Event description


Why this training?

This four-day course is an in-depth primer on building and operating Cloud Foundry clusters with BOSH as well as a deep dive into deployment, configuration, and management of Cloud Foundry installations.

Students will gain experience in deploying BOSH and Cloud Foundry. From here, the course expands on working with orgs and spaces, quotas, and security groups within Cloud Foundry and covers advanced usage of the Cloud Foundry CLI.

Day three and four are dedicated to exploring topics related to HA deployments, buildpacks, CF CLI plugins, and interaction between the BOSH Director and a BOSH Agent.

Who should attend?

DevOps engineers responsible for building and operating the Cloud Foundry platform and seeking a deep understanding and a better knowledge of:

  • the Cloud Foundry platform

  • Cloud Foundry components

  • how to use Cloud Foundry in operations

Course objectives
