Interesting question, I am very familiar with the vFabric Suite, as I used to work for a team that supported the monitoring and management part of the solution. The answer is yes, vFabric is a  PaaS solution. The target market is cloud based web services and the components can be sold separately or work in conjunction as a suite (hence the name vFabric when branded with VMware). When VMware dissolved SpringSource most of the components of this suite became part of Pivotal, except for Hyperic, which remains part of VMware's cloud management solution.

vFabric Suite was meant to run on virtual environments and could only run on VMware. It was the branded PaaS for VMware/EMC cloud solutions. However, it was primarily an open source solution at it's core and could run on other web services or physical when sold stand alone.  When it was spun out to Pivotal along with GreenPlum and Pivotal Labs they were able to truly realize their roots again in open source and now are supported on several web services, for example ec2.

Cloud Foundry is the open source version of these technologies for web services. This was developed at VMware but realizes it's true ability as part of Pivotal.

That was a long answer to your short question. I hope it helped.
