EuregJUG is part of the Pivotal CF Ambassadors program

Published on Aug 21, 2017, Permalink

The EuregJUG-Website runs now for nearly two years on Pivotal Cloud Foundry, a cloud-native platform for deploying and operating modern applications.

Pivotal Cloud Foundry is a hosted instance of Cloud Foundry. We use the Java build-pack to publish our Spring Boot based application, currently it is automatically deployed from either Jenkins or Travis CI.

The backend gives us good insight of all calls into the site, allows nice digging into the logs and plays well with the Spring Boot actuator.

Pivotal Cloud Foundry offers a marketplace with different services. At the moment we use ElephantSQL (a PostgreSQL provider), mLab (a Mongo instance for storing some blobs), Redis Cloud (for caching the rendered asciidoc-posts) and finally Searchly Elasticsearch which is connected through Hibernate search with our entities to provide the link:/archive.

The cost for running on Pivotal Cloud Foundry for most of 2017 has been provided by Aachen based company ENERKO INFORMATIK GmbH. Thanks a lot for that!

I’m very happy to announce that Pivotal will sponsor the site for at least one more year, which they already did in 2016.

The EuregJUG can now call itself Pivotal CF ambassador. If you have any questions, feel free to drop us a line at
