Mendix Announces Cloud Foundry Support

High-Productivity aPaaS Leader to become Cloud Foundry Contributor and Sponsor the Cloud Foundry Summit

SAN FRANCISCO – June 10, 2014 Mendix, the enterprise application Platform-as-a-Service (aPaaS) company, today announced its support for the Cloud Foundry™ platform, the open source project that is quickly becoming the single API standard for inter-cloud application deployment. In addition to actively helping to evolve the open standard, Mendix will integrate Cloud Foundry’s interoperable Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) framework with Mendix’s high-productivity, model-driven aPaaS, providing greater flexibility and choice across cloud providers.

Faced with growing business demand for custom cloud applications, enterprises are adopting the Mendix App Platform to build, deploy and manage multi-channel applications in a radically faster, easier and more cost-effective manner. The company’s support for Cloud Foundry makes Mendix’s high-productivity and model-driven platform directly available to a fast-growing ecosystem of global cloud providers that are quickly standardizing on Cloud Foundry. In addition, Cloud Foundry enterprise users can easily use Mendix on top of their Cloud Foundry implementations. Support for Cloud Foundry also enables Mendix customers to more seamlessly integrate with third-party and private cloud stacks, allowing them to deploy their apps virtually anywhere, and better leverage current and future investments.

Solidifying its support for Cloud Foundry, Mendix has become a Cloud Foundry contributor, joining dozens of leading organizations who are actively participating in the open source project. The company is committed to helping evolve the open standard through the contribution of shared resources and innovation to the Cloud Foundry community.

“With Cloud Foundry quickly becoming the de facto open source standard for foundational PaaS, we are putting our full support behind the project,” said Johan den Haan, CTO at Mendix. “By integrating with Cloud Foundry, we will offer our customers and partners an open platform for seamless, multi-cloud deployment, allowing them to focus on building applications that meet their business needs.”
