Cloud Foundry Service Marketplace - Layne Peng, EMC & Junwei Liu, CMST
Please join us as we leverage third-party cloud, like OpenStack to power services for Cloud Foundry applications! Cloud Foundry will provide services such as MySQL by default, but managed as external services. In a traditional deployment, CF would deploy a MySQL cluster via BOSH and would “create DATABASE” for each service instance (which can lead to fairly complex environments). This session will share our experience of how to offer services by leverging efforts from self-host IaaS cloud, public cloud, or even individual contributors to reduce service sprawl and deliver the benefit of tighter integration.

On Building a Highly Available Cloud Foundry PostgreSQL Service - Xiujiao Gao and Wayne E. Seguin, Stark & Wayne
In this talk we cover how in just four months for our client, GE, we built an Open Source Highly Available PostgreSQL CF Service by utilizing various open source technologies together with custom daemons and deployed the end product as a BOSH release via Concourse Pipelines (Release & Deployment). We describe the architecture: the open source technologies used (and why we choose them), custom daemons, and pipelines. We also cover unique challenges we faced when building the desired features of this PostgreSQL service, features such as: CF SB Integration, High Availability, Fault Tolerance, Self Healing, Disaster Recovery, Multi-Data Center(AZ), Scaling Up and Scaling Out. Additionally, we will cover challenges which only revealed themselves under load within production and never within the confines of the release and development pipelines.

MSA, CF and Gaming - Younjin Jeong, Pivotal
Today's gaming industry is focusing on mobile, global, and handling massive number of users. There're number of requests from various clients via HTTP/s. MSA is very common in gaming architectures, and server-client communications are rely on HTTP. Cloud, HTTP, MSA are perfect fit to gaming, and Cloud Foundry could be a good platform to gaming industry who wants CSP free go-global. This session introduces how CF could be used for gaming industry.

What CF is for Apps, is X for Backing Services - Julian Fischer, anynines
The Cloud Foundry runtime implements cloud requirements for applications such as waste reduction through automation, scalability, on-demand self-service and self-healing. After experiencing the comfort of deploying apps to the CF runtime, the logical next step is to ask for the implementation of these cloud features for Cloud Foundry backing services, e.g. MySQL, MongoDB, Redis, etc.

In this talk you will see a draft of an ideal Cloud Foundry service framework. Furthermore you will learn about technical realization challenges and receive an overview of possible architectural approaches.

A scoped implementation example will be presented demonstrating the use of Bosh as the deployment-backend for self-provisioning Cloud Foundry services and see how cf create-service rolls out highly available MongoDB clusters.

A Telecom Use Case with Cloud Foundry Deployment – An Analysis - Krishna Kumar and Dhilip Kumar, Huawei
Magento Community Edition is open source eCommerce software used to power hundreds of thousands of online stores. One of the telecom use case, a customized Maegento is used for mobile online stores with high end data traffic in Huawei. The Redis service is used for caching and persistence in this deployment. This presentation will look how such an Application can be moved to Cloud Foundry and leverage its features to enhance the performance overall. This real time user solution deployment with cloud foundry can be a case study for template for future adoption at various customer base. The presentation will discuss various scenarios explored and the best model selected for it.
The contents in the presentation includes:
Huawei use case for this app for telecom ecommerce
What are the issues considering moving this app to CF
The migration scenario with DEMO

Automating Everything via a Concourse Pipeline - Kimberly Johnson, Pivotal & Mark DeLillo, Pivotal
Pivotal Network (network.pivotal.io) is a Rails application that allows users to download PCF and Pivotal Data products. PivNet’s acceptance, staging, and production environments are currently running on Cloud Foundry.

The PivNet team has recently automated our builds, database backups, service integrations, smoke tests, and deployments using Concourse. This level of automation has enabled the team to move more quickly while delivering features to our customers, and has drastically reduced the amount of time spent on these processes.

Concourse has added reliability and stability to all of these processes while providing the team with a dashboard to see and better understand the exact state of each environment.

This talk will include an overview of how we achieved one-button, daily deployments to production via Concourse, as well as tips and tricks we learned along the way.
