why is hardware hard? Ready State Physical Ops Meetup on Tuesday 12/2 9am PT

meh.  Compared to cloud, Ops on physical infrastructure sinks.physical outlet

Unfortunately, the cloud and scale platforms need to run someone so someone’s got to deal with it.  In fact, we’ve got to deal with crates of cranky servers and flocks of finicky platforms.  It’s enough to keep a good operator down.

If that’s you, or someone you care about, join us for a physical ops support group meetup on Tuesday 9am PT (11 central).

There is a light at the end of the tunnel!  We can make it repeatable to provision OpenStack, Hadoop and other platforms.

As a community, we’re steadily bringing best practices and proven automation from cloud ops down into the physical space.   On the OpenCrowbar project, we’re accelerating this effort using the ready state concept as a hand off point for “physical-cloud equivalency” and exploring the concept of “functional operations” to make DevOps scripts more portable.

Join me and Rafael Knuth for a discussion about how operators can work together to break the cycle.
