Use Terraform to serve Azure Container Service (ACS) orchestration platforms

Azure Container Service (ACS), provides a unique approach to managing containers in the cloud by offering a simple way to scale containers in production through proven open source container orchestration technology. Combining Azure Container Service (ACS) with Terraform allows for greater flexibility and control of the infrastructure plane.

This post is all about this, introducing the terraform-azurerm-acs project.

The terraform-azurerm-acs project is a Terraform module to deploy ACS orchestration technologies  (i.e. DCOSKubernetesSwarm) while provisioning the minimal infrastructure required for them in a controlled and flexible way.

For more information on how to use it along with examples if you please the terraform-azurerm-acs repository.

Enriching Cloud Foundry's marketplace with managed services!

 In today's world of cloud computing "as-a-Service" services has been made possible to minimize operational and infrastructural costs involved in business processes. The cloud services have been able to turn IT operations into an operational expense, instead of a capital expenditure as it used to be considered. These managed services, along with its challenges, introduce new dynamics and possibilities in low cost for a business, often considerably lower than in-house solutions.

Following the hype and the trend of managed services I would like to introduce three new proof-of-concept contributions exposing some of 84codes managed services in Cloud Foundry's marketplace i.e.

           and
For further details please follow the links to access each project's repository.  

NOTE:
  The projects above at present state aim serve as proof-of-concepts and not intended to be used in production.

Ansible-spiff !

 I would like to present and share with the community another weekend-long pet project ansible-spiff!

 Ansible-spiff is a binary module and is written in GoLang and aims to provide integration between ansible and cloudfoundry's declarative BOSH deployment-manifest builder spiff. The first objective is to act as a mechanism to further enable and improve ansible as the cloudfoundry deployment tool. The second objective is to explore golang as the language of choice for module development and further more to serve as a preliminary framework for golang based modules.

Source code can be found at github.com/ipolyzos/ansible-spiff.

P.S contributions are more than welcome
