Cloud deployment and management isn't what it used to be. It's a new world out there, with new environments, new requirements, and new models. Salt has been around since OpenStack Grizzly, but now that the environment is so perfectly suited to the way it works, it's poised to explode onto the scene as never before.

In this webinar, Mirantis Cloud Software Architect and OpenStack Salt PTL Ales Komarek explains Salt and how it fits into the OpenStack ecosystem, including:

  • The model-driven architectures behind how Salt stores topologies and workflows
  • How Salt provides solution adaptability for any custom workloads
  • Infrastructure as Code: How Salt provides not only configuration management, but entire life-cycle management
  • How Continuous Delivery/ Integration/ Management fits into the puzzle
  • How Salt manages and scales parallel cloud deployments that include OpenStack, Kubernetes and others
