Google KF Migration
The Replacement for Pivotal Cloud Foundry
What is Google KF?
Google KF is a Google project designed to be a migration tool for application workloads originating from Tanzu Application Service (aka Pivotal Cloud Foundry) to Kubernetes
- KF runs CF workloads natively on GKE
- Runs on any cloud provider via Anthos
Why Should I Use Google KF?
- To eliminate platform licensing fees
- To migrate my application workloads to Kubernetes
- To minimize developer efforts in migrating applications to Kubernetes
- To maintain a unified developer experience post migration
- To minimize the time to migrate my applications to Kubernetes
- To migrate my workloads from on-prem to the public cloud
How does it work? And, How much does it cost me?
Google KF is a Cloud Foundry replacement deployed on Kubernetes (GKE)
- KF is installed on GKE
- GKE runs on Google Cloud Platform
- GKE, via Anthos, also runs on AWS, Azure, VSphere, and Bare Metal
- The main change for developers is that they have to change their CF commands to KF commands
- Or simply alias the cf cli to the kf cli
- Google KF has no licencing costs
What is the process for migrating?
- Month 1: Assess workloads for feasibility
- Months 2-3: Proof of Concept and sample migration
- Months 3-12: Migrate all apps to KF on Kubernetes
- Months 12-48: Transform to your applications to the desired future state
