As of cf-242
<http://bosh.io/releases/github.com/cloudfoundry/cf-release?version=242>
and Service Broker API v2.10, Cloud Foundry now ships with support for *Volume
Services*: filesystem-based data services. The v2.10 API is a release
candidate, and will be considered GA unless a bug in the implementation is
fond. An experimental version of the API was added in v2.9.

Until recently, the only data services that have been allowed are ones
with network-based interfaces, such as a SQL database. With Volume
Services, brokers can now attach data services which have a
filesystem-based interface.

Currently, we have platform support for Shared Volumes. Shared Volumes
are distributed filesystems, such as NFS-based systems, which allow all
instances of an application to share the same mounted volume simultaneously
and access it concurrently.

This feature adds two new concepts to CF: *Volume Mounts* for Service
Brokers and *Volume Drivers* for Diego Cells. Details can be found in
the links below.

*Documentation:* https://bit.ly/cf-volume-services
*CF Summit Talk:* https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ajNoPi1uMjQ

If you're going to CF Summit Europe, be sure to check out Julian's talk
detailing the types of Shared Volume Services available, and their usecases.

If you're interested in rolling out a volume service, please be in
touch. You can ask questions here, on the OSS #persi
<https://cloudfoundry.slack.com/archives/persi> slack channel, or
email me directly at tyoung(a)pivotal.io.

Cheers,
