Orchestrating bare metal with SaltStack and open source technologies

Orchestrating bare metal with SaltStack and open source technologies

Patrick Swartz, SUSE

Bare metal recovery, whether on physical or virtual machines is a challenge. It is even more difficult to maintain images while changes are continually happening. Using SaltStack States, Beacons and Reactors makes this process much easier to maintain. Using these orchestration abilities, along with other open source tools provides the ability to backup and recover, or duplicate a system using the most recent image and avoids rebuilding. This session will cover a real world example from a SaltStack & SUSE customer Learn how to: Use seemingly simple open source applications together to create a powerful recovery solution Combine beacons and reactors to fully automate processes Get creative with beacons.
