The OpenStack meeting lightening talk is only 5 minutes, so the deck is mostly pictures that support points around a more detailed followup.

hardware faults are common,manual steps are impractical and small costs add up quickly.
Included in the preso are concepts I introduced at Flatness at the Edge.
