Jason DeTiberus is a Senior Software Engineer with Red Hat where he is currently working on the OpenShift project. Having spent the past decade in a variety of operations and development roles within small business, higher education and now with Red Hat, he has developed a passion for ways to reduce friction within software development and productization pipelines.
In this session, you will see how Red Hat is investing to make elastic scale application hosting infrastructure easy. You will see the use of Docker for the containerization of Microservices and then drill-down into how to provision and manage Docker at scale with Ansible and Kubernetes. With Ansible, you have a powerful solution for provisioning dozens of servers into a new cluster, where Kubernetes then allows you to scale out to hundreds or thousands of Docker containers across that backplane.
Even if you do not need substantial production scaling requirements, Ansible is a fantastic solution for helping you maintain development environments that closely match your production environment.
