Application placement pools (the stack hack)

Carlo Alberto Ferraris

We're currently in the middle of the CF summit and during our presentation about the 5 years of Cloud Foundry in Rakuten we shared how we (ab)use the stack mechanism to provide application placement pools. Our presentation however was a whirlwind tour of 5 years of history, so we couldn't go into much details about this.

Luckily I talked about this into more details a while back at the first CF Tokyo meetup. While we don't have recorded the talk, the slides are online at Some of the people that I met here in Santa Clara were very interested in knowing more and never heard of that presentation so I thought that sharing it here would help more people find it.

I will be around the CF summit until tomorrow afternoon, if you have any questions feel free to catch up with me to talk.
