Hi all, As part of the WSO2 middleware installation artifacts, we are planning to provide resources for WSO2 product deployments in Pivotal CloudFoundry (PCF)  infrastructure. CloudFoundry (CF) BOSH  releases are expected to be used for provisioning WSO2 product deployments in PCF.
For WSO2 Identity Server, we had implemented a CF BOSH release for single node deployment, prior to this effort. With the growing demand, it was decided to build upon the existing BOSH release implementation, to construct CF BOSH releases for newly refined WSO2 Identity Server deployment patterns. as described in . *Approach:* Following are the changes and new features that were introduced when constructing BOSH releases for WSO2 Identity Server deployment patterns, using the existing BOSH implementation. 1. *BOSH releases with High Availability (HA) clustered deployments*: Introduces HA clustered deployments for WSO2 Identity Server and Identity Server Analytics profiles as part of the deployment patterns. 2. *Removal of bash scripts used for managing the BOSH release*: In the previous implementation, a set of bash scripts were used to manage the BOSH release. These scripts concentrated on managing the BOSH release in a local BOSH Lite  environment. Ideally, a BOSH release can be created and deployed on any infrastructure supported by CF BOSH. Upon analysis of existing BOSH release implementations, it was identified that general instructions for BOSH release management on any infrastructure have been provided in readme documentation. Hence, it was identified that users are more familiar with following instructions provided in readme documentation than using a script, for managing the BOSH release. As a result, it was decided to remove the bash scripts. Please see  for an example readme document. 3. *Refinements to existing implementation*: The existing implementation of the BOSH release needed significant refinements. Please see  for GitHub issues specifying these refinements. 4. Currently, the releases have been tested in a local BOSH environment (e.g. BOSH Lite). Testing on a cloud environment (e.g. an AWS BOSH environment) is in progress. The following diagram depicts the BOSH release deployment of WSO2 Identity Server deployment pattern 2 . As depicted in the below diagram, during a deployment the BOSH release, deployment manifest and the stemcell will be provided to the BOSH Director (via the BOSH CLI), which in turn will perform the deployment . You will be able to try out the latest BOSH release for WSO2 Identity Server deployment patterns from . Your ideas and concerns are highly appreciated. : https://pivotal.io/platform : http://bosh.io/ : https://docs.wso2.com/display/IS541/Deployment+Patterns : https://bosh.io/docs/bosh-lite : https://github.com/wso2/pivotal-cf-is/blob/master/patte rn-1/bosh-release/README.md : https://github.com/wso2/pivotal-cf-is/issues?q=is%3Aissue+is%3Aclosed : https://docs.wso2.com/display/IS541/Setting+Up+Deployment+Pattern+2 : https://bosh.io/docs/deployment.html : https://github.com/wso2/pivotal-cf-is -- Yours sincerely, *Chiranga Alwis* Software Engineer | WSO2 *Mobile : *+94775930497 *Email: *chirangaal...@gmail.com *LinkedIn: *https://lk.linkedin.com/in/chiranga-alwis-391342a9 *Medium:* https://medium.com/@chirangaalwis <http://wso2.com/signature>
