Finding a suitable deployment environment

 

In this new series on my blog, we'll look at a few different deployment frameworks (as alternatives to Beehive).

VMWare just released their new CloudFoundry framework to the Open-Source world. Obviously, I'm pretty interested in application deployment, so this clearly piqued my interest.

More will follow when I get more experience with CloudFoundry, but here's a quickstart to get your CloudFoundry cloud started with Vagrant and Chef in one command. Enjoy!

git clone git://github.com/auser/cloudfoundry-quickstart.git
cd cloudfoundry-quickstart
bundle install
vagrant init
vagrant up

Or, for the incredibly lazy

git clone git://github.com/auser/cloudfoundry-quickstart.git
cd cloudfoundry-quickstart
./quickstart
