Multi-Cloud MineCraft! Minecraft + Docker + CloudFoundry + vSphere + RackHD + ScaleIO = Awesomeness

Minecraft + Docker + CloudFoundry + vSphere + RackHD + ScaleIO = Awesomeness

Peter Blum

If you didn’t know, VMworld begins next week! Here at the Dojo we thought we would show you a cool project we’ve been working on. MINECRAFT in the cloud!!

With all the clouds out there, both public and private, we wanted to bridge the gap between them. We took a public vSphere cloud and a private bare metal cloud, and layered CloudFoundry ontop. Then with a simple CF push we spin up a Minecraft server from a Docker image. Hmm don’t know if I could put more buzz words into a sentence if I tried…anyhow check it out!

Big shout out to VMWare, RackHD, RexRay, Libstorage, and of course CloudFoundry for helping us make it possible. Also here is a link to our Github (https://github.com/EMC-Dojo/CloudFoundry-MineCraft) where you can find the Docker Image that you can run inside cloudFoundry for your own private Minecraft server.

Cloud Foundry. Open Source. The Way. EMC [⛩] Dojo.

How to Deploy Diego in a Hybrid Environment Deploying Cloud Foundry Diego in a Virtual and Bare Metal Environment

Deploying Cloud Foundry Diego in a Virtual and Bare Metal Environment

In my last post “Deploying Cloud Foundry in a Hybrid Environment“, I showed you how to deploy DEA runners in a bare-metal environment. However, Cloud Foundry now has new and exciting Diego runtime! So now I will guide you through how to deploy Diego Cells on bare metal machines. When we’re all done, your environment will look like this:

How to Deploy Cloud Foundry in a Virtual & Bare Metal Hybrid Environment Deploying Cloud Foundry on VSphere and Bare Metal

Deploying Cloud Foundry on VSphere and Bare Metal

This is a guide for setting up Cloud Foundry in a hybrid environment with virtualization and bare-metal infrastructure. Cloud Foundry is made up of many components. It makes sense to run most of them in a virtual environment for resource sharing and separation reasons. And these pieces might not require the resources for an entire physical machine all to itself.

Computing components, such as DEA Runner or Diego Cells, should run on Bare-Metal to fully make use of the computing power, without spending resources for your virtualization tier.

This tutorial will guide you step by step, to set up Cloud Foundry components on vSphere
and DEA Runner on Bare-Metal machines. When you finish, your environment will look like this:
