On Tuesday was the official launch day of the Cloud Foundry Foundation. Over 40 companies support_ _the CF Foundation and we are proud to be one of them.
As we sat down in early 2013 to brainstorm about a name for our new hosting product – now known as anynines – none of us had an idea where our journey would lead us.
Our vision was to use an Open Source software as the basis for a safe and simple hosting service in Europe, where users have as little effort as possible deploying their apps.
Cloud Foundry was our first choice. Now, nearly two years later, we have established a PaaS solution for Europe with anynines, which enables developers to host their apps safely and in a time-saving way. In this time we have met with Cloud Foundry enthusiasts at many conferences in Europe and the United States. And we’re incredibly grateful for the community of developers and administrators around Cloud Foundry, who continue to give our team advice and technical support, just because they were fascinated by our solution. Thank you guys! You’re awesome!

Cloud Foundry provides an easy to use command line interface and a strong architecture to connect our custom software tools around the platform. These technical features were a decisive factor in our choice to use Cloud Foundry to build anynines.
BOSH forms a very good infrastructure automation tool enabling many new and innovative usage scenarios for managing our OpenStack installation and services.
Last but not least, we love the platform and IaaS independent architecture of the whole Cloud Foundry stack. Even if underlying systems change, we will be able to adjust Cloud Foundry to fit new requirements and challenges. We believe in Cloud Foundry as the new industry standard PaaS.
You will often find me talking about Cloud Foundry at conferences, both on and off stage:
The Cloud Foundry Foundation’s mission is to establish and sustain Cloud Foundry as the global industry standard open source PaaS technology with a thriving ecosystem. CFF aims to deliver continuous quality, value and innovation to users, operators and providers of Cloud Foundry technology.
Cloud Foundry is the basis on which we could build our vision. By joining the Cloud Foundry Foundation this base will be strengthened and we are delighted to be part of this community. To help the Foundation on their way, we will continue to support Cloud Foundry.
