Database implementation as a cloud foundry app

Sundarajan Srinivasan

Dear People,

We have plans to host our application layer (node js) in the cloud foundry as an app. I have a great doubt on the database implementation part in cloud foundry.

It looks like the database are usually kept outside of Cloud foundry and consumed via the service broker. If this is the case they how come the scale in and scale out happens to database.

Is there a way to push a database as an app into CF ?

And I saw that each app has been restricted to a size of 2GB max and local storage of an app is not persistent. Having said I am confused that implementing a database as an app is not a correct architecture.

I came to know that the memory (RAM) can be increase to an organization using the quota space. How to increase the storage size of an app ?
Could you please clarify the queries?
