On behalf of the CF Routing team I invite you to bring your non-http
workloads to Cloud Foundry.

By deploying the Routing Release [1] alongside Cloud Foundry and the Diego
runtime backend, operators can enable developers to create TCP routes based
on reservable ports.

The developer UX for pushing an app and mapping a TCP route is as simple
as this:

cf p myapp -d tcp.bosh-lite.com --random-route

The response includes a port associated with the TCP route. Client
requests to these ports will be routed to applications running on CF
through a layer-4 protocol-agnostic routing tier.

The Routing Release is still very much a work in progress. We are focusing
on mitigating stale routing information in the event of network partition
with system components, and on streamlining the deployment workflow.

Please review our README for deployment instructions, give it a go. We are
looking forward to your feedback.

Thank you!

Note:
- UDP protocols are not supported.
- Both HTTP and TCP routes will be directed to the same application port,
identified by environment variable $PORT. Support for multiple application
ports is coming soon.
