How Adobe turned operations into a sevice and built a service delivery platform in the cloud

4

Damon Edwards / 

This video is from Velocity Santa Clara in June 2013. Adobe’s Srinivas Peri and SimplifyOps’ Alex Honor discuss how a packaged software tools group turned itself into an internal provider of operations services. Featured in the presentation is CDOT, the platform they built out of open source tools like Rundeck, Chef, Jenkins, and Zabbix (and non-open source technologies like AWS, Splunk, and PagerDuty) . But Beyond the tools, this is an interesting story of learning how to shift a groups mindset and figuring out what your “customers” want along the way. You can view the slides from this presentation here.

Will Sterling presentation on Rundeck at the April CLUE Meeting (Video)

Damon Edwards / 

Rundeck community member Will Sterling (from Datalogix) did a great presentation introducing Rundeck to the Colorado Linux Users and Enthusiasts meeting in Denver.

Alex Honor posted a helpful writeup on rundeck.org:

If you are new to Rundeck, watch Will Sterling give an introduction to what Rundeck can do and how he uses it to automate work at DataLogix.

Here are some notable quotes:

  • “Multi-tentant command orchestration and process automation with WebGUI, CLI, and RESTful API.”
  • “Target nodes with rich metadata. Never use hostnames again.”
  • “Process automation via multi-step jobs…Options allow users to pick one or more values.”
  • “Rundeck makes everything in the GUI available through the API.”

Besides showing off the basics, Will opened up Eclipse to step through ruby code that talks to Puppet to communicate node information to Rundeck. His code only includes nodes he can ping and have a certain class.

Will also showed off how he uses resty as nice shell based way to access the Rundeck API.

The ecosystem of open source DevOps-friendly tools has experienced explosive growth in the past few years. There are so many great tools out there that finding the right one for a particular use case has become quite easy.

As the old problem of a lack of tooling fades into the distance, the new problem of tool integration is becoming more apprent. Deployment tools, configuration management tools, build tools, repository tools, monitoring tools — By design, most of the popular modern tools in our space are point solutions.

Using Rundeck and Chef to Build DevOps Toolchains at #ChefConf 2012

Anthony Shortland / 

I presented at #ChefConf 2012 in Burlingame last Thursday on using Rundeck and Chef to Build DevOps toolchains.

The heart of the presentation was a demonstration of continuous build and deployment showing Adam Jacob’s chef-rundeck plugin working as a Rundeck resource model source (node provider) and jobs using knife and the Chef server API to manage databag-based application configuration.
