Unmanaged Service Broker. Connects to an externally managed database, for example, unmanaged Service Broker for your existing DSE. The new unmanaged service broker enables developers to create access, on their own, to an external DSE cluster. Developers can now share the same DSE cluster to achieve economies of scale when a dedicated cluster is not required. Different service plans can be created to correspond different user roles and associated permissions such as read or read-and-write access, etc. on objects inside DSE. This is a crucial feature when more than one developers are sharing a single DSE cluster from resource allocation and security standpoints.
Pivotal Cloud Foundry - Managed (on-demand) Service Broker for DSE. Ask about early access to this service. The managed service broker implements the Pivotal Cloud Foundry service broker APIs as HTTP/HTTPS endpoints. It is an official and standard way to integrate third-party technologies to the Pivotal Cloud Foundry platform. The create-service interface implementation creates a new DSE cluster on demand using BOSH. BOSH is the Cloud Foundry orchestration tool for installing and managing software and virtual machines. The entire lifecycle of a DSE cluster is taken care of by BOSH, from provisioning, running to decommissioning. Resources used by a cluster will be returned to a centralized resource pool upon termination. This broker makes transient DSE cluster possible. It is a true enabler for continuous integration when a short-lived DSE cluster is all you need.
