Cloud Foundry Multi-Cloud Options Keep Multiplying: BOSH CPI Support for OpenStack

Cloud Foundry provides a consistent model for deploying and running applications across multiple clouds. This multi-cloud approach preserves developer choice and flexibility, both today and in the future.

Following on the heels of the BOSH hackathon at the recent OpenStack conference, Piston Cloud today announced plans to distribute and support Cloud Foundry on OpenStack, joining existing BOSH support for vSphere and Amazon Web Services. Piston Cloud will offer this new integrated capability in a future release of Piston Enterprise OS and the new project will be submitted to the OpenStack satellite ecosystem for future consideration as an OpenStack incubation project. Details on the announcement are available in the official press release.

The OpenStack BOSH CPI, like both OpenStack and Cloud Foundry itself, is an open source project under the Apache 2 license. User and developer community contributions are welcomed, and patches can be submitted at https://github.com/piston/openstack-bosh-cpi.

This effort is still in the early stages, but with core Nova team members @0×44 and @(jk0) leading the effort, and @vadimspivak and the Cloud Foundry team on call, rapid progress is expected.

The Piston Cloud project joins other community contributions around Cloud Foundry BOSH including the work being done by Nic Williams of Engine Yard. See his recent blog on his experiences with BOSH, as well as his public talk this Wednesday (May 2, 2012).  Join in on the updates and conversations in the Cloud Foundry BOSH user group.
