Piston Cloud Computing has announced a deal with VMware to develop a new project aimed at getting the Cloud Foundry Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) to run on OpenStack. The Cloud Provider Interface (CPI) will be distributed as part of Piston Enterprise OS and, according to the company, will be submitted as an OpenStack incubation project.

VMware launched Cloud Foundry just over a year ago to enable users to run Spring, Grails, Rails, Sinatra or Node.js applications on VMWare vSphere. If the Cloud Provider Interface gains traction, it would enter into direct competition with Red Hat's recently open sourced OpenShift PaaS. Like Red Hat, Piston Cloud Computing is a founding member of the OpenStack Foundation.

Piston has released the code for the CPI, which uses the Cloud Foundry BOSH toolchain, on GitHub under the Apache 2.0 Licence. More information on the project can be found in its README file.
