Cloud Foundry Foundation Expands Summit Series to Advance Open Source Cloud Native Application Platform Adoption in Asia Pacific

SAN FRANCISCO, CA and SHANGHAI, CHINA--(Marketwired - Sep 8, 2015) - Cloud Foundry Foundation, home of the leading open source cloud native application platform, today announced its first Asia Pacific Summit, December 2-3, 2015 in Shanghai. The event is part of a series of international Cloud Foundry Summits that kicks off with a European Summit, November 2-3 in Berlin.

"We've seen massive Cloud Foundry adoption across the Asia Pacific region ranging from Baidu to Telstra and from Huawei to NTT to Fujitsu," said Cloud Foundry CEO Sam Ramji. "The Summit is an opportunity for the community to collaborate with others working on the project and learn how experts around the world are deploying the platform."

Registration and a speakers' call for papers are both open for the Shanghai event. Hundreds of application developers, IT operations experts, technical managers, business leaders, service providers and project contributors are expected to attend. Similar to this spring's Cloud Foundry Summit North America, which hosted a standing-room only crowd, Summit attendees in Shanghai will collaborate with peers, gain first hand access to Cloud Foundry roadmaps, training and tutorials; and see how companies like Anchora, Fujitsu, Huawei, NTT and Toshiba are using Cloud Foundry to support continuous innovation, unleash developers and deliver application portability. Attendees will leave with a clear understanding of microservices, containers, and cloud native application platforms, and how to apply these to the needs of their own businesses.

Keynote speakers and the conference schedule will be announced in November. For more information about Cloud Foundry Summit Asia Pacific including sponsorship opportunities visit http://shanghai2015.cfsummit.com/.
