Diego-release for Docker Containers at Scale on OpenPOWER

by November 10, 2016

In our earlier blog posts, we have described how to build and deploy Concourse, BOSH and cf-release on OpenPOWER systems, an alternative processor architecture based on IBM POWER systems. In separate performance experiments, we have run up to 10,000 containers in a single IBM POWER system and run workloads such as IBM WebSphere Liberty in Docker containers with better price performance on IBM POWER systems.
In this post, we are describing how to build and deploy Cloud Foundry with Diego, for running Docker containers, as a BOSH release on OpenStack on OpenPOWER systems. Diego release installation steps with BOSH documented here require OpenPOWER specific binaries to deploy on OpenPOWER. We are providing a base Diego release which contains three OpenPOWER binaries: golang 1.7.

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.
