The webinar will also include demos on how administrators can use MAAS to discover existing hardware and automate many management tasks, including:

  • Installing, configuring, and monitoring bare metal hardware
  • Install and upgrade firmware, patches, and updates
  • Automated server utilisation and re-utilisation based on need
  • Discovery of compute, network, capabilities, and storage based on server
  • Power on and off servers as needed

By automating these functions MAAS eliminates the extensive manual process required for traditional server operations and allows organisations to become more operationally efficient.  IT customers need to have the flexibility of not ripping and replacing their entire infrastructure to take advantage of the opportunities the cloud offers. This is why new architectures and business models are emerging. Canonical’s MAAS is a mature solution to help organisations to take full advantage of their cloud and legacy hardware investments.
