Automation, Orchestration, Confusion? Taking the Discussion Up the Stack

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Once you've got your OpenStack infrastructure in place, automating and managing application deployment is your next challenge to tackle. In this panel, we'll discuss the tools, approaches and frameworks available for OpenStack based application deployment today.
Questions that we will cover in this panel include:
• What considerations apply to choosing a particular approach or toolset?
• How are specific tools able to complement each other and interoperate?
• What are the advantages/disadvantages of tools that are solely focused on OpenStack and those that support OpenStack among other platforms?
• How significant are standardisation efforts such as TOSCA? How can we practically apply them?
• Will the use of linux containers such as Docker turn the use of existing configuration management obsolete?
• Is there one tool to win them all?

John Yi

Cloud Solution Architect, Rackspace
I'm a Cloud Solutions Architect at Rackspace with a heavy focus on automation of the infrastructure and the DevOps philosophy. My background was as a Unix Administrator but my focus in automation came about during my work with Opsware (now HP Server Automation) as a Professional Services Consultant. From there I worked at WebMD as an Automation Engineer and learned the gospel of Open Source tools like Chef/Puppet and the ideas of DevOps.
