Here are some of the recent and upcoming activities and exciting happenings in the world of Bluemix Cloud Foundry.

Cloud Foundry Certification 2017

2016 was a great year for the IBM Bluemix cloud platform: fantastic growth, constant innovation and investment, and extensive adoption by world class organizations, both large and small. IBM Bluemix Cloud Foundry has been a big part of that success, IBM is the largest Cloud Foundry installation in the world. Building on that momentum, IBM is especially proud to earn the Cloud Foundry Foundation 2017 PaaS Certification. This certification program is essential in helping customers make informed decisions regarding their investment in PaaS, ensures application portability across the broad range of Cloud Foundry community offering members, and fosters the building of cloud native platforms for developing and deploying enterprise cloud applications.
