How can Cloud Foundry help you develop and deploy business-critical applications and tasks with velocity? This practical guide demonstrates how this open source, cloud-native application platform not only significantly reduces the develop-to-deploy cycle time, but also raises the value line for application operators by changing the way applications and supporting services are deployed and run. Learn how Cloud Foundry can help you improve your product velocity by handling many of essential tasks required to run applications in production. Author Duncan Winn shows DevOps and operations teams how to configure and run Cloud Foundry at scale. You’ll examine Cloud Foundry’s technical concepts—including how various platform components interrelate—and learn how to choose your underlying infrastructure, define the networking architecture, and establish resiliency requirements. This book covers: Cloud-native concepts that make the app build, test, deploy, and scale faster How to deploy Cloud Foundry and the BOSH release engineering toolchain Concepts and components of Cloud Foundry’s runtime architecture Cloud Foundry’s routing mechanisms and capabilities The platform’s approach to container tooling and orchestration BOSH concepts, deployments, components, and commands Basic tools and techniques for debugging the platform Recent and soon-to-emerge features of Cloud Foundry

A Complete, Practical Guide to Building and Hosting Cloud Services That Deliver Exceptional Business Value In this unique title, key developers of the IBM SmartCloud Enterprise share indispensable insights for developing and operating cloud-based solutions on any cloud platform. Drawing on their unsurpassed in-the-trenches experience, the authors help you develop the new mindset and skills needed to succeed in cloud environments, where development, business, and system operations are linked more tightly than ever. Using examples based on IBM SmartCloud Enterprise, the authors cover a wide variety of cloud "use cases," while also introducing general principles for automating and optimizing IT infrastructure in any cloud environment. They begin by presenting an authoritative, accessible review of cloud computing and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) cloud concepts. Next, they demonstrate how to use cloud tools, develop basic cloud applications, and utilize standards to establish interoperability between clouds. Finally, drawing on deep personal experience, they offer best-practice solutions for all facets of cloud hosting, including security, monitoring, performance, availability, and business support. Throughout, they emphasize real-world problem solving, offering numerous code examples and practical demonstrations of real-world tools and utilities. Coverage includes Understanding each cloud deployment model: private, community, public, and hybrid Reviewing key cloud computing use cases, including those based on virtualization and collaboration Developing for the cloud with the LAMP stack, Windows, J2EE, WebSphere, and other technologies Building apps for the IBM SmartCloud Enterprise public infrastructure Using the command line toolkit, Java, and REST APIs to manage IBM SmartCloud Enterprise resources Exploring cloud computing standards and open source projects that promote interoperability among clouds Building cloud applications to customize images, deliver network services, install/manage software, and provide remote desktops Using IBM's powerful self-service and delegated administration models and best-of-breed VM images Leveraging open source projects for cloud service management and virtualization Understanding cloud service security: trusted certificates, identity/access management, SSH, HTTPS, IPSec, application hardening, and much more Monitoring and optimizing performance and availability through the entire system lifecycle Managing, scaling, and automating cloud applications to meet business needs This title will be valuable to every enterprise developer, architect, and IT manager seeking the full benefits of cloud-based services; all ISVs building value-add services on public clouds; and everyone building applications that rely heavily on IaaS, Platform as a Service (PaaS), Software as a Service (SaaS), or Business as a Service (BaaS).

Write and run Swift language programs in the Cloud Written by the team of developers that has helped bring the Swift language to Cloud computing, this is the definitive guide to writing and running Swift language programs for cloud environment. In Swift in the Cloud, you'll find full coverage of all aspects of creating and running Swift language applications in Cloud computing environments, complete with examples of real code that you can start running and experimenting with today. Since Apple introduced the Swift language in 2014, it has become one of the most rapidly adopted computer programming languages in history—and now you too can start benefitting from using the same programming language for all components of a scalable, robust business software solution. Create server applications using Swift and run them on pay-as-you-go cloud infrastructure Quickly write and test Swift code snippets in your own cloud sandbox Use Docker containers to deploy Swift applications into multiple cloud environments without having to change code Grasp the elements and structure of the Swift.org open technology project Find out how to avoid the complexities of runtime configuration by using Cloud Foundry buildpacks for Swift Build high performing web applications and REST APIs with an open source Swift based web server framework Scale up your cloud services by running Swift modules in an asynchronous, open source, 'serverless' cloud environment Whether you are already using Swift to build mobile applications or a seasoned web developer, Swift in the Cloud will help you leverage server-side Swift to power your next generation of applications.
