Fairly soon after Cloud Foundry was created, projects like IronFoundry sprang up to provide support for .NET applications in Cloud Foundry. Since those initial attempts to provide .NET support for Cloud Foundry, many things have changed in the Cloud Foundry environment. The Cloud Foundry APIs were rewritten and the Diego Project revamped the way applications are run in Cloud Foundry. Great changes provide great opportunities and so Pivotal, CenturyLink and the IronFoundry teams got together and decided to make .NET applications into a first class citizens in Cloud Foundry. They have provided the code necessary to do this as additional, open-source repositories that are in the process of being merged into the mainline codebase of Cloud Foundry. You can read more about those efforts at the Pivotal Blog.
This means that we should soon start seeing enterprise distributions of Cloud Foundry that provide consistent support for .NET applications running on Windows servers along with other languages that traditionally run well on Linux based containers. All on your choice of and portability between private, semi-private, or public Infrastructure as a Service providers.
I, for one, cannot wait. :)
