JumpCloud CTO, Topher Marie, will be heading out to Boston next month to speak on the topic of server orchestration at the Boston Amazon Web Services Meetup. The event will take place on June 9th, from 6:30 to 8:30 pm, at Threat Stack Inc.
We know you’ve automated spinning up new servers as well as configuring those servers with your applications. You are well versed with AWS, Chef, Puppet, and the like. But, what about those manual admin tasks that happen after your servers are up and configured? What about multi-step operational tasks to make sure that your databases are operating properly, that you’ve indexed everything properly, or manipulated data for analysis?
Server orchestration and command execution takes many forms for each organization and largely these tasks in the cloud have been done manually. Sure some people script a step or two, but when it comes to scripting a whole workflow, that ends up being far more challenging.
In this talk, Topher will show you how to automate after Chef and Puppet. He’ll show you ways that you can orchestrate with open source tools and give you options on other approaches. He’ll walk through a few examples of how organizations are orchestration critical tasks and provide the code.
