Provisioning Linux Servers Made Easy: PayPal's Success - Mason Katz, StackIQ

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

Today's distributed systems built with commodity servers allow enterprises to seize new data and cloud opportunities with a speed and agility unattainable by their legacy system predecessors, and at a lower cost. However, getting a handful, hundreds or even thousands of collaborative servers up and running in a production environment is complicated, time consuming and error prone. By automating bare metal provisioning, enterprises eliminate complexity and speed deployment. Mason Katz will examine the installation and provisioning process for Linux servers in infrastructures of any size, from the zero state to configuration, utilizing StackIQ's server provisioning tool. Whether for a single node or thousands of nodes, attendees will learn how to get systems to a ping and a prompt in minutes, and get the most out of today's Big Data and Cloud applications.
