Oracle Bare Metal Cloud (BMC) Orchestration With Cloudify
This post dives into the Oracle BMC plugin for Cloudify and how to get started.
Orchestrating A Kubernetes Managed Virtual Network Function With Cloudify
This post explores the process of containerizing Quagga and deploying it using Kubernetes.
Hybrid VNF Container Orchestration With Kubernetes and Docker Swarm Using Cloudify
This post will show how Cloudify orchestrates a service chain that spans multiple container management engines such as Kubernetes and Docker Swarm.
Orchestrating Docker 1.12 Swarm With Cloudify
Learn how to orchestrate, deploy, manage, and scale a Docker Swarm cluster on OpenStack using Cloudify
How to Orchestrate Rolling Upgrades With A Custom Workflow Using Cloudify and TOSCA
One of the differentiators in the marketplace for Cloudify is its ability to automate complex post deployment tasks. One such task is a rolling upgrade of software in a web server content. This is a multi-step process that typically involves a coordinated dance between the loadbalancer and the web servers, along with the installation
Scaling Kubernetes Microservices on OpenStack With TOSCA Orchestration Pt II of II
In my previous post, I described orchestrating a hybrid architecture that included Kubernetes, Kubernetes hosted microservices, and a cloud hosted database, all running on Openstack. That post described how everything was deployed, but left the implementation of post deployment dynamism to the imagination. This post finishes the story. Try the Kubernetes Orchestration as a
Scaling Kubernetes Microservices on OpenStack With TOSCA Orchestration Pt I of II
In a previous post, I converted a Fabric-based plugin implementation to an Openstack agent-based implementation. In this episode, I finally reached one of the key goals of this long running effort; to automate scaling on Kubernetes using Cloudify native means. The path to this goal leads through some of the more exotic parts of
Nodecellar Gets Real (Distributed)
In a previous post titled “Deployment Composition In Cloudify”, I described using a custom type/plugin to compose multiple blueprints. This post describes an expansion of that effort, to make nodecellar into a real distributed app. In essence, I describe a concrete implementation of the blueprint described in Nati Shalom’s recent post which described various
Orchestrating Kubernetes On OpenStack
In my previous post, I discussed enhancing the original, basic Kubernetes plugin into a version that was reasonably functional. That version was designed to use Fabric and operate on preexisting machines (virtual or “bare metal”). This post discusses the changes needed to create the same hybrid deployment as before, but hosted on OpenStack. Try
Cloudify Meets Kubernetes – Enhancing The Integration
Integrating Cloudify with Kubernetes is compelling for those with hybrid environments (containers, virtualization, cloud, bare metal, even hardware), who would like to leverage Kubernetes’ container management instead of Cloudify’s, and/or leverage Cloudify’s event driven workflows to perform autoscaling or other automatic processes. In my last post, I described an initial integration with Kubernetes, which
