EDB Postgres Service Broker for PCF

Full Lifecycle Database Provisioning to Support Modern Application Development

EDB Postgres is a powerful multi-model database with an ACID compliant object relational core. It can be deployed to many locations including bare metal, virtual machines, and various public and private clouds. The EDB Postgres Service Broker for PCF integrates EDB Postgres databases with Pivotal Cloud Foundry deployments, making it easy for developers to provision (create), bind, unbind and deprovision (delete) database instances on-demand.

How it Works

The EDB Postgres Service Broker for PCF allows developers to provision a database within an existing EDB Postgres database cluster using Pivotal’s App Manager for self-service. The database is automatically created and bound to the application allowing developers to focus on their code rather than on its infrastructure. Each service instance connects to a single database that is secure from other databases on the server.

When a developer binds a service instance to an application, the binding call provisions credentials and delivers them to the application. When a developer unbinds a service instance, the unbinding call disables the database user role if there are no other bindings.

When a developer deletes a service instance, the EDB Postgres Service Broker deprovisions the database and frees all resources.
