JPMorgan Chase Joins Cloud Foundry Foundation

Global Financial Services Firm Strengthens Commitment to Simple Self Service and Scale for Its Developers and the Developer Community at Large

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - May 14, 2015) - Cloud Foundry Foundation, home of the leading open source cloud native application platform, today announced that JPMorgan Chase & Co. (NYSE: JPM) is joining the organization. By joining the Foundation, the global financial services firm reinforces its commitment to the open Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) movement and supports the firm's developers with the company's own full-featured cloud platform.

"PaaS is a natural progression of our capabilities as we make the transformation into a managed services provider within JPMorgan Chase," said George Sherman, CIO for JPMorgan Chase's Global Technology Infrastructure group. "Efficiency was the goal when we virtualized our bare metal environment. Now we are equally focused on developer productivity and speed-to-market. The Cloud Foundry platform will help us fully equip our developers with the environment and services that they need to work efficiently and we want to share our efforts with the community."

Cloud Foundry, a Linux Foundation Collaborative Project, has been developed through the joint effort of more than 1,000 developers who have contributed code to the foundation's projects. The platform is being used in an increasing number of private enterprise deployments, including the one at JPMorgan Chase.

"JPMorgan Chase is known for its focus on technology excellence and innovation as a way to stay ahead in the highly competitive financial services market," said Cloud Foundry Foundation CEO Sam Ramji. "Joining the Foundation strengthens our community with an engaged end user perspective that will help us prioritize development and further our high standards for applications services delivery."
