A number of services on offer for Cloud Foundry architectures have emerged, posing new challenges — as well as offering new opportunities — for service providers.
Steffen Zuber and Michael Lieser, platform engineers for anynines, were on hand to discuss their challenges offering data services for Cloud Foundry platforms during a podcast hosted earlier this month by Alex Williams, founder and editor-in-chief of The New Stack, during Cloud Foundry Summit Europe 2018 in Basel, Switzerland.
Zuber described how their roles have evolved over the past year as platform engineers.
“Last year, we [adopted] DevOps, as we have enabled users to use Cloud Foundry. We have begun to develop data services customers need to for database applications, messaging queues etcetera,” Zuber said. “We focus on the automation to set up these services. So, you have the features from Cloud foundry also for our data services.”
When offering data services with Cloud Foundry, stateless is the operative word, Zuber said.
