Concourse is a highly versatile continuous-thing-doer.
At mimacom, we use Concourse a lot to automate Cloud Foundry deployments and naturally, when there is Cloud Foundry there is also BOSH as underlying deployment automation.
Concourse has different deployment options, of which one is a BOSH deployment.
In this blog post we will walk through how to prepare and setup a Concourse BOSH deployment.
One of the coolest facets of Kubernetes is the declarative deployment descriptors. You describe what the system
should look like and Kubernetes makes it happen.
One of the worst facets of Kubernetes is the declarative deployment descriptors... A typical system constructed of
micro-services will consist of dozens of configuration files, most of which will be virtually identical to all others.
This post will explain how to manage these configuration files in a DRY (do not repeat yourself) way using Helm.
Versioning components and instantiating the appropriate version dynamically is not only possible but also has some use cases. Check this post where I explain how to accomplish that using a ComponentFactoryResolver and structural directives.
We planned to upgraded a PCF installation from 1.9 to 1.12 in less than 72 hours.
During the upgrade we learned a lot.
In this blog post it is described what you can learn and which tools we suggest.
In addition, you can learn from our challanges during the upgrade with several redis nodes and the new relic service broker.
The aim of this entry is to provide some basic ideas for using Kubernetes to deploy a small microservices-based application.
