Creating Third Party Pivotal Cloud Foundry Tiles

In a previous episode we explored some of the cool Partner products available as Product Tiles within Pivotal Cloud Foundry. This sparked some questions about how you can create your own. In this episode we explore the process for creating and releasing a Product Tile on PCF.

A Look at The Implications of Real Time Data

When building systems to handle Real-Time or Streaming Data, we need to look at some architectural elements differently. We cannot rely on the patterns of the past, but we can learn from the mistakes and successes of others! In this episode we explore some of the key considerations when designing software to handle real-time data.

A Quick Tour of Partner Services in Pivotal Cloud Foundry

One of the great things about Pivotal Cloud Foundry is how easy it is for 3rd parties to add in new capabilities. In particular, by using the Operations Manager to easily import, install and expose new services to users of the platform. In this episode we look at some of the new services available including products for source control, artefact repositories, log management and more!

Data, Why Did It Have To Be Data?

In this episode, Coté once again chats with Andrew Clay Shafer about the sundry challenges of transforming to a cloud native enterprise. We start talking about the changing focus we're seeing among Pivotal customers: moving up the stack from infrastructure to the application layers. Then we discuss the difficulties of handling the data layer, and wrap-up with some change management tactics for getting the "rank and file" inspired and bought into the cloud native lifestyle.

All About Greenplum Database

It is an exciting time for customers using data-related software - with more data being processed an analysed than ever. To do this effectively you need some heavy duty technology. And one of the best for a long time has been the Greenplum database. Now, this database is available as Open Source - giving customers even more flexibility, and enabling a flourishing community of developers and contributors. In this episode we explore more about what this means and how you can be a part of it.

Moving Up the Stack, Talking Pivotal Cloud Foundry 1.6 with James Watters

With a new version of Pivotal Cloud Foundry out, I wanted to catch up with James Watters to discuss what our customers are up to. We discuss the focus on application architecture and development that we've been seeing out in the field. Last we talked, much of the focus was on the infrastructure layer, and while this release has plenty of that, Spring Boot and Spring Cloud are some of the more interesting features in this release. So, we discuss the more developer centric context that Pivotal Cloud Foundry is running around in now.

A Look at Spring Cloud Services for Pivotal Cloud Foundry

Developing modern software emphasises loosely coupled services, resilience, ease of scaling and the like. But these attributes do not "come for free". How do you handle things like service discovery, configuration management and the tolerance of service failures?

Fortunately, services to do just that for Spring applications are now an "out of the box" part of Pivotal Cloud Foundry. In this episode, we dive a little deeper into each service.
