A Smooth Path to Cloud Foundry on Containers [B] - Jan von Löwenstein, SAP

Cloud Foundry (CF) has been running apps in containers from the beginning. However, CF itself is deployed with BOSH on virtual machines. At the same time, we see more and more
services outside of CF being deployed on container platforms, such as Mesos or Kubernetes.

We love BOSH, but apparently, container schedulers have advantages over VMs.
How do you deploy a CF based product with additional services on Kubernetes?
Others want to take BOSH out of the equation.
We want to preserve it.
Thus, we take a more evolutionary than revolutionary approach.

In this talk, we show how to deploy regular BOSH releases without modifications using a naive Kubernetes CPI https://github.com/SAP/bosh-kubernetes-cpi-release. We discuss the obstacles we encountered on the way and the current limitations of the CPI. Furthermore, we would like to start a discussion about how to evolve BOSH to overcome some of the current limitations and make container platforms just another deployment choice.
