June General Meeting

Configuration Management Tools in the Enterprise

Speaker: Pat Valentine, Sr. Systems Administrator, Cloud Automation and Engineering, IHS

Pat Valentine will speak about the initial investigation of Configuration Management tools in the Enterprise. IHS Inc. is moving towards a more agile DevOps environment and has just completed an evaluation of these products (Chef, Puppet, Ansible, SaltStack, Cfengine). We have gone through a Proof of Concept and I should be able to share our decision at the meeting.

Pat has been investigating automation/orchestration within the context of hardware deployment (bare metal ESXi/UCS Director), server deployment (VMware/Configuration Management), Software Defined Networks (NSX, Cisco) and storage provisioning (NetApp WFA/VMware).

IHS has over 400 products and a development group of around 1500 developers. Development drives the adoption of new technologies and our IT mandate is to provide service with value to our product development teams while still providing configuration management (drift) and secure (CIS Benchmark) environments for both private and sensitive information.

Pat Valentine has been providing UNIX and Linux system administration for over 15 years. Working as a junior admin at a local ISP, to the University of Calgary, Faculty of Medicine to IHS Inc. has provided experience with Solaris (6-11), TRU-64, HP-UX, RHEL (2-7), CentOS, OpenBSD, Ubuntu and AWS. His other hats include Data Centre Administrator, Change Management Leader, Network Admin, Storage Admin and all around handy guy.
