VMware Cloud Foundry

According to CloudPro VMware has created a new, ultra-simple, open source PaaS called Cloud Foundry.
VMware is squaring up to Salesforce.com and going-it-alone with a new open Platform-as-a-Service designed especially for cloud computing environments. Cloud Foundry is being hailed by VMware as “a new generation” of application platform, delivered as a service from enterprise data centres and public cloud service providers. Essentially, it will give developers streamlined tools to build applications on public and private clouds, whether or not the underlying server runs VMware, in the simplest way possible.

Vision Cloud

The goal of the EU funded VISION Cloud project is to introduce a powerful ICT infrastructure for reliable and effective delivery of data-intensive storage services, facilitating the convergence of ICT, media and telecommunications.This infrastructure will support the setup and deployment of data and storage services on demand, at competitive costs, across disparate administrative domains, while providing QoS (Quality of Service) and security guarantees.
