SAP BTP, Cloud Foundry environment is an open Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) targeted at microservice development and orchestration.
The Cloud Foundry environment allows you to create polyglot cloud applications in Cloud Foundry.
It contains the SAP BTP, Cloud Foundry runtime service, which is based on the open-source application platform managed by the Cloud Foundry Foundation.
Cloud Foundry makes it faster and easier to build, test, deploy, and scale applications, providing a choice of the underlying infrastructure (including Kubernetes), developer frameworks, and application services.
Cloud Foundry allows your organization to focus on the applications, not the platform.
It removes the cost and complexity associated with configuring, managing, and securing infrastructure for your applications.
Cloud Foundry has significant benefits to developers and organizations:
- Language independent
choose any language runtime, and add new languages as needed
- Admin separation
administrators and developers can work in parallel
- Standard Command Line Interface
the same CLI is used by all CF providers, not just SAP
- Open Source
contributions by many companies, updates and new features are faster
