With Cloud Foundry, cloud computing is as easy as dropping your appplication's .war files and database files into a Cloud Foundry-managed container running on Amazon EC2.
Select from best practice topologies at deployment time; from a single EC2 instance, to high availability multiple load-balanced instances in different availability zones and a master-slave database.
Cloud Foundry supports the Apache, Tomcat and MySQL stack. It configures MySQL for master/slave replication and uses Apache to load balance across one or more Tomcat servers.
The Cloud Foundry management console provides an intuitive user interface for uploading your application and deploying it on EC2. From the console, you can manage your appliation and monitor it's health.
Cloud Foundry can execute your scripts to install and configure additional software. Whats more, even though Cloud Foundry manages your instances you still have full root access to them.
Start, stop, clone, and upgrade your cluster and view log files with the push of a button.
Cloud Foundry monitors all the elements of your application. It automatically restarts failed servers and instances and autoscales your application as the load fluctuates.
Cloud Foundry is a hosted commercial spin-off of the open source Cloud Tools project. See http://code.google.com/p/cloudtools.
