Cloud Foundry at VMware

comment Choosing between cloud (Cloudfoundry ) and virtual servers - for developers
To make a distinction, the original post asked about Cloud Foundry, which is a Platform as a Service. This sits atop Infrastructure as a Service, which deals with VMs, disk, operating systems, and so on. A PaaS abstracts infrastructure details away from developers, where the goal is to simply push an app to a PaaS, bind any services (MySQL, Redis), and scale out instances of the app as needed.
