What is Cloud Foundry?

Cloud Foundry ensures that the build and deploy aspects of coding remain carefully coordinated with any attached services — resulting in quick, consistent and reliable iterating of applications.

Three deployment options

Cloud Foundry Public

Run your cloud-native app using Cloud Foundry for simple stand-up and powerful scaling and traffic management. Consumption is by hour and changes dynamically based on usage.

Cloud Foundry Enterprise Environment

A self-service, on-demand provisioned single-tenant PaaS environment, providing elastic consumption and complete access to administrative capabilities.

Cloud Foundry Private

A Cloud Foundry platform that runs in your data center on your infrastructure.

Cloud Foundry Enterprise Environment

Enterprises can now run Cloud Foundry in a public isolated environment, while natively integrating with other IBM Cloud™ services, such as AI, blockchain, IoT and data tools.

Cloud Foundry Enterprise Environment (CFEE) runs on a Kubernetes service, which reduces complexity by giving development teams a comprehensive set of familiar tools under one management umbrella. CFEE allows IT organizations to safeguard their existing investment in Cloud Foundry, while seamlessly bringing in new skill sets that will lead to building apps that provide contemporary customer experiences.
