BOSH, configuring services, not systems

A session at Config Management Camp 2015

Monday 2nd February, 2015

11:20am to 12:00pm (WET)

The emergence of configuration management supported by improved tooling has been an awesome force to behold and be part of over the last decade, but configuration as a node level primitive was never enough. As a consequence, all manner of scripts and orchestration tools are required to translate from node level configurations to meaningful deployments and other ongoing operational considerations. This presentation will show making services the first level primitive, integrating per node configuration capabilities with declarative multi-node service definitions, can help solve some of the most common problems. BOSH was originally developed as a deployment tool for Cloud Foundry’s Elastic Runtime, but is also a general purpose configuration solution. BOSH powers Pivotal’s production Cloud Foundry deployment supporting thousands of applications, and a growing number of deployments of Kubernetes, Cassandra, MySQL, RabbitMQ and many other popular services.
