Presentation: Tweet"Extending CloudFoundry with new Services"
CloudFoundry ships with a large number of services that you can bind to your applications very easily such as PostgreSQL, Redis and RabbitMQ.
But what happens if you need to use a service that CloudFoundry doesn't support? We want the speed and flexibility of using vmc to create and bind new service instances but often using an existing Chef cookbook or Puppet manifest to provision a service outside the PaaS (with the loss of functionality that entails) seems like the easier route.
In this talk we walk through extending CloudFoundry with your own services, including how to allow for customisation at deployment time, and common concerns such as security and user quotas. We'll walk through an example taking a vanilla binary from the upstream vendor distribution and each of the steps necessary to make it a fully integrated CloudFoundry service.Download slides
