Storage, System and Infrastructure deployment automation using Open Source DevOps Tools (Ansible and Vagrant)

[email protected]




As most of the IT organization is emerging towards the adoption of DevOps methodologies, it is imperative to deploy and destroy the infrastructure in quick time with an advance level of automation so that an organization can spend more time and focus on the development of their respective product, rather than investing time/manpower for making the infrastructure for development and testing. In this talk, we will learn and demonstrate few of the open source automation tools, like Ansible and Vagrant which can be used very effectively for system and storage infrastructure deployment automation and provisioning. The talk will also highlight few of the unique use cases, which can be used smartly for IaaS, PaaS and SaaS cloud service deployment.

Learning Objective 1: Brief about DevOps and its methodology

Learning Objective 2: Introduction to Open Source automation tools (Vagrant and Ansible)

Learning Objective 3: Use Case – Smart automation for IaaS deployment using OpenSource

Learning Objective 4: Demo – Automation of Storage, System and Infrastructure Deployment for hosting a web service using Ansible and Vagrant

Learning Objective 5: Storage and System Automation Best Practice with OpenSource for DevOps

Looking forward to the workshop. Can you add more details and/or slides for the workshop. Also is there something you may require from us for this workshop.

Amit Singh Sethi (~dusual)

Hi Amit:

Thank you so much. Firstly, this would be a demo driven talk, where I will try to give a brief about Vagrant, what it is and how we can use it. And then will show how we can deploy our test/dev environment using Vagrant, for the demo purpose, I will create few VM for web services, one VM for Load Balancer and one VM as the management VM(on which I will install Ansible and manage & automate the other VMs later for the rest of the demo.

After that shall brief about Ansible and use some playbook, which I will fire from the Management VM which will configure all the VMs(which was previously created using Vagrant) with web services(niginx) and few other utilities(for load balancers) and then once everything is done.

Having said that, I will be in the demo mode mostly, and shall toggle to the ppt as and when required.

Please let me know your inputs/opinion.

Thanks for all your help. Regards, Suman

I just need a projector :)

If this is a talk then this is in the wrong section. If you plan to just give a demo in your workshop then this defeats the purpose of a workshop.

Please clarify what you will be doing talk/workshop?

Can we have some links to your slides or a general structure, some thing that can be used to be put on the projector so audience can follow along.

Please upload the slides/structure so they can be reviewed before 12th feb.

Have you given any talks(including this one) before? Any experience of public speaking? It's not a requirement for doing the talk but would definitely help us gauge the experience level. We suggest going through the presentation least once in front of a small audience to get some experience if you have not already.
