If you wanted to learn more about the Cloud Foundry technology as well as SAP’s involvement in it, you may want to check out the upcoming Cloud Foundry Summit in Santa Clara, California (details below).
SAP HANA Cloud Platform leverages Cloud Foundry technology in several ways. By utilizing Cloud Foundry, users of SAP HANA Cloud Platform can rapidly develop, deploy, manage and scale their applications throughout their lifecycle. Cloud Foundry technology simplifies extending the SAP HANA Cloud Platform with new community innovations of application services and language runtimes. Another advantage of Cloud Foundry technology is in making it easier to deploy SAP HANA Cloud Platform on different Cloud infrastructures.
SAP is one of the founding Platinum level members of the Cloud Foundry Foundation. SAP is also a Gold level sponsor of the Cloud Foundry Summit event scheduled for May 23 – 25, 2016, in Santa Clara, CA, USA. By attending this event, you can learn about the ongoing innovations in the Cloud Foundry technology and its increasing adoption in the industry.
SAP speakers plan to present the following technical sessions at the Summit:
- Will it Run on “My” OpenStack? – Building an Executable Validation Testsuite for CPIs
SAP has been leading the Bosh OpenStack CPI project under the Cloud Foundry Foundation. By attending this session, you can learn about some useful tooling developed under this project for validating the readiness of any given OpenStack installation for deploying Cloud Foundry on top of it.
- CF-Abacus: Introduction to the Standard Metering and Aggregation Engine for Cloud Foundry
Features such as billing and metering of usage of services, applications and buildpacks in a Cloud Foundry instance become important in commercial environments. Through this session, you can learn about the background and architecture of the CF-Abacus project, a billing and metering engine, co-developed by SAP and other Cloud Foundry community members.
We encourage you to stop by the SAP booth at the Summit to learn more about SAP’s active engagement in the Cloud Foundry community and how the Cloud Foundry technology in SAP HANA Cloud Platform is being utilized by SAP customers as well as SAP’s own Cloud solutions.
