New Horizons in IT Automation: 12 Places Where Manual Work is Holding You Back From Efficiently Delivering and Scaling What Your Business Demands From IT - Lindsey Smith, Puppet Labs
New Horizons in IT Automation: 12 places where manual work is holding you back from efficiently delivering and scaling what your business demands from IT. This talk is about new opportunities for automation to make IT infrastructure, services and applications more maintainable, consistent and scalable. Not only does this make the IT org more agile and responsive to business needs, it also enables IT self-service, lets people scale farther, reduces reliance on reactive firefighting and reduces the risk of concentrating expertise in small numbers of key people. We will touch on the areas of infrastructure provisioning, virtual/cloud environments, network and storage devices, OS management, compliance and application deployment.

Migration Strategies from vSphere to Linux and OpenStack via a shared virtualized network - Dan Conde, Midokura
In this talk, Dan Conde will explore ways in which users who are considering migrating from a vSphere virtualization environment to a Linux and OpenStack-based environment can create a gradual migration strategy that enables co-existence of workloads in both environments with a gradual switchover, as opposed to an abrupt rip-and-replace conversion. Dan will examine ways in which a virtualized network environment can be used to develop both isolated and shared network segments to both environments to enable a smooth migration.
