This talk provides an overview of Heat, a peek inside the CloudFormation template language, and a live demonstration of heat technologies. Heat provides an Apache 2 licensed CloudFormation orchestration engine that orchestrates cloud infrastructure resources such as storage, networking, instances, and applications into a repeatable running environment for OpenStack IAAS platforms. Heat also provides several advanced features such as authentication, nested stacks, high availability, and auto-scaling which are demonstrated.
The audience will learn how Heat applies to OpenStack cloud environments using repeatable orchestration templates. OpenStack Summit attendees can learn about the emerging CloudFormation template standard and its impact on Linux and open source cloud communities. A speaker experienced with live demonstrations makes the medium technical difficulty approachable through real-life examples.
