Jared Wray will join the Cloud Foundry Foundation as the first Technical Fellow as part of the organization’s recently launched Fellowship program. Mr. Wray founded Tier 3, a Seattle-based infrastructure as a service (IaaS) platform company, acquired by CenturyLink in 2013.

“Jared is an exceptionally well-known member of the Cloud Foundry community, having founded Tier 3. At CenturyLink, they offer AppFog, which is Cloud Foundry certified and was developed prior to Jared leaving,” said Chip Childers, VP of Technology for Cloud Foundry Foundation.

The Cloud Foundry Foundation is an independent non-profit organization formed to sustain the development, promotion and adoption of Cloud Foundry.
