Video Q&A: Aaron Peterson and Kevin Gray on self-healing infrastructure

6

Damon Edwards / 

At LISA 2010, I caught up with Aaron Peterson (Opscode) and Kevin Gray (Dyn) after they gave a very interesting presentation/demo called “DevOps Gameday“.

From the title, I think a number of attendees were expecting to see the standard Dev to Ops promotion/deployment of code that is so common to the DevOps discussion. Instead the presenters (Opscode, Zenoss, Dyn Inc.) focused on what happens when you have a failure after the code has been deployed. This demo was about self-healing infrastructure… breaking a multi-node system and having it heal itself.

Of course, this kind of canned demo isn’t all that new in the vendor world. However, what is very interesting about their efforts is they want to capture the best practices required to do it and share the code with the world through their combined project (hosted on GitHub). 

If they fulfill the mission of their open project, it’s exactly the kind of “here is how you can do what the big players do” sharing that is good for our industry.

    Thanks for the video. It actually is helpful to hear what other people are doing when it comes to thinking of how to implement this stuff in your own environment. I'm more focussed on a build/deployment environment than a systems type view of the world, but the ideas are still applicable. Cheers!

    I think various actively present people were hoping to see the standard Dev to Ops promotion/deployment of code that is so normal to the Devops dialog. Rather the moderators (Opscode, Zenoss, Dyn Inc.) concentrated on what happens when you have a disappointment after the code has been conveyed. This demo was about recovering toward oneself base… breaking a multi-hub framework and having it recuperate itselparaphrase this for me

    I do think many delegates were seeking to view the common Dev to be able to Ops promotion/deployment regarding value that is consequently widespread on the DevOps debate. Rather this presenters (Opscode, Zenoss, Dyn Inc. ) aimed at how are you affected if you have an inability as soon as the value has become implemented. This specific trial had been in relation to self-healing infrastructure… breaking a multi-node technique in addition to having the item mend itself.funny games
