Why read this?
BOSH is an open-source tool chain that orchestrates the deployment process of distributed systems. It can be used to provision and deploy apps and services over several—even hundreds—VMs. BOSH can perform scaling, health monitoring, and recovery of failed instances, as well as provide updates with zero or near-zero downtime. It was originally designed to deploy Cloud Foundry, but can be used to package, install, and manage life cycle of other software.
This cheat sheet can help you to get familiar with:
- basic BOSH terminology
- pro tips on managing your deployments
- commands to maintain / support a cluster
- instructions on how to create a custom BOSH release
Before explaining how to bootstrap a cloud with BOSH, the document also introduces a DevOps engineer to MicroBOSH and BOSH Director.
