Cloud Foundry Summit Pancake Breakfast Podcast: Containerizing Cloud Foundry
For this latest edition of The New Stack Analysts, we took our pancakes and our podcast equipment to Boston, for the Cloud Foundry Summit, for a wide-ranging discussion on Cloud Foundry, cloud-native computing and Kubernetes.
- Frederic Lardinois, reporter for TechCrunch.
- Abby Kearns, executive director for Cloud Foundry Foundation.
- Chen Goldberg, engineering director for Google.
- Jennifer Kotzen, senior product manager for SUSE.
Much of the discussion revolved around how to integrate Cloud Foundry, a platform to ease the process of enterprise development, with a container-based architecture, perhaps one managed by the Kubernetes open source container orchestration engine. That week, Cloud Foundry had certified SUSE’s Cloud Application Platform as an official Cloud Foundry platform, the first of which is delivered in containers.
“Software has to evolve,” Goldberg said, adding that, with all of the technologies Google uses, “Our goal is to think about all of those environments in a consistent way that allows to have the velocity.”
