Configuration as a Service

A session at 2014 USENIX Configuration Management Summit (UCMS '14)

Thursday 19th June, 2014

11:45am to 12:30pm (EST)

Configuration Management is the de-facto standard to maintain infrastructures of all sizes. Even though some of the configuration management systems can bootstrap themselves, deploying and maintaining a configuration management system requires a permanent investment.

Computational resources have successfully been outsourced in the form of cloud computing and various other services like infrastructure (IaaS) or software (SaaS) are also available as a service. This talk discusses the possibility of moving from running a dedicated configuration management system to using configuration as a service, based on the cdist cloud configuration service, which allows users to configure their hosts without running a configuration management system on their own.
