Product Description

Architecture

Services are integrated with Cloud Foundry by implementing a documented API for which the cloud controller is the client. Service Broker is the term used to refer to a component of the service which implements the service broker API. Service brokers advertise a catalog of service offerings and service plans, as well as interpreting calls for provision (create), bind, unbind, and deprovision (delete). What a broker does with each call can vary between services; in general, ‘provision’ reserves resources on a service and 'bind’ delivers information to an application necessary for accessing the resource. The reserved resource is called a Service Instance. What a service instance represents can vary by service; it could be a single database on a multi-tenant server, a dedicated cluster, or even just an account on a web application.
