Thomas Hatch, SaltStack CTO, and Sam Smith, SaltStack director of product development, introduce SaltStack RAET as a new alternative transport medium developed specifically with SaltStack infrastructure automation and configuration management in mind. SaltStack built RAET for customers needing substantial speed and scale to automate management of massive data center infrastructure environments.
SaltStack RAET is primarily an async communication layer over truly async connections, defaulting to UDP. The SaltStack RAET system uses CurveCP encryption by default. SaltStack users can now leverage substantial flexibility via either Salt SSH, ØMQ, or RAET to best address numerous use cases.
