In this RCE Podcast, Brock Palen and Jeff Squyres speak with Mike Place about SaltStack, a fast and scalable systems and configuration management software for predictive orchestration, cloud and data center automation, server provisioning, application deployment and more.
Salt is a Python-based open source configuration management and remote execution application. Supporting the “infrastructure-as-code” approach to deployment and cloud management, it competes primarily with Puppet, Chef, and Ansible.
As a company, SaltStack develops systems management software used by the world’s largest businesses and Web-scale infrastructures for data center automation, hybrid cloud building and orchestration, server provisioning and application configuration management. “We help cloud builders, data center operators and enterprise IT organizations automate the most-difficult and complex cloud management tasks with speed and flexibility required by the most-advanced computing environments. Ultimately, SaltStack is used to manage all the data center things including any cloud, infrastructure, virtualization, application stack, software or code. SaltStack won the Best of VMworld 2014 award for virtualization management, won an InfoWorld 2014 Technology of the Year Award, won the 2013 GigaOm Structure LaunchPad competition, and was named a Gartner 2013 Cool Vendor in DevOps.”
