Craig Gardner has worked with SUSE for many years and in various roles. Prior to working directly for SUSE, he played an important role in bringing the SUSE and Novell engineering teams together with common tools and processes. Formerly an engineer, Craig now serves as an engineering manager for SUSE Enterprise Storage (which uses Ceph). He has a long history with and love for the Open Build Service. Beyond SUSE, Craig teaches software engineering courses at Utah Valley University. And he loves linux since Slackware 2.0. Craig has been a valued presenter at SUSECon, openSUSE events, OpenWest, LINUXCon, and at the U.S. National School Board Administration annual conference.
Managing a single system can be troublesome. Managing more than one is nightmare. Keep your systems running as you intend with Configuration Management. There are many choices, each able to satisfy a variety of needs. This presentation will show what can be done with these tools, and compare features among the various tools. And don't forget, SUSE also has a cool new opensource offering in this space: Machinery. When you start using powerful tools like this, the ferocious tigers in your datacenter will bow before you as their master.
