Cloud Foundry is an open source Cloud Platform as a Service "OpenPaaS" project created by VMware. It is multi-language/framework (Java, Ruby, Node), multi-service (MongoDB, Reddis, MySQL, Postgres, RabbitMQ) and multi-cloud (public, private, micro).
Cloud Foundry BOSH is an open source tool chain for release engineering, deployment and lifecycle management of large scale distributed services. This presentation will describe the architecture, topology, configuration, and use of BOSH, as well as the structure and conventions used in packaging and deployment.
BOSH is the system VMware is using to manage CloudFoundry.com, the Cloud Foundry based service operated by VMware, on several thousand VMs, with 40+ unique node types, 75+ unique software packages, 2x/week updates and 24x7x365 non-stop operation.
BOSH is infrastructure independent, and can be used to deploy Cloud Foundry on top of Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) products such as VMware vSphere, Amazon Web Services, or OpenStack.
