Comparing Cloud Foundry vs OpenStack is like comparing apples to oranges. Because your business is unique and nobody except you can decide, which is better for your company. But we can add some fun to your research and suggest some new comparison parameters.

Let's start with videos. We think that OpenStack has better video than Cloud Foundry



Ok, now let's compare the UI. Looks like Cloud Foundry has more user-friendly interface than OpenStack because it's bigger. At least on our screenshots


To compare the popularity of the solutions we counted how many alternatives people search for each of them on the Internet. And it turns out that OpenStack is more popular than Cloud Foundry

Now let's look at the recent activities of our competitors:

- Cloud Foundry adds native Kubernetes support (in 2017)
- Rackspace offers ready-to-use Openstack private clouds (in 2016)
- Google is joining OpenStack (in 2015)
- VMware integrates its cloud management tools with OpenStack (in 2014)
- Surprise! VMWare has joined OpenStack (in 2012)
- OpenStack - is like the Soviet Union. Who develops OpenStack? (in 2012)
- OpenStack launches. CloudStack departs. Amazon adapts SAP. Azure rebrands (in 2012)
- Amazon - gets closer to Windows, OpenStack - closer to Linux (in 2012)
- SaaS vendors using third-party PaaS as their own (in 2011)
- HP and Dell support OpenStack (in 2011)

Looks like OpenStack was recently more active than Cloud Foundry (at least in our news).
