CF Deployments (Best Practices)

Private training

During this four-day course, students will be exposed to the major topics and information required to automate Cloud Foundry deployment. Along with Concourse basics, main concepts of Cloud Foundry, and BOSH architecture, the attendees will get hands-on experience with High Availability deployment, automation for managing orgs, spaces, quotas, as well as data recovery and replication. The course can be applied for multiple Cloud Foundry foundations.

During the course the students will

  • Get an understanding of Cloud Foundry orgs, spaces, and quotas management automation
  • Learn about active-active and active-passive deployments
  • Gain experience in disaster recovery and data replication

The course was especially tailored for

  • DevOps engineers responsible for building and operating the Cloud Foundry platform.

Our customers

Here is what our customers say about us
Adam Singh
"The instructors were friendly; the class was very wide-ranged. We covered 12 factors in details, learned about service registration and discovery, log tracing. That was as much as you can pack in a few hours"
Bill Harper
"It was a great training. I’ve tried to look at this stuff and understand it on my own, but coming to this class allowed me get a much deeper understanding of Bosh and Cloud Foundry. What I’ve learned is how to deploy it, the value it has, how much more sophisticated than some of the other PaaS systems it is"
Brad Schaefbauer
"I think the training is really good. There are a lot of questions, and it’s great because I have the same ones. It shows that I am in the right place. This is a great class if you want to learn more about what the undercover of Cloud Foundry does at its best"
Eric Price
"This workshop is great for people with a zero of ground knowledge of Cloud Foundry and Bosh. It would apply even more to people who are reliant on knowing how to bring this [Cloud Foundry] up, it is going to be a "bread and butter” for developers"
Wes Gruver
"I really like the training. I think it was thorough and informative. The hands-on nature was essential for learning Bosh, which is very complicated. It’s not something you can learn by watching just two slides. Getting your hands on the keyboard was the best part of the day. I would totally recommend this course to any of our partners or any potential customers"
