Rafael Saavedra, VP Engineering at RightScale, led this session at the RightScale User Conference 2010 in Santa Clara.
Session Abstract: Just like our customers, RightScale runs in the cloud and requires the best platform to automate operations. As such, RightScale uses RightScale to manage RightScale. Our complete infrastructure – development, testing, staging, and production – consists of servers that are configured, launched and managed by the RightScale Platform. In this talk, we'll present insights into how our different systems are set up and managed through the RightScale dashboard, how we organize the different production deployments, how we roll out major and minor upgrades to our infrastructure, and what best practices we follow during normal and emergency operations.
