Inside the Cloud Foundry Re-Write
We are going to go back a bit into June to revisit something that made some waves at the recent Cloud Foundry Summit in San Francisco which took place from June 9-11. As the PaaS space heats up, there was great session from the Cloud Foundry team talking about some interesting changes.
Making the Decision to Rewrite Diego
Onsi Fakhouri gave a great presentation to explain what Diego is, which is the engine that drives Cloud Foundry. It was quite a challenge to imagine rewriting the layers underneath the cloud controller.
This talk is as much a lesson in the reason we should ask “Why?” when we look at any system that is existing, or being built. You will gain some great insight into what makes Cloud Foundry work, and some excellent theory on the engines of cloud-drive applications. A must watch in my opinion.
