Announcing BOSH Cloud Provider Interface for Oracle Cloud Infrastructure

Devin Carlen
Consulting Member of Technical Staff
Today we are pleased to announce our partnership with Pivotal to bring Cloud Foundry to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. Over the past months, we have been working closely with Pivotal and the Cloud Foundry commmunity to develop a BOSH Cloud Provider Interface for OCI.  BOSH is a tool created to deploy Cloud Foundry on a wide variety of infrastructure, and a preview of this is now available.
We have released the BOSH CPI for OCI on GitHub under a dual Apache 2 / UPL license. Dhiraj Mutreja, my colleague at Oracle, is the technical lead for the CPI effort. While this is an early preview release, we are working with the Cloud Foundry community to have it formally certified and we will have more news on that soon.  That said, it works, and it is real, and we are using it every day!
We are also happy to announce today that we have open sourced Terraform configurations for deploying BOSH and Cloud Foundry on OCI. Using the Terraform Provider for OCI, we are able to greatly simplify the task of installing a BOSH Director and Cloud Foundry.
Terraform is a common tool for paving complex infrastructure configurations. Our Terraform configurations for BOSH and Cloud Foundry configure group policies, virtual networks, security lists, and more.  All in all, it creates around 50 artifacts for you, and creates a fault tolerant, multi availability domain setup.  Run the tool and you will have all of this plus a bastion instance to SSH into and using the BOSH 2 CLI to deploy a BOSH Director, and not have to worry about which ports need to be opened on your security lists.
In the coming days, we will be releasing sample BOSH deployment manifests and guides for deploying various systems using BOSH on OCI, including Cloud Foundry, ZooKeeper, Concourse, Consul and more.
