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.

Bringing VMs (virtual machines) onto the cloud has become increasingly popular. Recent years have seen great advancements in both cloud computing and virtualization. On one hand there is the ability to pool various resources to provide software-as-a-service, infrastructure-as-a-service and platform-as-a-service. At its most basic, this is what describes cloud computing. On the other hand, we have virtual machines that provide agility, flexibility, and scalability to the cloud resources by allowing the vendors to copy, move, and manipulate their VMs at will.
