Enterprise Computing 
VANCOUVER, BC -- (Marketwired) -- 02/24/14 --   ActiveState today
announced that it will join EMC, IBM, HP, Pivotal, Rackspace, SAP,
VMware and CenturyLink to structure an independent non-profit
organization known as the Cloud Foundry foundation with an open
governance model. The foundation will be dedicated to the evolution
and growth of the Cloud Foundry open source project as well as the
ecosystem and community around it. Cloud Foundry is licensed under
the Apache License 2.0, which has already enabled multiple major
companies and more than 750 individual contributors to contribute to
the project. The project will be retaining this license as it
transitions to a formal governance model. ActiveState will join the
foundation as a Gold level founding sponsor. 
"ActiveState has had great success with Stackato(R) (based on Cloud
Foundry)," commented Bart Copeland, President and CEO at ActiveState.
"Stackato equips enterprises with greater agility, empowers
innovation through a quick cloud deployment process and puts the
security of enterprises' information assets first, with our
customer-inspired DevOps dashboard and real-time social monitoring
tools." 
"We look forward to contributing along with the other partners to
help ensure that Cloud Foundry remains the open PaaS standard in the
future. Cloud Foundry is already arguably the de facto open PaaS
standard and we are extremely excited that this new Cloud Foundry
foundation will be governing the project moving forward," added
Copeland.
