||Application Programming Interface
|Availability Zone (AZ)
||A functionally independent segment of network infrastructure, often correlated with geographical region, designated to increase availability and fault-tolerance. A cloud operator can select or assign AZs on platforms such as AWS and vSphere.
||BOSH is an open framework for managing the full development and deployment life cycle of large-scale distributed software applications.
||Command Line Interface
||A domain is a domain name like
shared-domain.example.com. Domains can also be multi-level and contain sub-domains like the “myapp” in
myapp.shared-domain.example.com. Domain objects belong to an org and are not directly bound to apps.
||An archive within Cloud Foundry that contains the application ready to run on Diego. A droplet is the result of the application staging process.
||Services provided by third-parties, but integrated into Cloud Foundry through APIs so that Cloud Foundry users can provision reserved resources and credentials on demand. Also called Custom Services.
||You can manage spaces and orgs with the Cloud Foundry Command Line Interface (cf CLI), the Cloud Controller API, and the Cloud Foundry Eclipse Plugin.
||An org is the top-most meta object within the Cloud Foundry infrastructure. Only an account with administrative privileges on a Cloud Foundry instance can manage its orgs.
||A route, based on a domain with an optional host as a prefix, may be associated with one or more applications. For example,
myapp is the host and
shared-domain.example.com is the domain when using the route
myapp.shared-domain.example.com. It is possible to have a route that represents
shared-domain.example.com without a host. Routes are children of domains and are directly bound to apps.
||A “factory” which produces service instances.
||A reserved resource provisioned by a service. The resource provisioned will differ by service; could be a database or an account on a multi-tenant application.
||An org can contain multiple spaces. You can map a domain to multiple spaces, but you can map a route to only one space.
||The process in Cloud Foundry by which the raw bits of an application are transformed into a droplet that is ready to execute.
||User Account and Authentication Service, which provides the technological basis for Dashboard Single Sign-On available to Cloud Foundry users when accessing pertinent Managed Services.
||The mechanism for containerization on Diego that ensures applications running on Cloud Foundry have a fair share of computing resources and cannot access either the system code or other applications running on Diego.
