1 - Getting Started Overview
With Kf, you can migrate your Cloud Foundry apps to Kubernetes without changing your developer workflows.
Use the following sections to get started deploying Cloud Foundry apps to Kf.
Get started with a quickstart
Use the quickstart to install Kf and deploy a simple test Cloud Foundry app. This introduces you to the basic steps you’d perform for most app deployments.
Get an introduction to key concepts
For an introduction to the value of Kf, as well as high-level overviews of the technology, see the following documents:
- To learn more about how Kf works, see Kf dependencies and architecture.
- For a side-by-side comparison of Cloud Foundry and Kf components, see Compare Cloud Foundry and Kf services.
- To learn how to use service brokers with Kf, see Service brokers.
- For more information about Kf security design, see the Security overview.
2 - Quickstart
In this quickstart, you will deploy a sample Cloud Foundry app on an existing Kf cluster.
Push an application
The following are required to complete this section:
kfCLI installed and in your path.
You have connected to the Kf Kubernetes cluster:
gcloud container clusters get-credentials CLUSTER_NAME \ --project=CLUSTER_PROJECT_ID \ --zone=CLUSTER_LOCATION
gitCLI installed and in your path.
Create new space:
kf create-space test-space
Target the space:
kf target -s test-space
Push the Cloud Foundry test app
Clone the test-app repo.
git clone https://github.com/cloudfoundry-samples/test-app go-test-app cd go-test-app
Push the app.
kf push test-app
Get the application’s URL.
Open the URL in your browser where you should see the app running.
These steps should return the cluster to the starting state.
Delete the application.
kf delete test-app
Delete the Space.
kf delete-space test-space
