  • Pre-empt introductions with a simple yet powerful statement.Spirit of community and collaboration.
  • Main – Help bootstrap technology groups around Midwest region.Began tech career diving feet first into co-founding ISP, multiple downturns and upturns, multiple generations of Automation technology, 7 yrs Software Eng, 3 yrs leadingApply learning in different contexts – industries, maturity, organizations, cultures

  • Context around “No Assholes”Have respect for others who may be less experienced, have less exposure or maybe just do not learn as fast.Have respect for those who may have limited time and/or realize some topics are not easily conveyed.Mutual Respect
  • Mutual RespectIt’s not so much about just technology but the complete interaction of people, process and technology used.If you can’t get along with people, you are missing a big part of the equation.

  • SALES>Traditional Enterprise Tech VS. “Infrastructure As Code”Give a hint to the fact that this is a config/automation problem specifically, not just a shift in computing architectureThe inflection, caused by scale and complexity pain, is what has accelerated the disruption in how IT is managed. This disruption is “Infrastructure As Code” (IT Service As Code).The next slide goes into more technical depth on why the old model doesn’t work. High Level :Dated technologies limits scalability and functionality (no SaaS). It’s why job scheduling (intro of automation) is not used for most current platforms and technology strategies.In addition, useability (directly impacts productivity) is immediately stale. Most enterprise products do a poor job of representing the data model in the first place let alone keep pace with how IT is managed. As new vendors and platforms come into play which require integration, the gap (breadth and depth) between supporting them becomes bigger.Mapping a data model (rigid, static) to the IT infrastructure limits ability to support new platforms/models. The proliferation of cloud exposes this further.Reached just a handful of large, enterprise customers which inevitably required custom implementations with large professional services bills.
  • TECH-> “Infrastructure As Code” Opscode positionDon’t directly discount or object to other “Infrastructure As Code” platforms. Let the prezo do that subtly, this is a final stake into the legacy enterprise automation platforms. The next section will focus on why Opscode Chef and what makes it unique. Opscode Chef was designed based on previous competitor limitations and is better positioned to evolve with the current tech landscape.Source code – Agile, leveragedev best-practices for managing infrastructure change.Community – Easily support cutting edge tech *now* vs. 15 month releaseNext gen architecture – SaaS, opensource, scalable, API drivenUseability – Declarative programming, representative of domain, flexible yet lower learning curve than *heavy* enterprise app.
  • SALES-> “Infrastructure As Code” Opscode positionObvious, several articles on Oreilly discussing studies and data from companies using “secret sauce” tech which is really “Infrastructure As Code” VS traditional methods including enterprise tech.http://radar.oreilly.com/2007/10/operations-is-a-competitive-ad.html
  • How does this apply to DevOps?So how many people recognize these characters? And I’m not just talking about Spock and Scotty, how many people recognize the traditional IT roles embedded in their behaviors.Metaphor Attribution – Andrew Shafer, now of Rackspace
  • And furthermore, we think these two roles have always pinned dev and ops against each other. Developers are measured based on the output of new functionality they churn out. Create a bunch of features, send them over the wall to Q&A/release/ops who are left to deploy and scale that new functionality while keeping the site up. Ops meanwhile, is really only tasked with just that, with keeping everything running as a sole focus. What is the single most common way to make a running site go down, introduce change…
  • And this is what it looks like. Application and Infrastructure developers and operators check in their code to version control.
  • The commits (once approved) will get picked up by the continuous integration tool (like Jenkins), which will build the code, deploy to a test infrastructure and start testing.
  • That cycle of build, deploy and test repeats until it fails or gets to production. Catching issues and smoketesting your changes well before they get to Production.

DevOps Columbus Meetup Kickoff - Infrastructure as Code DevOps Columbus Meetup Kickoff - Infrastructure as Code Presentation Transcript

  • July 11, 2013 DevOps Columbus Meetup
  • Agenda • 5:30 – 6:00 – Meet, greet, and eat • 6:00 – 6:15 – Welcome, introductions, and agenda • 6:15 – 6:45 – Infrastructure as Code • 6:45 – 7:00 – Meetup group logistics • 7:00 – 7:30 – "Picks, Tips, and Protips" and then wrap-up.
  • “We are at our most productive when we share our thinking. One night of crazy brain-storming over a few beers is more likely to produce more exciting results than 20 years’ solitary study in the lab.” –Professor Howard Trevor Jacobs, Descartes Prize Winner Read more at redmonk.com - http://goo.gl/FEJyI http://redmonk.com/jgovernor/2004/12/15/the-pub-is-the-place-for-creativity-and-innovation/
  • Who am I? “Field Guy” My agenda Bootstrap Meetups Learn more Share experiences with people from diverse backgrounds Introductions … ~ 1m round the room brief intro, don’t be too shy 
  • Who am I? • Linux Engineer • Operations • Performance and Capacity • Software Consulting • Cloud Architect • Opscode • Buckeye, Maroon • @mfdii, michael@opscode.com
  • “Rules of Engagement” 3 Rules of DevOps Meetup
  • 1st Rule: Talk about DevOps Meetup “Rules of Engagement”
  • Collaboration & Community “Rules of Engagement”
  • 2nd Rule: TALK about DevOps Meetup “Rules of Engagement”
  • 3rd Rule: No Assholes “Rules of Engagement”
  • Collaborate and debate NO disrespect “Rules of Engagement”
  • “Rules of Engagement” DevOps = Community
  • DevOps What is DevOps
  • DevOps Development + Operations
  • DevOps = CAMS • Culture • Automation • Measurement • Sharing
  • DevOps is not: • A Job Description • A marketing term • A new product • A problem • A name for a team • Is not just “Development + Operations”
  • “Infrastructure As Code” 101
  • Infrastructure IT is Complex
  • Items of Manipulation (resources) • Nodes • Networking • Files • Directories • Symlinks • Mounts • Routes • Users • Groups • Packages • Services • Filesystems
  • Application See Node
  • Application Application Database See Nodes

  • Traditional Thinking Won’t Make the Grade … Before discussing the future, Let’s review the past. More importantly why “traditional” enterprise technologies will not cut it.
