While setting up PCF in my home lab I noticed a quirk. You have to create a network to be used and specify a subnet for PCF to assign IPs from. Personally I would rather specify a range rather than a whole subnet. As a result you have to exclude out ranges that might be used by other VMs/Systems/Devices on your network. I did so for different subnets and stopped at .254 knowing that .255 is the broadcast address for that subnet. Whooops I think I found a bug, because any other software would know not to use the broadcast address. Time to ping my mates at Pivotal.
My first post here and its a survey to gauge what are people doing about running apps in the cloud. Are you embracing cloud native apps and micro-services? Its only a handful of questions and no sales person is going to contact you. I promise:
Welcome to this new blog. I am a veteran blogger in the virtualisation space but I started to reskill in Cloud Native technologies like Cloud Foundry and Docker. So I decided to start blogging about my experience. Watch this space for education and interesting bits on Cloud Native tech.
