VMware, Ospero Team For New Cloud Foundry Platform; Jason Currill Comments

VMwareVMware, Ospero Ltd. and CloudCredo are partnering to launch a virtual datacenter designed to help European Union-based customers comply with data sovereignty laws.

The Cloud Foundry-based platform-as-a-service system runs on Ospero.vGrid via VMware’s vCloud Director to manage datacenter services setup for storage, networking and security, Ospero said Monday.

Ospero says the platform provides developers with customizable cloud services for deploying applications and uses open data storage technologies such as MySQL and MongoDB.

Developers will also have access to a Cassandra database, Ospero said.

Delivery of a European instance of VMware Cloud Foundry PaaS is intended to prevent data from leaving a customers' home country under data sovereignty laws.

“Our job is to provide elastic, managed, virtual compute and storage for businesses around the world,“ said Jason Currill, Ospero CEO.

“We see enormous growth potential for open source PaaS adoption within organizations and are proud to partner with VMware and OpenCredo,” Currill added.

“We are excited both to be partnering with Ospero to add PaaS to their already innovative portfolio, as well as providing support for Cassandra as part of this initial deployment,“ said Jonas Partner, CloudCredo chief executive.
