Traditionally, IT organizations have treated infrastructure components like family pets. We name them, we worry about them, and we let them wake us up at 4:00 am. Amazon CTO Werner Vogels has dubbed these behaviors as server hugging and antiquated in today's cloud infrastructures. In this breakout session, we will discuss methods and methodology to get away from server hugging and be concerned more with the overall status and life of our entire infrastructure. From making use of toss-away-able on-demand infrastructure, to monitoring services and not individual servers, to getting away from naming instances, this session helps you see your infrastructure for what it is, technology that you control.
