Atos has announced certification of its Cloud Foundry multi-cloud platform by the Cloud Foundry Foundation. The company actively participates in the industry’s only certification program designed to establish reliable portability across platforms in a multi-vendor, multi-cloud environment. Atos joins a prestigious list of providers certified by the Cloud Foundry Foundation to deliver the leading multi-cloud platform.
Cloud Foundry Certification ensures application and skill portability across any cloud service, or on-premises software product that offers Cloud Foundry. The Cloud Foundry Certified mark is only awarded to products and services that meet the strict technical requirements outlined by the Foundation’s technical governing body. Products called “Cloud Foundry” can only use that designation after meeting Cloud Foundry Certification standards. Products must re-certify every year.
Working closely with the Cloud Foundry Foundation, Atos is now part of a growing number of Cloud Foundry Certified providers alongside major industry peers.
