A 6-hour course to cover BOSH basics, providing hands-on experience with Cloud Foundry deployment and operation.
Operating a Platform: BOSH and everything else
The BOSH tool chain lies at the heart of many successful Cloud Foundry deployments. It unifies release engineering, deployment, and life-cycle management of small and large-scale cloud software. It now works with many infrastructure providers—including vSphere, Google Cloud Platform, AWS, Azure, and OpenStack. BOSH also has a Cloud Provider Interface (CPI), which allows DevOps engineers to extend it to Apache CloudStack, VirtualBox, or any other cloud provider.
At the Cloud Foundry Summit in Basel, Switzerland, a couple of training courses will be provided to those willing to learn the basics of cloud-native development. One of them is Operating a Platform: BOSH and Everything Else. The training is by Altoros, an active member of the Cloud Foundry community and a Bronze Sponsor of the summit.
The trainers from Altoros will teach you how to deploy and manage the Cloud Foundry platform and data services that power cloud-native applications. The course will provide an operational overview of Cloud Foundry and BOSH clusters, explaining how these can be deployed with the cluster orchestration tool.
The training will be delivered to attendees from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM on Tuesday, October 9, 2018.
Agenda and details
