Astra Service Broker

The Open Service Broker API provides a standard RESTful interface for provisioning services from a provided catalog, such as Astra databases.

Service brokers manage the lifecycle of services. Platforms interact with service brokers to provision, get access to, and manage the services they offer. The Open Service Broker API defines these interactions, allowing us to offer their services to anyone, regardless of the technology or infrastructure those software providers wish to utilize.

The Astra Service Broker provides a bridge between Service Catalogs in Kubernetes and Cloud Foundry with Astra’s DevOps API. Developers provide a YAML describing the Astra database requirements. Automation handles provisioning the instances and bringing the associated connection information back into the platform as configuration values for their application to consume.

The Astra Service Broker supports only Kubernetes v1.13 and later.
