This talk brought to you in part by the Camp DevOps Conference campdevops.com (Chicago, Oct 22 - 23 2011)
glu is an open source deployment automation platform. Originally created at LinkedIn, it has been successfully used for orchestrating the deployment and management of the complex LinkedIn infrastructure for over a year. Since its open source release, glu has been gaining a lot of traction in the DevOps community. In this tech talk, you will learn from the author of glu, about the novel approach taken by glu to solve the deployment problem (state delta computation, ZooKeeper, REST, etc...). You will also be able to understand why glu is more than a tool but an actual platform on top of which you can customize and/or build your own deployment infrastructure. The talk will also feature a live demo of glu!
