Pivotal's Windows Experience team has been working hard to improve the Windows Operator Experience. The early days of Windows Diego cell installation involved a series of MSI installers, command line install generator utilities, and PowerShell scripts. Automation was difficult and error prone. We learned a lot from our experience in decomposing BOSH releases into their component parts, and distributing MSI installers. Just over a year ago, we embarked on an effort to port the BOSH agent to Windows. In this talk, we'll discuss what we learned when porting the BOSH agent to Windows, and the choices we made when designing the interface for Windows BOSH releases. We'll also discuss the benefits we found in moving to BOSH, instead of maintaining an alternative installation mechanism like MSI installers.
