Hands-on Labs: SHIELDing Data in Your Cloud Foundry Apps
Rare is the application that operates sans data. With Cloud Foundry, we have the best story in the world for reacting to loss of an app: cf push. We also have an amazingly powerful system of getting access to data services: cf marketplace. Wouldn’t it be great if we had a similar facility for protecting the data in those services, used by those apps? We do! It’s called cf protect.
In this lab, James Hunt of Stark & Wayne will guide you through the deployment of a simple data-backed to-do application and its backing database. Then the fun begins. After configuring data protection using cf protect and SHIELD Cloud, we role-play both logical and physical data loss scenarios and work through the response and recovery procedures.
Learn how to keep your data safe from harm, while still enjoying all the benefits of Cloud Foundry!
