubernetes enabled by Cloud Foundry.
The EU Summit, which takes place today and tomorrow on Central European Time, delivers a ‘high-energy format’ with abbreviated sessions tailored to the virtual experience, along with a renewed focus on collaboration and community engagement.
Three tracks are devoted to project contributors, developers, and those new to Cloud Foundry. Special events include Hands-On Labs, Community Awards, Project Office Hours, and the Diversity Conversation, as well as Game Night, themed activity breaks, and digital booths sponsored by vendors for attendees to explore.
Alibaba announced Cloud Lakehouse, the next-generation analytics architecture that can deliver data-based values and intelligence through cross-platform computing, intelligent cache, hot/cold data separation, storage improvement and performance acceleration.
anynines announced the extension of a9s PaaS, the public Cloud Foundry platform operated since 2013 which comes with integrated data services for Cloud Foundry.
Atos announced that the certified Atos Cloud Foundry Platform has been enriched with the adoption and on-boarding of the different flavors of Eirini, Quarks and KubeCF.
SUSE announced SUSE Cloud Application Platform 2.1, the latest version of SUSE’s modern application platform for Kubernetes, is now available.
Cloud Foundry Foundation separately announced major updates to three of its most critical projects: cf-for-k8s, KubeCF, and Stratos are each rolling out new features that underscore the unification of Cloud Foundry and Kubernetes to simplify cloud native software development.
