In the fully-brokered service model, the Cloud Foundry router receives all traffic to apps in the deployment before any processing by the route service. Developers can bind a route service to any app, and if an app is bound to a route service, the Cloud Foundry router sends its traffic to the service.
What is Cloud Foundry router?
The Cloud Foundry Gorouter routes requests to apps by associating an app with an address, known as a route. This is known as a mapping. Use the cf CLI cf map-route command to associate an app and route. Developers can also map an individual app to multiple routes, enabling access to the app from many URLs.
What is the difference between Kubernetes and Cloud Foundry?
As Cloud Foundry Foundation says, “Cloud Foundry is a dollhouse, and Kubernetes is a box of building blocks from which you can create a dollhouse”. Cloud Foundry shares features with Kubernetes but is a higher-level abstraction of cloud-native application deployment.
Is Kubernetes a PaaS?
Kubernetes is not a traditional, all-inclusive PaaS (Platform as a Service) system. Kubernetes aims to support an extremely diverse variety of workloads, including stateless, stateful, and data-processing workloads. If an application can run in a container, it should run great on Kubernetes.
