Cloud Foundry, the Open Platform as a Service
Wednesday, October 3, 2012 from 3:00 PM to 5:30 PM
This talk will provide an overview of the PaaS (Platform as a Service) landscape, and will describe the Cloud Foundry open source PaaS, with its multi-framework, multi-service, multi-cloud model.
But other Cloud providers such as AppFog and Tier3 have extended Cloud Foundry to let developers deploy applications using other language and frameworks like PHP, Python and .NET.
It can be used as a public PaaS on CloudFoundry.com and other service providers (ActiveState, AppFog), to create your own private cloud, or on your laptop using the Micro Cloud Foundry VM.
Cloud Foundry BOSH is an open source tool chain for release engineering, deployment and lifecycle management of large scale distributed services.
BOSH is the system VMware is using to manage CloudFoundry.com, the Cloud Foundry based service operated by VMware, on several thousand VMs, with 40+ unique node types, 75+ unique software packages, 2x/week updates and 24x7x365 non-stop operation.
BOSH is infrastructure independent, and can be used to deploy Cloud Foundry on top of Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) products such as VMware vSphere, Amazon Web Services, or OpenStack.
I will describe the Cloud Foundry architecture, talk about how to use Cloud Foundry BOSH to deploy Cloud Foundry by yourself, and talk about the open source development process for Cloud Foundry.
I will also discuss opportunities and risks for developers to move their apps to the Cloud, new skills to learn, and old habits to forget.
In this talk you should learn how to use Cloud Foundry to get more agile and boost your development productivity:
* Learn how to deploy your applications on both the public and micro Cloud Foundry
* Spring, Java, Ruby, Node.js, Python, PHP and other Cloud application development tips
* MySQL, MongoDB, Redis, Postgres, and RabbitMQ: Learn how to use these services on Cloud Foundry
* Build your in-house Platform-as-a-Service using open-source Cloud Foundry
