Director of Technical Curriculum


DevOps works best when your servers are no longer special snowflakes requiring individual attention. Instead, you need to learn to treat machines like cows - no names, no distinguishing characteristics, and so on. But how? You've still got to manage DNS, IP addresses, and all that other unique data, right? Join MVP Don Jones for a look at how the big guys like Azure and AWS cattle-ify their servers, speed up management, and make "failing with style" a daily part of their lives.

You will learn:

  • To make servers more generic and less individual
  • Discover how cloud providers treat servers like cattle
  • Find the connection between DevOps and automation
