SAN FRANCISCO, May 6, 2015 – Cloud Foundry Foundation, home of the leading open source cloud-native application platform, today announced that software analytics company New Relic, Inc. (NYSE:NEWR) is joining the independent organization. As a result, Cloud Foundry users can now take advantage of the New Relic Software Analytics Platform to build modern software.
“New Relic is proud to join the Cloud Foundry Foundation and continue our longstanding effort to bring software analytics to this community of innovators,” said John Gray, New Relic SVP of business development. “We believe the future of software development is service-oriented, where IT orchestrates services like Cloud Foundry to enable elastic, flexible architectures to meet business demands.”
New Relic has a rich history of supporting open source communities, including its work with the Drupal Association and Python Software Foundation. The Cloud Foundry platform is already used by a growing number of New Relic customers and partners, including Pivotal (Pivotal Cloud Foundry and Pivotal Web Services), IBM Bluemix and HP Helion. As a member of the Cloud Foundry Foundation, New Relic will contribute a tile, service broker, and build pack with the goal of easing the development of applications on Cloud Foundry and enabling the success of these applications without dedicated monitoring infrastructure.
“The applications that enterprises are developing on Cloud Foundry often represent the next generation of digital experiences,” said Cloud Foundry CEO Sam Ramji. “Cloud Foundry makes it easy for software teams to build and iterate new services with ease. New Relic gives these teams the data they need to iterate on an application’s success. We’re excited to have them on board.”
New Relic and other members will join Cloud Foundry Foundation at the Cloud Foundry Summit, on May 11-12, in Santa Clara, Calif. The event is expected to bring together more than 1,500 application developers, IT operations experts, technical managers, business leaders, service providers and project contributors in an independent forum to accelerate and advance the Cloud Foundry open source project and help the community set its agenda for the year.
