Concourse is used within Rackspace on the Managed Pivotal Cloud Foundry to help support the service and meet SLAs. The latest features have been implemented to keep environments and secrets within those environments secure. In this talk, we’ll review how the Rackspace MPCF support team uses Concourse:
- Pipelines based off of C scripts to update individual tiles while still using Opsman.
- To keep secrets encrypted in Vault and integrated into the pipelines.
- To meet SLAs by integrating with Runscope tests.
