New cloud factories and Internet assembly lines need to be fast and easily scalable. Unfortunately, much of the software traditionally used to build and manage data centers in decades past were never designed for the new speed and scale of the modern infrastructure. Fortunately, SaltStack and other open source tools are now available to provide real-time data center automation and to help deploy and manage the entire enterprise application stack. Colton Myers, a SaltStack core engineer, will show how these new open source tools are being used by infrastructure and DevOps teams at Web-scale organizations like LinkedIn, WikiMedia and Hulu.
Session attendees will learn how to build and maintain Internet, cloud and Web-scale applications using open source software. SysAdmins, cloud architects and anybody with DevOps leanings will appreciate new, easier ways to automate data center infrastructure management and application configuration.
