Keynote Address: Scaling Configuration Management Across Data Center and Cloud
Speaker: Ted Zlatanov, CFEngine
The days of large IT organizations and maintaining systems by hand are ending. Today's infrastructure is dynamic, personalized, and malleable. IT infrastructure has become incredibly flexible and complicated as it increasingly uses cloud computing infrastructure in combination with traditional datacenters. To manage such hybrid infrastructures, organizations need configuration management solutions that enable system administrators to deploy and move workloads with ease, without disruption and with consistent behavior across the physical and virtual platforms. Ted will discuss the present and future challenges of managing IT infrastructure and will review scenarios and strategies to scale such hybrid infrastructure from a few to thousands or even millions of nodes, while ensuring reliability and compliance for all nodes throughout their entire lifecycle.
