Course Overview
Hi, everyone. My name is Brian McClain, and welcome to my course, Managing Applications with Cloud Foundry. I'm a senior technologist with VMware, and I've been involved with the Cloud Foundry project since it was first announced in 2011. Cloud Foundry is a platform for running your applications in the cloud. Not only is an immense open source project with an amazing community, it's also grown significant enterprise adoption. In this course, we'll take a deep dive into the options you have to manage applications running on the platform. Some of the major topics that we'll cover include different ways to route traffic to your applications, both externally and internally, how you can scale your applications when they need more resources, and the different strategies that you can use to update applications. By the end of this course, you'll be equipped to handle the day‑to‑day operations of your apps in a way tailored to your specific needs. Before beginning this course, you should be familiar with the basics of Cloud Foundry, such as how to push an application and bind services to it. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn more about Cloud Foundry with the Managing Applications with Cloud Foundry course here, at Pluralsight.
