What is IBM Cloud Foundry?

IBM Cloud Foundry is an IBM version of the open-source platform designed to make it easier and faster to build, test, deploy, and scale applications. Enterprises can now run Cloud Foundry in a public isolated environment, while natively integrating with other IBM Cloud services, such as AI, Blockchain, IoT, and data tools.

Cloud Foundry Enterprise Environment (CFEE) runs on a Kubernetes service, which reduces complexity by giving development teams a comprehensive set of familiar tools under one management umbrella. CFEE allows IT organizations to safeguard their existing investment in Cloud Foundry, while seamlessly bringing in new skill sets that will lead to building apps that provide contemporary customer experiences.

IBM Cloud Foundry is one of my favorite open-source platforms as a service (PaaS) solution that enables our team to deploy and scale programs without having to manage many servers. I have used other platforms for this purpose but they add complexity to our work. IBM Cloud Foundry is the best option which makes deployment and scaling of applications much easier and more reliable than ever.

We use some of the custom buildpacks provided by the Cloud Foundry community and they are all compatible with IBM Cloud Foundry. By using that, we can develop our applications normally and automate the deployment process with our build tools.

Firm I work with have benefited greatly from the varieties of programming language for easy automating of development process, which you can choose the option of setting up your new project either within your IBM Cloud foundry account, clicking on create new instance, [or] selecting SDK packages which is compatible with your project. If its Flask application you want to push to cloud, you will select Python SDk. For NodeJs or single page Javascript application, you need to select NodeJs SDK. This flexibility in programming language avails us opportunity to pick old and new project in two core major languages.

IBM cloud foundry provides runtimes for a range of programming languages which allows for automating much of the developoment process. Yes, we have benefited from the runtimes provided in the platform. We have leveraged different runtimes python, nodejs, java, go. The buildpacks help with implementing the applications on different runtimes.

We have found the automation to be OK, but not great. We have been able to deploy lots of different types of apps. but have struggled to maintain them in production due to reliability and outages. the cost versus reliability was prohibitive. Automation is nice when it works. However, if you have to spend a lot of time troubleshooting what went wrong and it turns out it is just cloud Foundry failing for no apparent reason, well it is just a waste of time.
