Hengtian Joins VMware Cloud Foundry Community

The “SpringOne China” conference took place in Beijing in early December, 2012. At the conference, VMware announced the founding of China Cloud Foundry Community. Hengtian joined the community as an invited member, and is hence responsible for the research and development in the financial cloud computing arena.

The Cloud Foundry Community is an eco system initiated by VWmare for its partners. Its members include universities, internet and software companies, as well as IDC hosts. Being an important component of the cloud platform, its goal is to help and support the partners in their development in cloud computing by accumulating and sharing the experience in building and managing PaaS platform. So far this community has attracted 20 partners including Alibaba, Grand Cloud and Sina.

Hengtian’s newly gained membership in the Cloud Foundry Community shows that Hengtian’s endeavor in financial cloud computing has gained recognition. In return, this community would provide Hengtian with a professional international platform in research and development in cloud computing.
