Last minute talk at the Linux User Group/Kernel Panic User Group. I'll be walking through some new (Terraform) as well as the OpenStack tutorial from last month for those of you that didn't make it.
An overview on using Terraform to build Linux web servers across multiple data center providers. This involves using code to manage infrastructure across two data center providers (Digital Ocean and AWS). We'll be launching and scaling Linux web servers across these two providers including dynamic IP addressing, load balancing, and DNS setup. Terraform is an open source technology from the same makers as Vagrant and Packer.
The infrastructure code for this deployed environment is available at:
The second is a less code more GUI tutorial on how to dynamically handle manage a pool of Linux based web servers using a public OpenStack cloud provider. This includes dynamically moving workloads between servers as you take them up/down as well as load balancing. This is primarily done through the OpenStack web GUI with some bash command lines to configure the web servers. All the steps for the lab are available at the following:
