GO applications and Cloud Foundry (26. May 2015)
Cloud Foundry is one of many options to host your applications. It is a PaaS originally developed by VMware, now governed by Cloud Foundry Foundation. Not going much into details about where, how and what as those information is publicly available I’ll focus here on how to host your GO applications on any Cloud Foundry installation including PCF or PWS.
It’s been a while since the last blog and this is the last in the series of “SockJS-go lessons learned”.
It’s been a while since implementing SockJS library for Go. Since then I learned couple of new things about the language and runtime. So here I’ll try to summarise what it was.
Recently I spent some time playing with BOSH which is a tool for release engineering, deployment and lifecycle management of large scale distributed services. It is used to manage VMs in AWS and vSphere. The vSphere option seemed to be interesting to me and the idea of having private Cloud Foundry PaaS running locally on private infrastructure was exciting. The BOSH is under heavy development and it’s sometimes difficult to make things work easily even if following various tutorials and blogs and I’m very thankful to the authors.
