Bootstrapping new infrastructures is the daily work at ungleich. As we are also the creators of cdist, the swiss army knife of configuration management, I will show you in this talk how to setup a multi node Opennebula setup in a couple of minutes.
Furthermore I will talk about how to bootstrap your own infrastructure on someone else’s infrastructure – a cheap way to make your way into hosting business.
Nico Schottelius is a FOSS Hacker, one of the two inventors of the cdist configuration management system and president of ungleich GmbH, the no. 1 Swiss Linux infrastructure company.
While Nico has some strong opinions on software design, he manages to pick the software that “”works”” for real world settings and teaches at universities in computer science.
He manages multitude of hosting infrastructures with Opennebula running on various Linux distributions ranging from CentOS over Debian/Ubuntu to Archlinux – all of them automated with cdist.
