Pivotal Cloud Foundry Service Broker for AWS

Simplifying AWS for PCF Developers

The Service Broker for AWS enables developers to quickly create AWS resources including S3 buckets, RDS databases, Aurora, DynamoDB and SQS queues without requiring AWS credentials. Simply selecting a service plan that's preconfigured by IT operations. From there, it's easier to comply with enterprise policies on encrypted communication, encrypted storage, and backups.

Easily Deploy AWS Services

One service broker installs all the AWS services and uses AWS IAM controls for security; developers can create resources with one Pivotal Cloud Foundry CLI command.

Operator Control of Service Plans

Pre-configured service plans for ease-of-deployment are customizable by the operator who can also apply global or service-specific policy settings.

Automatic Tagging

AWS resources are automatically tagged so that cost management can be managed; tags can be customized.
