Automating Orchestration in the Cloud with Ubuntu Juju
Charles Butler, Canonical
Most of you have automated your deployments. But how does it stand up to the bus factor? How reusable is your automation solution? Do you find yourself wrestling more with the annoyances of scaling than deploying your actual services?
Service orchestration is now the easiest, most flexible, and most approachable solution to shipping your infrastructure woes to /dev/null. Starting with Ubuntu’s 14.04 LTS release, our suite of devops tools are baked right into the base Ubuntu Server installation.
In this session, we'll quickly go over the basic concepts of Juju and spend the rest of the time walking through explicit examples of Juju in action. We'll look at stacks of services managed by Juju and the charms behind those services.
We'll talk about how to get you up and running quickly with multi-sharded MongoDB clusters, Hadoop, Cassandra, and more in just a few commands. All ready to be deployed and reused to meet your needs.
Be ready with questions... What's the point? Which problems was it created to solve? What's it really look like? What about my existing Puppet/Chef infrastructure? What is a Juju charm anyway? Do I need to go to charm school to get started?
