[14 Jan 2016 | Comments Off on Integrated Deployment Pipeline with Jenkins and Cloud Foundry | ]

This presentation highlights an integrated development process built with Jenkins and Cloud Foundry. We show a continuous delivery lifecycle from source code control (Git) to Jenkins build (Maven and Gradle) to live deployment on Cloud Foundry. We use Jenkins to do a blue/green deploy of an application by deploying two environments, then switch request routing between the two without downtime. The two versions are then load balanced, allowing for testing of the new version and easy replacement or fall back to the existing version.

The Spring Trader application was debuted at SpringOne 2GX in 2012 and presented an application that demonstrates a multitude of Pivotal Application Fabric components working together: tcServer, RabbitMQ, SQLFire and Gemfire.

[15 Dec 2014 | Comments Off on Continuous Delivery with Cloud Foundry | ]

Cloud Foundry dramatically simplifies the work necessary to build deployment pipelines for continuous delivery. In this talk we’ll look at the benefits of building deployment pipelines with Cloud Foundry, some anti-patterns to watch out for, and how you can practice continuous delivery when making changes to the infrastructure code of Cloud Foundry itself.

Data governance and data locality play a huge role in deciding where to deploy your databases. And with the combination of Cloud Foundry and CumuLogic inside the firewall, you can empower your application teams with the agility and operational maintainability to meet enterprise requirements.

Let’s face it, the cloud is here to stay. The cloud’s potential can seem sometimes overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to if you use Spring. Spring – and the various Spring projects – already embrace the architecture characteristics that make for great, cloud-centric applications in any environment. While Spring works well on any cloud platform, it enjoys a special place in the sun on Cloud Foundry, the open source PaaS from Pivotal.

If you have deployed applications on Cloud Foundry, you know how easy it is to push an app, bind services to it, and scale it. There are more magical things behind the scenes. Did you know, for example, that cloudfoundry.com is updated approximately twice a week?

[10 Jun 2013 | Comments Off on Running Standalone Apps on Cloud Foundry | ]

Some applications simply cannot be contained. Perhaps you want to write a worker that periodically polls for updates or performs a maintenance task. Perhaps you would like to use a new lightweight web framework. You don’t necessarily want to build a WAR for these types of apps.

[7 May 2013 | Comments Off on Making Sense out of the Java PaaS Platforms | ]

Java PaaS platforms have been growing like mushrooms, and many Java developers are confused about which one to use and whether Java PaaS makes sense for their applications.

Learn how to scale an Express and Socket.io based chat application that uses Redis as session store and RabbitMQ as PubSub service.

[25 Jan 2013 | Comments Off on True Hybrid Clouds: Extending OpenStack with Cloud Foundry | ]

Learn how the open source Cloud Foundry project is used by Appfog to extend OpenStack to create true hybrid clouds. Inter-cloud connections and workload portability across various instances of OpenStack are explored. Watch demonstrations of how developers can simply create applications in their language of choice, deploy to instances of public OpenStack-based Clouds (i.e. HP Public Cloud, Rackspace, etc.), and easily move workloads from one cloud to another.
