Cloud Infrastructure components are here to fail, while your service – in our case cloud foundry as a platform running your workload – is here to stay available and keep the hosted applications alive. How do you stay available, while whole clouds are going down, either for maintenance or due to failure?

At Swisscom we think that cloud infrastructure should be kept as simple as possible, meaning that it is here to deliver a platform that enables rapid deployment of cloud-native workload, without lots of complexity.

In the end users would like that the platform to deploy and run their applications should stay alive and keep running their applications without interruptions.

To keep that promise while having individual parts (in our case whole stacks) failing, we didn’t delegate this problem to the infrastructure, but rather took it to the application level, meaning Cloud Foundry.
