This video (6:53) is based on the blog post here and demonstrates the process for creating a private installation of Cloud Foundry. Having a private cloud is helpful for debugging before deploying on a public cloud. It is also necessary if we want to add a new runtime or framework to Cloud Foundry. We start by creating a new virtual machine in VMware Fusion with Ubuntu 10.04, add a few necessary packages (including Java!), then install Cloud Foundry. Then from the client we “push” a trivial Ruby Sinatra application and observe that two instances of the application are deployed on the server. We will use this private cloud for subsequent projects.
