Landscape Deep Dive - Managing Ubuntu and Building an OpenStack Cloud in 30 minutes.
Landscape is Canonical's systems management tool for Ubuntu. Meant to
be easy to use whether you are managing ten desktops or 1,000 servers,
it is scalable, intuitive to users with Ubuntu or Debian experience,
and full featured - covering system provisioning, software/hardware
inventories, monitoring, scripting, configuration and profiles, as
well as (of course) software and update management, including
reporting to facilitate your compliance/governance reporting. A full
API exposes all functionality to Python scripting, and the newest
additions include OpenStack deployment and monitoring functionality.
As part of the demo, we will build a fully operational 10-node
OpenStack Cloud while the talk is advancing. Towards the end of the
talk, the cloud will be up and running, and we will kick the tires and
show the complete architecture and tools plugged into the system,
including Horizon, Juju, and more.
We will demo Landscape hands-on and examine all functionality, and
discuss in detail how landscape works underneath. We will start with
updates and advance to package holds and rollback. We will keep the
marketing to a minimum, the idea is to give you a well-rounded
demonstration of what the tool can do, and how.
Federico Lucifredi is the Ubuntu Server Product Manager at Canonical,
and the maintainer of 'man'.
