Microsoft Joins Hot Open Source PaaS Project Cloud Foundry

Microsoft joins the organization as a second-tier gold member, which will cost it $100,000 a year. For its money, it gets to nominate a candidate to possibly fill one of two seats on the foundation’s board of directors and will have a seat on the technology advisory board. This will give Redmond input into the directions future development takes and help assure that its needs for the use of Cloud Foundry with Azure are taken into consideration.
