During the past few years we’ve seen how our entire data-center becomes software defined. This include the Compute, Storage, Network and also Configuration. This new data centre is the cloud.
The missing piece in the puzzle:
While this is pretty much old news there is one big thing that is missing in this puzzle and that is the operator itself.
The operator is responsible for running processes such:
* Installation of new apps
* Upgrades and update of new features or patches
* Performance tuning
* Handling failure
* Managing the capacity to meet the scaling demand.
Most of those tasks today involves lots of human intervention. Users who realised that gap try to mitigate that by putting their own custom automation - usually that comes in a form of scripts on-top of the configuration management. Those custom scripts tend to grow fairly quickly to the point where they become unmanageable.
This presentation will introduce how we can use an orchestrator to automate those tasks and by that create a software defined Operator.
