Cloud Foundry Enterprise EnvironmentJason McGee, vice president and chief technology officer for IBM Cloud Platform, appeared on an Enterprise Times podcast this week to discuss IBM Cloud Foundry Enterprise Environment, among other topics.

McGee called Enterprise Environment “an isolated and fully dedicated version of Cloud Foundry in the public cloud” and an evolution of the existing offering.

The Enterprise Times explains further: It’s “an isolated version that allows customers to blend the best of public and private Cloud Foundry. This is about speeding up the provisioning of Cloud Foundry instances. It is fully elastic, priced by the hour and can be deployed through a self-service portal.”

McGee also discussed the Eirini project, which will enable companies to plug Kubernetes into their Cloud Foundry deployments.
