Cloud Foundry and MongoDB: A Marriage Made in Heaven

Patrick Chanezon, VMWare

December 9 2011

This talk will provide an overview of the PaaS (Platform as a Service) landscape, and will describe the Cloud Foundry open source PaaS, with its multi-framework, multi-service, multi-cloud model. Cloud Foundry allows developers to provision apps in Java/Spring, Ruby/Rails, Ruby/Sinatra, Javascript/Node, and leverage services like MySQL, MongoDB, Reddis, Postgres and RabbitMQ. It can be used as a public PaaS on CloudFoundry.com and other service providers (ActiveState, AppFog), to create your own private cloud, or on your laptop using the Micro Cloud Foundry VM. Micro Cloud Foundry is a very easy way for developers to start working on their application using their framework of choice and MongoDB, without the need to setup a development environment, and your app is one command line away (vmc push) from deployment to cloudfoundry.com.
