Cloud Foundry is a Platform-as-a-Service platform that lets you deploy Spring, Grails, Rails and Node.js applications in the cloud. We’ve already shown in previous blog posts how you could easily create Tropo-powered Grails applications with Tropo’s Grails webapi plugin. However, in this blog post I’m going to show you an screencast in which you will learn how to deploy your applications to CloudFoundry.
As you will see in the screencast, deploying your Tropo applications with Grails to CloudFoundry is really easy. A few commands and you get your application not only in one, but in two cloud platforms!! So, you’ve got on one hand Tropo’s cloud platform which lets you run voice powered applications that can quickly scale and on the on the other hand you run all the business logic in CloudFoundry’s cloud platform. So you don’t have to worry about server and resources provisioning and you can take advantage of CloudFoundry’s infrastructure to scale.
So, here is the screencast:
