How Airship is helping transform customer Clouds

OpenStack has been around long enough that many enterprises are taking advantage of it to manage production workloads running on bare metal, virtual machines, and containers. This increase in adoption for production workloads means that life-cycle management is more important than ever, to ensure that deployment, scaling, and upgrades are simplified for this software-defined infrastructure.

The Airship provides a way for enterprises to manage their software-defined infrastructure as code, using declarative statement to handle deployments, updates, and life-cycle, without the need to develop unique (and complex) orchestration tools. Added to a containerized Openstack control plane, Airship can fit seamlessly into an organisation's existing DevOps or GitOps workflow.   

In this session, we will explore and demo how Airship enables sysadmins to manage OpenStack as immutable infrastructure, based on lessons learned from real-life customer environments.

What can I expect to learn?

At the end of this session, attendees should be able to see how sysadmins can use Airship as their life cycle manager for openstack. Demonstration and explanation will be provided.
