"Driving Operational Tasks through the Continuous World of Today by Eric Van der Poel of Comcast

Location: 18 DEF

In today’s application architecture the focus is to provide a scalable and resilient platform that is designed with zero customer interruptions. Even with continuous deployments of frequent releases, we want to build with a mindset of always available. With the increase of abstraction layers pulled up the stack, it is easy to forget about what the stack is built on within private clouds. There is focus at the application tier but what about the infrastructure it runs on? In this presentation, we will look into the underbelly of private cloud and how their purpose is to provide a cattle farm but its existence is still maintained like a veterinary. We will showcase how we are limiting customer interruptions as we perform upgrades and repairs with CI/CD and Infrastructure as code.
