How to Use MS SQL Server with Cloud Foundry v2 (New Service Broker Available)
We’ve just finalized the .NET Cloud Foundry Service, a Microsoft .NET-based service broker that provides a possibility to use MS SQL Server with Cloud Foundry v2. The broker allows for easy developing and deploying Cloud Foundry services using the Microsoft technology stack. For example, you can quickly add support for unsupported databases, since you only need to implement a single interface.
Right now, the broker is distributed with one default service implementation (MS SQL Server). Below is a step-by-step video and tutorial on how to install and use it for your project.
Before you start, make sure that you have the Cloud Foundry Command Line Interface. Installation instructions are available here. Alternatively, you can use the GCF client, which is a more up-to-date version of the CF tool. Then follow the steps below.
1. Installing the .NET Cloud Foundry Service Broker
2. Registering the .NET Service Broker in Cloud Foundry
3. Making your plan public (Before using the service, you have to register at least one service plan as public.)
4. Getting your service up and running
5. Deploying and running an application with the new services
Now the application is ready to use the new service.
6. Removing service bindings from your application
We are also planning to implement sharded deployment and reshape the cluster. Follow @altoros to get updated.No Comments
