Old cloud factories are not equipped with tools that are fast or scalable enough for the new, real-time Internet assembly line. Tom Hatch, SaltStack founder and CTO, spent years as a cloud builder / systems administrator and in the process used most of the systems management tools available. But the tools were insufficient for the job at hand. So Tom created Salt from his basement, written in Python, with the idea to create a new breed of open source tools for real-time data center automation, beyond just configuration management. These tools are built for speed and scale and help automate management of the entire data center stack, beyond just development, for real-time infrastructure operations and Web-scale apps. He will show how these new, open source tools are being used by web-scale DevOps teams at LinkedIn, WikiMedia and OpenStack to quickly deploy Web scale.
