Introduction to MAAS: building the agile data centre



on 1 December 2017

As more and more applications move to the public cloud, many wonder if it still makes sense to maintain a data centre apart from regulated workloads. In this presentation Andres Rodriguez, MAAS engineering manager, will look into how devops and infrastructure managers can build an agile data centre with a developer agility and a cost base that can compete with public cloud.

In this presentation you will learn:

  • How to build a low cost / high usage smart data centre based on automation
  • Most common use cases best suited for bare metal provisioning
  • How MAAS, Canonical’s server provisioning tool, can be used to build your agile data centre
