MySQL for Pivotal Cloud Foundry

The Easy Way to Provide Enterprise-Ready MySQL to Your Developers

MySQL for Pivotal Cloud Foundry provides a relational database-as-a-service for developers that is fully compatible with MySQL. Developers get self-service access to a database, designed to fit today’s automated developer workflows. Operators can enjoy the automation and sophisticated integration of the service into the Pivotal Cloud Foundry platform.

Provide Self-Service Access to Developers

Developers can spawn dedicated on-demand instances of MySQL for new and replatformed applications without operator intervention. The service works the same in any cloud.

Automate Database Operations in Developer Workflows

Automated provisioning supports database testing and deployment in stateless, continuous integration and delivery pipelines such as Concourse.

Support Entire Cloud-Native Developer Organizations

Take advantage of significant automation for operator and developer lifecycles. Install, manage, monitor, and update MySQL in Pivotal Cloud Foundry. Ensure deployments meet enterprise requirements.

Percona Server Overview

MySQL is the world’s most popular open source database. It is a relational database based on Structured Query Language (SQL) and is used in a wide variety of applications. MySQL for Pivotal Cloud Foundry provisions databases based on Percona Server—a backwards-compatible replacement for MySQL® 5.7. Percona Server aims to retain close compatibility to the official MySQL releases, while providing superior performance and increased visibility into server operations.

Integration Features

Create and destroy service instances on demand as required.

Automate periodic backups and allow for restoring from a backup if needed.

Operators can customize service plan definitions to support internal chargeback packages and enforce resource constraints.

Plan migrations. Developers can resize deployments by changing their service plans as needed and resource requirements change.

The service is documented with instructions for setup and operation.

Encryption in motion. Data transmitted between app and service are encrypted when service is deployed in IPSEC-configured environment.

Get visibility into details of service operation through standard monitoring and logging tools for products and Pivotal Cloud Foundry. Receive alerts about detected problems faster problem resolution.

Quotas. Operators can place limits on service instance counts.

Uses smoketests to automatically verify that basic functionality is live during instantiation.


How it Works

Operators download the service and install on their Pivotal Cloud Foundry installations. Once the service is successfully installed and configured, the exposed service plans are made available to developers through the Service Marketplace.

  • MySQL for PCF offers on-demand, dedicated instance plans.
  • On-Demand plans are operator-configured and enabled. Once enabled, application developers can provision a MySQL instance from a plan.
  • Developers can create and destroy instances and bind and unbind them to their applications via the App Manager or cf CLI.
  • Operators can configure periodic full backups to storage of their choosing. Operators can restore data to specific instances as needed.
  • Operators can automatically update all deployed service instances to latest version of software when updating MySQL for PCF to a new version.

The MySQL for Pivotal Cloud Foundry service is available on the Pivotal Network.
