Announcement: BOSH for Windows


Steven Benario
 

Hello everyone,

We wanted to take this opportunity to announce a new incubating project
under the BOSH umbrella.

In the fall, we launched full support for Windows and .NET applications in
Cloud Foundry with Project Greenhouse (composed of Garden-Windows [1] and
Diego-Windows [2]). Since then, we've seen a lot of interest in bringing
the magic of CF to Windows developers.

One of the most common requests along those lines has been for BOSH to
support Windows cells. I'm pleased to announce that we have recently begun
adding support for Windows servers to Bosh (aka "Bosh for Windows" or
"BoshWin"). This project can be tracked at its public tracker [3], and will
be an open source contribution to the Foundation.

To date, all contributions have been committed directly to the Bosh-Agent
repo [4], under "windows" branches. If appropriate, we may commit code to
other repos in the future.

We are really excited to announce this, and would love to hear from you if
you are a potential user or contributor to Bosh-Windows!

Cheers,
Steven Benario

That's a really good news.
Do you have any bosh-release example for windows ??

Thanks

Very great news!

As BOSH doesn't support multiple CPIs, does this mean that people need a separate BoshWin to manage Windows deployments, along with the normal BOSH for classical Linux deployments?

Benjamin,

Thanks for asking this question!

The BOSH Windows Agent sits above the CPI abstraction, and so you will be
able to deploy Windows VMs on any of the BOSH-supported IaaSes (pending
resolution of various questions about stemcell composition).

Hi Gwenn,

We have a work in progress on github (sample-windows-bosh-release) for a
release we have been using to test agent features during implementation.
However, this probably won't be very useful or interesting at the moment
since it has not really been designed for public consumption so much as it
has been designed as a tool for the team. Furthermore, because there is
currently no stemcell available currently, it can't be run by anyone
externally yet.

Sorry we don't have more for you yet!

-Steven
