In complex computing scenarios, creating a holistic or unified update procedure across multiple clouds and hundreds of separate machines feels like an impossible task. And what do you want to do when your systems estate reaches the thousands, is it possible to automate and simplify cloud management so that thousands of systems can be managed as easily as one?
In this latest of our OpenStack Summit seminars, Dean Henrichsmeyer, Engineering Manager for our Landscape group talks about the challenges facing compute-heavy, cloud-based organisations when trying to manage a growing cloud ecosystem. He explains how Landscape has been designed to scale from the outset; able to manage (with ease) up to 40,000 machines. He also talks about the importance of understanding, and responding to milestones in the life-cycle of each cloud. He digs into the intricacies of working with Autopilot and demonstrates how, by putting your OpenStack cloud on Autopilot you can automate the way your cloud evolves using Canonical’s wealth of experience and tools.
