To celebrate our third birthday we are open sourcing our policy-based control plane, Brooklyn, under the Apache 2.0 license.
You can read all about it in our press release -
We already provide extensive professional open source support and services, actively sponsoring open source projects such as Apache Whirr and jclouds, therefore open sourcing Brooklyn is a logical next step for us.
In terms of the community this means we can now offer a comprehensive open source Application Platform Toolkit (APT) comprising Brooklyn, jclouds and Whirr that makes managing applications especially in a multi-cloud environment a breeze.
William Fellows, VP Research, 451 Group captures what we are trying to achieve in a provocative report published over the weekend PaaSification – use Cloudsoft's Brooklyn to create your own Force.com?
