Meet the Photon Platform BOSH CPI

by March 31, 2016

Today, we’re excited to continue addressing the needs of developers by announcing the release of the Photon Platform BOSH CPI. We’re building upon the recent release of v0.8 of Photon Controller: a distributed, multi-tenant and elastic platform purposefully-built for modern applications.
BOSH was designed to address the challenges in building both small and large distributed system. A BOSH CPI, or Cloud Provider Interface, is an API that is used to interact with an underlying IaaS to create and manage objects on an infrastructure, including images, VMs and disks.

Today’s guest post is from Iwasaki Yudai, research engineer at NTT Laboratory Software Innovation Center and Du Jun and Zhang Lei from the Cloud Team, Software Engineering Laboratory, Zhejiang University, China (ZJU-SST).
Cloud Foundry is the leading open source PaaS offering with a fast growing ecosystem and strong enterprise demand. One of its advantages which attracts many developers is its consistent model for deploying and running applications across multiple clouds such as AWS, VSphere and OpenStack. The approach provides cloud adopters with more choices and flexibilities.
