SaltStack is a software platform to manage system configuration. It aims at fast and scalable automation of any cloud and application stack, or data center infrastructure. In a common use model, sysadmins and devops use SaltStack to automate configuration management and cloud service orchestration.
This talk will cover SaltStack concepts including execution modules, functions, and configuration management, e.g., states and formulas. In addition to demonstrating a simple cloud service (instances of REST API, cache, database, and service discovery), the speaker will also discuss state-of-the-art cloud service practices.
