Cloud Foundry: Inside a Private PaaS by Trotter Cashion
Cloud Foundry is an open source platform as a service. Think of it as an open source Heroku that you can run inside your ownfirewall. In this talk, we’ll cover why it’s essential to the enterprise (and many small businesses as well), how you can use it,and most interestingly, how it’s implemented. You’ll learn a lot about PaaS and a lot about how to build a robust distributed system.
