Lightning Talk - IBM Bluemix - How an Internal Innovation Project Became the Biggest Cloud Foundry Service in the World - Simon Moser, Sr. Technical Staff Member and Dr. Max, Scientist, Architect, and Engineer, IBM
It's quite a story: in 2012, a bunch of developers in need of a platform where they can quickly push some applications without having to order infrastructure starting playing around with Cloud Foundry. A few years later, this project became commercially known as Bluemix, and with around 1 million users and hundreds of thousands running applications is probably the largest Cloud Foundry certified service in the world today. One reason for its popularity is Bluemix' great service ecosystem - which was fueled by technical contributions from and to the community and therefore serves as a great example how an open source community and a resulting service ecosystem impact each other.

Serverless and Event-driven Applications with Cloud Foundry and OpenWhisk - Andrei Yurkevich, Altoros & Andreas Nauerz, IBM

Cloud Foundry represents a great platform for developing cloud-native apps. OpenWhisk is an open source serverless platform that instantly launches and scales out lightweight microservices and terminates them when they are no longer needed. It can power event-driven apps that can react to user- or machine-generated triggers to address spikes in traffic or requirements, like HA, reliability, and scalability, without the need to keep overcapacities.

In their presentation, Andreas and Andrei will talk about the sweetspots of traditional Cloud Foundry and serverless models, as well as cases where both models complement each other to create highly efficient cloud-native architectures. OpenWhisk’s core concepts, programming model, and general value proposition will be presented. Andreas and Andrei will conclude their session with a demonstration of practical examples of OpenWhisk-based end-to-end applications.

Do More With Your Apps: Unleashing the Power of the V3 Cloud Controller API - Utako Ueda and Dan Wendorf, Pivotal
Some of the biggest problems developers have had with the Cloud Controller API have traditionally revolved around lifecycle management of their apps. The lack of features like version rollbacks, zero downtime deployment, running one-off tasks, simplified database migration, and running multiple processes per application have frustrated many developers.

The CAPI team is working on making all this and more possible with V3 of the cloud controller API. The new application modeling provides much more flexibility and control over the workflows available to you for application deployment, while maintaining backwards compatibility with the Cloud Foundry interface you use today.

Utako and Dan will explain how to take advantage of the V3 API, and get into the details of the strategies involved in ensuring both dependable backwards compatibility and exciting new resource modularity.

Unleash the Multi-Cloud with BOSH - Jatin Naik, Pivotal
Cloud operators want to be able to run and manage systems on a variety of cloud providers. Today Cloud Foundry’s BOSH only supports a single cloud provider for a given installation.

Introducing the BOSH meta CPI concept project which deploys multiple CPIs and allows a CPI to be chosen while deploying, giving operators the power to decide which IaaS is used for certain instance types and thus the ability to create a multi-cloud BOSH deployments. Uses cases for the meta CPI include deploying systems across multiple clouds, scaling from a private to a public cloud, running services on a particular IaaS that provides specialised hardware and executing errands in Garden containers.

Understand how to manage multi cloud deployments using a single BOSH installation and learn about the latency and network issues that arise.

Snakes in a Buildpack: Deploying Data Science in Cloud Foundry - Ian Huston & James Wen, Pivotal
The Cloud Foundry Buildpacks team set out on a journey in February to go where no official buildpack has gone before: Data Science. Working with those most elusive creatures, data scientists, we toiled in the deepest darkest crevices of our stacks and buildpacks to find a way to easily support the PyData ecosystem. We discovered a package manager called Conda and migrated it to the buildpacks’ zoo, where it now lives in glorious captivity.

Join us as we share our story with you! From idea inception to experiment after experiment after experiment after… you get the idea. We’ll share our initial working hypothesis and subsequent surprising discoveries, dive into the innards of buildpacks and stacks and detail what it was like working with the Pivotal Data Science team as our first customer. Finally, we’ll `cf push` a python data science app with no vendored dependencies!

Saving Human Lives with the IoT - Dat Tran, Pivotal
Nearly 1.2 million people die in road crashes each year (WHO - 2015) with additional millions becoming injured or disabled. One big part of this problem is worst road traffic conditions and unless action is taken, road traffic injuries are predicted to become the fifth leading cause of death by 2030. Moreover, although road traffic injuries have been a major cause of mortality for many years, most traffic accidents are both predictable and preventable. In this talk, we want to demonstrate a scalable IoT platform that uses weather data and data from other cars to warn drivers of dangerous conditions. We will show how CF can help to save human lives and the architecture behind this. Additionally, we will also explain the data science that is involved.

Simple Abstractions for the Challenge of Complexity - How Cloud Foundry's Layered Approach Allows for Isolated Components and a Pattern for Reuse - Duncan Winn, Pivotal

Simple abstractions for the challenge of complexity - how Cloud Foundry's layered approach allows for isolated components and a pattern for reuse.”

With all the hype around trends such as microservices, DevOps, and continuous delivery, what does it look like in reality? Cloud Foundry, including both the way it is architected, and developed, expertly demonstrate how these trends are established and why they make sense for distributed architectures such as Cloud Foundry.

This talk comes from spending three years writing a technical book on Cloud Foundry that explores the core components, the beauty of Diego’s abstraction , the value and progression of BOSH and the essential steps required for debugging CF.

This talk is intended for anyone getting started with CF or anyone who wants to see real world examples of the aforementioned trends in practice.

Private, Hybrid & Public Cloud CF Environments on Microsoft Azure - Mario Szpuszta, Microsoft
Microsoft Azure is a public cloud platform available across 38 regions world-wide. Microsoft has worked on an official CPI to enable CloudFoundry on Azure with the Open Source Community and Pivotal. This CPI is available for about a year, now! In this presentation, Gil and Mario will go beyond the basics and will focus on running Private, Hybrid and Globally Distributed CF Clusters in Microsoft Azure and Azure Stack. They will show you how-to get them implemented and how you can re-use your assets across the public cloud (Azure) and the private Cloud (Azure Stack). They'll discuss how failover can happen across multiple environments and what the caveats are by deploying CF Clusters and apps across those environments.

What’s New in Cloud Foundry Routing - Shannon Coen, Prashanth Subrahmanyam and Chris Piraino, Pivotal
Route Services: Until recently, developers were on their own to implement rate-limiting, authentication, and many request transformation functions offered by API gateway services. Route Services expand the use cases that can be fulfilled by Marketplace services, enabling developers managing apps on CF to inject a service into the request path, or dynamically configure a component already in the request path. User-provided services are also supported!

TCP Routing: Some developers would like to run workloads on Cloud Foundry that receive requests over TCP protocols other than http. Some developers would prefer to terminate TLS connections at the application. With support for TCP routing and multiple app ports, we enable these use case and more.

This session will provide an update from the Routing team, including demonstrations of some of these new features in CF Routing.

Developing a Westy Tracking platform on Cloud Foundry - Rob Brinkman, JDriven
Experiencing Europe while traveling with our Volkswagen Camper (Westy) is one of the items on top of my bucket list. It would be great to offer friends and family the possibility to track our adventure in real-time and build up a history of the route we took and the places we visited. For that purpose I develop a real-time tracking platform using Vert.x, Redis and AngularJS and I equipped the Westy with an online GPS Tracker and deployed it to CloudFloundry. The realized platform uses Vert.x to handle events published by the tracker(s), stores the history in Redis and visualizes the real-time location and history an a map using AngularJS. This session will give insight in the modern (reactive) architecture style of the application and a hands on introduction to Vert.x., Redis and AngularJS deployed on Cloud Foundry.

Not Only for Giants: The Minimal Reasonable Size of a Cloud Foundry Implementation - Juan Pablo Genovese, Altoros
Allstate, EMC, HP, IBM, GE... All of them are giants in their respective industries. Sometimes, it looks like Cloud Foundry is destined to only work for the big guys. The size of a typical deployment alone can be quite intimidating. However, there are very compelling reasons and very specific ways for a small/medium sized business to adopt Cloud Foundry as a cloud platform to manage their software products and implementations. In this presentation, Juan Pablo Genovese will demonstrate the smallest and cheapest possible way to deploy Cloud Foundry, achieving an affordable solution for in-house Cloud Foundry management. He will go over different IaaS options, a sample BOSH manifest, and how to make the most of Cloud Foundry for a small/medium sized company. This will help companies that think Cloud Foundry is "too complicated" to look at this awesome product in a different way.

Update on Cloud Foundry Isolation Segments (formerly Elastic Clusters) - Dieu Cao, Pivotal
Motivation: CF Operators want the ability to isolate workloads across separate networks, iaas’s, and datacenters to meet compliance, availability, and cost requirements. CF Operators expect to achieve this isolation without the added overhead of managing multiple full installs of Cloud Foundry.

Goal: The goal of this set of features is to enable the cloud controller to address workloads to isolated compute, routing, and logging components and assign application placement by mapping a Cloud Foundry Space to an Isolation Segment. We intend to support a new bosh deployment, a Cloud Foundry Isolation Segment, that may include compute, routing, and logging components. The cloud controller will have added functionality to allow operators to manage segments of CF capacity via the api.

Pair Programming from 2,000 km Away: Strategies for Distributed Agile Teams - Jen Spinney, HPE
Cloud Foundry development is driven by several tenants, agile development, test-driven development and of course pair programming. Pair programming is seen as working best when the pairs are right next to each other working on the same computer in the same room, but what do you do when your pair is hundreds and perhaps thousands of miles away? The Diego team has several members who are not located in San Francisco, so remote pairing is part of our daily workflow. This talk will touch on the tools we use, the process we follow, and how we get the most out of a remote pairing situation. Andrew and Jennifer will also look at the drawbacks most often faced with remote teams and discuss a few strategies the we use to combat issues and to keep the remote team members engaged and productive and have a truly distributed agile development team.

CF Server-Less: CloudFoundry as a Platform for Server-less Computing - Nima Kaviani & Michael Maximilien, IBM
As CloudFoundry matures to become the de-facto platform for enterprise cloud computing, it is no surprise that various types of computing services need to be supported. Server-less computing is a new name for various previous concepts or technologies, e.g. functors, functional programming. In this model of computing, applications are written as a series of small functions with clear input and output and can be executed in the cloud on demand. The difference between this approach and eg. micro-services is that the backend part only executes when invoked. In this talk we compare and contrast possible approaches to make CF a first class platform for server-less computing. We explore retrofitting the current CF app push model, leverage open source server less platforms like OpenWhisk, and investigate how the CF runtime (Diego) could be improved to support server less apps as on-off tasks.

Catch Me If You Can – Leveraging Cloud Foundry, SDN, BOSH and Predictive Analytics to Outrun Advanced Persistent Threats (APT) While Maintaining Optimal Quality of Service (QoS) - Keith Strini, Merlin Glynn & Sean Keery, Pivotal
As we work to move the BOSH/Cloud Foundry ecosystem closer to an autonomous dynamic runtime architecture, it’s time to incorporate more layers of the OSI model into the fold to provide a more robust security posture and optimize performance. BOSH coupled with a properly architected SDN, can manage more complexity in its deployments such that each Cloud Foundry deployment can adapt in response to demands on the system, security policy, or degradation of network performance. By analyzing continuous feedback of key metrics and easily offloading these metrics to BOSH managed Big Data platforms, operators can now define Domain Specific Language (DSL) based strategies and pass them to BOSH to manage how to adapt the entire domain in response to changes in the health of the communications layers below it.

What is "Serverless"? - Moderated by Kim Bannerman, IBM; Kenny Bastani, Ruben Orduz, Jason Kennedy, & Tyler Britten, IBM, Casey West & Kenny Bastani, Pivotal
We all have heard these "Serverless" or "NoOps" buzzwords lately. So, why do these matter? How does it affect Cloud Foundry? Are they affronts or sources of impulse for the platform and community and CF technology? Should CF take a stance or just let the buzz fizz?

The thrust and motivation of this panel is the increased (mis)use of buzzwords like "serverless" and "NoOps" floating around and how those tend to be conflated with other technologies like PaaS, CF, and other fast-deployment technologies.

Please note it's not supposed to be a critique or the merits of the technologies discussed. It's a constructive and educational panel on the nomenclature and messaging and how that impacts Cloud Foundry and the tech community at large.

It’s about trust & responsibility with the freedom to innovate, take risk & learn from failure. Much of this is alien to a traditional financial enterprise governed & protected by processes derived from years of operation – the ‘scar tissue’. Through the use of Cloud Foundry and software defined networks, Fidelity have been able to generate a new way of working to help mend these wounds and show the art of what is possible. Emma is very proud to have created the first devops team in Fidelity – their journey is worth sharing.

Keynote: The Shift to a New Digital Allianz Germany - Dr. Daniel Poelchau, Allianz

The fast progress of digitalization is a challenge for Allianz Germany. Customers compare the value of products and services of their insurance companies to the intuitive offerings they are used to from other industries. Additionally, there is a growing number of Startups and InsurTechs shaping the market with innovative ideas and their aim to take possession of the customer interface. This means: in order to be still market leader in ten years, Allianz Germany needs to get digital by default and to be fully geared to customers’ needs and expectations of the digital age.

We recognized the necessity for a wide-ranging digital transformation at Allianz Germany and translated the key factors into our corporate strategy. Of course, two decisive factors are the shift towards a co-located and agile software development together with the implementation of an elastic Cloud Foundry infrastructure which offers easy scalability of successful products.

Keynote: Anthropic Sympathy - How Cloud Foundry & Continuous Delivery Make Humans Happier and More Productive - Daniel Jones, CTO, EngineerBetter
Cloud Foundry and Continuous Delivery make it possible to exploit the findings of cognitive psychology and neuroscience to increase the productivity and happiness of our teams.

This session will answer:
• How can we improve willpower & decrease technical debt?
• Is the present bias real? How can we turn it to our advantage?
• Can you increase a team’s effective IQ?
• How do DevOps & Product Teams increase empathy, and what impact does empathy have on productivity?
• Why is Cloud Foundry vital to all of this?

“Mechanical sympathy” was popularised in software development when LMAX inverted the practice of writing software in a style that befitted humans, and instead wrote code that exploited characteristics of the hardware it ran upon. This talk makes the argument that our processes are software, our teams the platform, and our brains the hardware (wetware!) that runs it.

Keynote - Innovating Around The Digital Core - Marc Geall, SVP, Head of Platform Partner Ecosystem, GCO, SAP; Steffen Stang, Director MindSphere R&D and Product Management, SIEMENS; & Bernd Issler, VP, Cloud & Enterprise Software, Atos

Find out how SAP is extending its ecosystem of ISVs to help customers turn digital disruption to advantage by leveraging agile cloud applications built on Hana Cloud Platform. Hear from SAP, Siemens and Atos about the joint journey they are taking.

SAP is helping its customers and partners embrace digital disruption. Digital Transformation allows customers to re-think classical business processes and take advantage of new inputs and insights to scale their businesses more quickly. However, the pace of innovation in most industries can be so fast that only an open ecosystem approach to Bimodal IT stands a chance of success, and one that connects directly to the most relevant business data. 

SAP is leveraging an open platform strategy that allows customers to build new applications and extensions, run these side-by-side ecosystem partner innovation (offered as packaged SaaS applications), and all natively integrated to their back-end systems, whether in the cloud or on-premise.

Thanks to cloud, analytics and mobile technologies, the Olympics is being transformed into a global connected experience through a centralized cloud model.  This transformation is being led by an outstanding team of senior women at Atos.  Unfortunately, the diversity gap, in particular the gender balance, remains stronger in IT than in other industries. 

Research is showing that diversity including gender diversity has a positive impact on corporate performance. 

Will open and collaborative technologies such as cloud create the pull for women and minorities to – at last - extend their contribution to IT and, further, to enterprise innovation and performance?

OCI in CF: For Buildpacks, Security and Interoperability - Julz Friedman, IBM & Will Pragnell, Pivotal
The CF buildpacks workflow allows app developers to focus on the business logic of their code rather than the operational concerns of the OS that runs their code. At the same time, CF operators need confidence that all the code running in their org has been patched for the latest vulnerabilities. However, the current workflow does not currently support dynamically linked compiled languages well. This makes it very difficult to support apps written in C, haskell, et.al.; and also leaves us with a large difficult-to-protect surface area in our rootfs. We explore a solution to this problem using the new OCI container image specification, and demonstrate how this could result in a more flexible, more secure platform that supports better interoperability with the rest of the container ecosystem. For example, what if you could download your droplet and run it on any OCI container manager?

Docker and Cloud Foundry: The 3 Use Cases - Alexandre Vasseur, Pivotal
With Diego, Cloud Foundry is capable of deploying and running apps as Docker images. That is now easy to orchestrate, scale and manage in production those Docker containers up to the point that what you care is not Docker but the app itself. But there is more you can do to and explore combining Cloud Foundry with Docker!

- leveraging Docker service broker, possibly using Docker Swarm managed by BOSH to provide containers as a service with all the BOSH and service broker great capabilities
- leveraging Concourse and Docker based pipeline to ensure your run pipeline in isolation, using Concourse as BOSH release with garden-runC.

Those 3 uses cases are fully independent yet all use Cloud Foundry, BOSH and Docker to align to specific requirements. Come learn about those combined architectures, seem them in action thru live demos, and expand the possibilities with Cloud Foundry.

Building an Open Framework for Cloud Based IoT Solutions - Steffen Evers, Bosch Software Innovations GmbH
It is expected that in the next years billions of devices will be connected to the internet of things (IoT). Many of them will interact with cloud-based solutions to provide additional services on the devices or in the web. To bring IoT to the next level technologies for supporting cross-domain/cross-vendor solutions are needed. Cloud Foundry is a great technological base for building IoT solutions. However, on top of it, software is needed for the connectivity challenges, support of domain-specific protocols, large scale messaging and device management and integration with existing infrastructure. Eclipse IoT aims to address these needs and provide an IoT framework that makes IoT development fast and simple. Bosch SI is active in CFF and Eclipse to bring both worlds together to develop with many other companies a suitable base for the IoT solutions of tomorrow. Come and join us!

Highly Available Cloud Foundry Deployment for Allstate - Henry Sinclair, Allstate
Cloud Foundry has a lot of native features that allows it to run in a highly available manner. However, these features are not enough if you need Cloud Foundry to be highly available across multiple regions particularly for on premise deployments.

This talk walks you through how Allstate architected and designed an integrated infrastructure designed for maximum resiliency. The design starts from datacenter placement to physical infrastructure isolation, network domain isolation, security zone isolation, and up to application architecture patterns. Allstate redesigned everything including the infrastructure supply chain to optimise infrastructure build and delivery.

In the end, Allstate has a multi-deployment solution that spans physical regions and availability zones that guarantee a 99.9% up time for applications.

Hell NO! This talk will introduce the current state and give an outlook to the future of the bits-service project.

In short, the bits-service is an extraction of an existing functionality in the cloud controller today - externalising everything related to bits (application bits, droplets, packages, buildpacks, …) into a proper micro service. It can be scaled independently, is encapsulated by a well-defined API, so its a generic BLOBSTORE API, right?

As cloud native architecture and deployments of microservices based systems are more widely adopted, the challenges of ensuring correct functioning of the system as a whole grow significantly. Due to the distributed nature it is hard to deterministically bring systems into predefined states in order to make assertions on the behaviour. For developers wanting to make changes fast and reliable feedback into what effect their work has is a must to mitigate risk while keeping high levels of productivity.

When and Why Does Portability Matter? Exploring Multi-cloud, Open Source and Cloud Switching Costs - Dan Young, EngineerBetter
In a world without viable AWS alternatives and nascent levels of adoption, high cloud switching costs have been of secondary concern; productivity has always trumped portability. However as AWS usage and skills become more evenly distributed, the competitive advantage of early adopters begins to evaporate.

Barbara Liskov said ‘Modularity through abstraction is the way things get done’. With Cloud Foundry and BOSH we now have an abstraction layer that allows us to imagine IaaS providers as modular building blocks, or a competitive utility market.

In this talk Dan will examine the evidence that points to multi-cloud defining the next phase of competitive advantage and also explain how business leaders in 2016 can use this to make better economic choices regarding their investment in cloud platform skills and technology.

How Cloud Controller Makes the Foundry Go ‘Round - Urvashi Reddy, Pivotal & Simon Leung, IBM
Cloud Foundry is one of the most capable Platform as a Service out there. Internally Cloud Foundry is a very complex system, but at the heart of it lives the Cloud Controller. It’s what makes the entire system tick. And now with the inclusion of v3 features, Cloud Controller is changing into a more performant component within Cloud Foundry.

For those who are actively using and maintaining the platform, it is crucial to understand the internals of Cloud Controller and how it works. In this session, attendees will hear an overview of Cloud Controller and how it fits in the Cloud Foundry ecosystem.

If you have ever wondered how your source code turns into a running app or what the future of Cloud Controller looks like, this is a talk you won’t want to miss!

Docker & Buildpacks: One App, Two Options for Deploying to Cloud Foundry - Jen Spinney, HPE & James Myers, Pivotal
Now that Cloud Foundry natively supports pushing Docker containers in addition to the traditional approach of constructing an app from a buildpack, end-users have a choice about which strategy to use. In this talk, we’ll walk through pushing the same sample app to Cloud Foundry using both the buildpack and Docker container techniques.

We’ll discuss the pros and cons of both approaches, and at the end of the talk, attendees will have a better sense of the ‘hows’ and the ‘whys’ of the buildpack and Docker application lifecycles in Cloud Foundry.

Building an IoT Cloud for the Healthcare Industry: How to Solve Networking, Security, and Multi-tenancy Challenges and Still Have Fault Tolerance and High Availability - Sergey Sverchkov, Altoros
Imagine yourself building an IoT healthcare cloud solution that securely connects to hundreds of private hospital networks and exchanges data with 100,000+ devices via WebSocket, TCP, and HTTP. In this scenario, even private networks routing can become a challenge. Now, add the requirements to encrypt and store customer data separately, run the pool of shared applications in Cloud Foundry for customer multi-tenancy, and integrate authentication with customer directory services. What you will get is a very complex project that must thoroughly address all aspects of building a shared and secure private cloud. In this talk, we will concentrate on the details of networking, security, and multi-tenancy implementations for an IoT cloud-based healthcare solution and reveal the architecture principles of device adapters that allow for seamless integration of new devices.

How dorma+kaba Leverages and Deploys on CloudFoundry - Michael Erne, wölkli gmbh & Adriano Raiano, dorma+kaba

DORMA Group and Kaba Group, merged to form dorma+kaba in September 2015. The merger has created one of the top three companies in the global market for security and access solutions, with pro forma sales of more than CHF 2 billion and around 16,000 employees. dorma+kaba is active in over 50 countries and has a presence, through both production sites and distribution and service offices, in all relevant markets. In this presentation, you will take part of the journey of how dorma+kaba is leveraring Cloud Foundry for their access control as a service "exivo" and how they deploy on it.

Cloud Foundry makes it exceptionally simple to deploy and manage applications with simple commands like 'cf push'. However, as your application grows in complexity and the number of deployed components explodes it becomes difficult to keep an overview of the required services and bindings. Many organisations, like dorma+kaba, face these challenges sooner or later, especially with microservices architecture.  Starting from the naive idea of automating deployments using shell scripts wrapping the Cloud Foundry cli, the pitfalls encountered with this approach, and the evolution towards sophisticated and reliable tooling. Finally dorma+kaba built their open framework to deploy 80+ applications through multiple deployment stages including production and open sourced it during the CF Summit

Undo for Service Brokers - Justin Carter & Dr Nic Williams, Stark & Wayne
The Cloud Foundry service api as an interface allows application developers to create, delete and update services that they want to consume in their applications. There is however no support for other important features of stateful services such as disaster-recovery or recreation of mistakenly deleted instances.

In this presentation Justin Carter will talk about how the api could be evolved to support more use cases in the future as well as how the existing api can be hacked to add support for ‘user-undo’ today as was done in dingo-postgresql, an open source service broker for clustered postgresql services.

Liberate Your CloudFoundry Installation From Being Constrained to a Single Cloud - Marcel Härry, Swisscom
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.

Leverage Existing Enterprise Data as Cloud Foundry Services - Robert Moss, Cloudsoft Corporation
Enterprises have a wealth of data in pre-existing databases, which are ripe for developers to create new and exciting applications. Currently developers have to contact the database admin and request a new user account and register it as a user-provided service. The Cloudsoft Service Broker Manager allows an administrator to add service definitions for creating users to its service broker quickly. This means that developers can securely access existing enterprise data as reliable Cloud Foundry managed services.

In this presentation, Robert Moss will demonstrate how to add new service definitions using a form-based user interface. He will show how to create a service definition that provides Read-Only access to pre-existing SQL databases.

How to Scale Single-Node Service Brokers with Subway - Justin Carter & Xiujiao Gao, Stark & Wayne
Using cf-containers broker (packaged in docker-boshrelease) is the fastest and easiest way to get as a service working with Cloud Foundry by leveraging the existing ecosystem of docker based services. It allows you to easliy start and stop docker containers via the Cloud Foundry services api. But bringing up multiple service instances on a single node can quickly lead to a shortage of resource (memory, cpu, disk).

In this presentation, Justin Carter and Xiujiao Gao will talk about Subway, which is a multiplexing service broker that allows you to scale out single-node brokers. They will demonstrate how to deploy Subway as a proxy to balance incoming requests to multiple backend brokers. This allows horizontal scaling of brokers such as cf-containers-broker that were previously confined to a single node. Subway is OSS project and has been deployed in GE Predix.
