Avoiding Infrastructure At Rest - the Power of Immutable Infrastructure

Keeping up with patches has never been more critical.  For hardware, that's... hard.  What if servers were deployed 100% ready to run without any need for remote configuration or access?  What if we were able to roll a complete rebuild of an entire application stack from the BIOS up in minutes.  Those are key concepts behind a cloud deployment pattern called "immutable infrastructure"  because the servers are deployed from images produced by CI/CD process and destroyed after use instead of being reconfigured.  

We'll cover the specific process and it's advantages.  Then we'll dive deeply into open tools and processes that make it possible to drive immutable images into your own infrastructure.  The talk will include live demos and go discuss process and field challenges that attendees will likely face when they start implementation at home.  We'll also cover the significant security, time and cost benefits of this approach to make pitching the idea effective.


What can I expect to learn?
