Service Fabrik goes Open Source
Jain, Ashish <ashish.jain09@...>
SAP Cloud Platform team proudly announces the Open Source release of Service Fabrik (SF) and related projects.
What is Service Fabrik?
Service Fabrik is Cloud Foundry broker envisioned as one-stop for provisioning & management of enterprise grade backing services (for example PostgreSQL, MongoDB, RabbitMQ, Redis) for enterprise grade Cloud Foundry applications. It supports provisioning of developer only services using Docker Swarm and production grade services via BOSH release.
Hmm, What else?
Well, it enables provisioning of highly available and scalable services on a multi-cloud infrastructure with ease and speed. Effortlessly monitor, upgrade services with patches, security updates and backup or restore mission critical data in a periodic automated way are some of its key highlights.
Ohh really, anyone using it?
We already have hundreds of BOSH based & thousands of Containers based service deployments running in production which uses Service Fabrik. We recently announced the General Availability<https://blogs.sap.com/2017/05/16/data-management-on-sap-cloud-platform-new-environment-new-capabilities/> of backing services, managed by Service Fabrik, on SAP Cloud Platform.
That seems promising where can I get all of it?
