Puppet is an enterprise systems management platform that standardizes the way you deploy and manage infrastructure in the enterprise and the cloud.
By the end of the tutorial we’ll produce a simple Puppet architecture that can manage a few services and applications as well as discuss best practices and common design patterns.
Chef is a powerful open source system integration framework, built to bring the benefits of configuration management to the entire infrastructure. This tutorial will cover key concepts and how to get started using Chef to manage systems and integrate them together to build fully automated infrastructure.
Vagrant is a tool for building and distributing virtualized development environments. It uses VirtualBox combined with configuration management to deliver fast and portable development and testing environments. I'll demonstrate how to use Vagrant and Puppet to easily build environments that you can deploy (and re-deploy) to developers and testers.
The OpenStack project was launched last summer during OSCON by Rackspace, NASA, and a number of other cloud technology leaders in an effort to build a fully-open cloud computing platform. It is a collection of scalable, secure, standards-based projects consisting of compute, storage, images, and more. This session will introduce the projects, the principles behind it, and how to get started.
This session will demonstrate an example scenario from Janrain and discuss the implications, benefits, and pitfalls of moving to a utility cloud computing architecture from a traditional co-located hosting environment.
