Image management or configuration management? Yes.

A typical enterprise infrastructure team is tasked with managing several data centers and several public clouds with thousands of virtual machines and containers running heterogeneous software, services and applications. This scenario requires data center automation to help offset the inevitability of infrastructure sprawl and complexity, and to help drive speed, scale and flexibility into the technical core of business. The combination of SaltStack and Docker delivers the potential of extreme simplicity, speed, scale and flexibility for enterprise infrastructures through automation. This talk will show how to use SaltStack to manage and move Docker images between environments as part of a command and control platform. We will also show how to use the SaltStack module for Docker to get the software pieces in place then step aside as Docker works its magic managing containers on local machines.
