Recently heard the news about the launch of VMWare Spring Source Cloud Foundry: an open source “Platform as a Service” (PaaS) which allows easy deployment of applications written using Spring, Rails and other modern frameworks. The open source cloud deployment seems interesting, where you could eventually host spring based applications over cloud. Cloud Foundry is available under the widely adopted Apache License, version 2.0.

The new Cloud Foundry offers more support for languages, cloud deployment vendors and cloud capabilities and is probably  based on there  initial Cloud Foundry offering which was launched some time in 2009.

I have requested for an environment ,by signing up for a beta account.  In future blog, I would post my views on Cloud Foundry. Stay tuned.
