Re: Placement Pools

Dieu Cao <dcao@...>

Yes, I was just talking with Onsi and Mark Kropf about this yesterday and
plan to submit a talk on this with Mark Kropf for cf summit berlin.

I'll take on getting the proposal for isolation groups shared with cf-dev,
hopefully, in the next couple of weeks.

James, Onsi,
we’re also looking forward to this, for we have some peculiar
infrastructure requirements.

we've been using a new term for the same concept we've previously labeled
placement pools called "isolation groups".

onsi has been working on some documentation for what this may look like
and the requirements, but the work has not started. i believe onsi will
share something soon.

so today, the way to accomplish this need to place apps on specific
infrastructure is to use separate CF installations.

More than a year ago, there was some discussion and a proposal around
adding placement pools so cloud foundry admins could better target how
applications were placed on runners:

Did this work gain traction? I've looked through the release notes as
well as MEGA and CF Diego's public trackers and don't see stories for this
work either done or planned, though it could also be that I'm just not
finding it.

My goal is to place canary apps in specifically Z1 or Z2, as well as
place some internally used apps that, for networking reasons, should be in
one zone or the other.
