Subject Area
About a year ago I accepted a new job in an enterprise Linux environment, running ~450 Linux servers. These servers were running on an internal network and had never been updated. Most work was done ad-hoc and in response to issues or failure. I transformed the team to a pro-active way of working where automation was key. By solving the most frequent problems first, we found the time to automate more and more. Every server was updated and configuration management was introduced. One interesting year later I've automated myself out of my job. The team can easily handle the (now much lighter) workload without me. Users are happy, so mission completed! Configuration management is done using CFEngine 3 and we use other DevOps style tools like Git, Vagrant, Trello, Logstash etc.

check it is in the 2nd hour and see if and how these and hundreds of trucks and it's also the people in the world I think this part that so I'm at
the end of it gradually going to let people to talk for use of the the the what and what the show use of the of the uh that explains the data and the
people of the this is the original 30 when at of just below the line to the and always you really don't start for all
of the states that start the already existing the and then you will have to and how do you know that the recent work of the new we're already working it basically more of the that happens use and water so don't use the word in
the eye and they're not doing anything in the way of that is a world of and so that was the response of the original and the solutions it that is the number of so until last year I worked at the Wash modified providential emerging tool the company is the the only new Chinese and 1 of the main problem I have chosen to use of the forms the the that is that by exactly the only difference part word before so I don't the so we want to find the price that so in this case is because they so we government organizations and there are a thousand people and 1 of the many factors organization was doing so after the fact so that is why we have 1 of the things guys so that was produced in both very classical find organization so the more profound versions problems right within their own units under the and even in the operations in a of many
different a review of all of so you give it to you in order see where things are usually so that for every single of the things the title of the users in the form of the body is a team that this is the so you can go wrong with that we use idea of what the problem of the data the president of the and
the right side of the words the this is the name of the job and we were very we are a very hot the software problems actually while those were the only ones that try to follow more or less so we all react moreover all of you were at the University of flying but it didn't have the that the everywhere because we had so many of you think of the we know that the 1st of all you need to do so by the end of the there was just 1 of the major problem here is that and that most of them are users different
the beginning by the same no to the wire the so you can give you some examples of which this is 1 of the things that have with probably most of you know I so just thinking just in the Policies leverage the useful part of the world in the bottom of the most and in this region of the uh in the world of business because everything was coming from the origin of some of the actors in this world in so we ought to do so the really on this is the only 1 of those of the of the results we got a lot of balls and and this is the kind of thing going on over the world so that's that's what we mean mean by the mechanism also the 1st so were about 3 months the and that the parties that have been that this so we don't need to I just change will work and then we have a lot of talking with the information we we
want people to find the data to fire prevention so for about a year and it was a number of we In the 1st and the the the so I was originally developed by over the years of I have used a lot in 1 of the a of so this is the 1st of the year of the problem that the of of running the remainder of the community in a lot of people just want to do that the stock is in the form of the above so the the the most the time and that belong to 1 of the most of the of the of the original
and the good news for the we don't know that that there are a number of initiatives in the direction to get of so you be what was mentioned in the text so we have a lot of the ice from the knowledge of the of in the it allows you to refer back to some of the new state it was integrated if is no the result and also the history of the event all and all of this version of the rest of the time of the month and and operation the this can be in the best assurance that the work of of the of the of the of the of the just fine what do you like this and this is the 1st time in over a and those of the training as if you have all the pictures that we have used the event the of the what and this summer you each we use
a very so you 1 of the most of the people in the UK just going to be 1 of the things that we want you want to go out and what was the status the working all the University of In the presence of the work that has a unique issues you would arrive on time and it is due to the nature of the problem and both of them in the response of the people the next step of to the of the using the particles were actually being so the room in the center of the universe and in 1 but most of the work in the world and I'll much show of you that
of the center of the if the value of the the value of the of same thing so there's a different in In fact I think about it was trying to involve the whole process of and the only way to think about the domain of the huge flow the the only service you of that we would like to know which 1 of the things that the we don't have the right to be in the lab and we want to do this and this is 1 of the really really love the 1st all of where they were and we use this is usually the trust and they're all of that and that's the emergence of a smaller than that of the things in the process of the following me around the state the of the model is the
man in the back of the law so you see all edges of their from the only publicly so everything that is not the features that the goal of the talk of in this and the base the issue of the so this is really the only you you emerge and the right 1 that because the we just want to go to the park with variable we also share the views of the and are using the and you want to know what you're doing and that was very old and so this is the probability of the issues
involving due to this whole process is part of the country you from a different perspective the the figure and so 1st thing we the use they're doing their like you do with
that of the the some the things in the use of that the so what we have you're discussing what to do we have a lower bound on the you know that there was a lot of what I say whatever about the user the of the of the before I can do more work of literature and the heart of the capital of its that so this is what is the particularly with
the use of the varied from all of the words in the grant all this can the
the true quality of service in the introduction to the theory that the arousal of some of problems with the book so that we need a lot of different useful in some of the users the at we
chose in the middle of the the we fixing problems for lack of a common thing happens to all of our services to the question is how do we have here is just the start of it if you have started fire fighting the producing always find time to action of working so I was looking back I'm from 5 different places in this and and the 1st step the you
can find out what it with the view of the of the of the the of the of the his in review
of the quality of going you just give him a part of why is it that it is useful property of the example a while of this is the way it goes on we want to find out what to do with that of
an individual is part of the reason for the problem 1 of the prefix of strong just do the whole issue of new the from the birth of the the loss is not included in some of the books that have all in all the of the of the love of the thing here we you need a lot of time to install and invest in time and you would want in
which that's really important because of what is of this if you want to start with the original version of the of the of the of the point here so you can use so there are some of the time and or I think that the maximum size of the rest of the state of the meeting was 1 of the world's 1 that is in the book and want to make sure that the most prominent political the only 1 the opportunities to start building of the inside of the there
have been a lot of things just came out of this so that the the original score of all of and the theory of those where you have this place every next to the river and you look at it and of the most and we will just environment was 1 of those the everything so if you have a read and she wants to be payoff so in this is how you find a lot of the the final
phase if you have a problem with families in the original and everything works right so there is a downside to the whole approach that the use force once this is done by a factor of 2 in the units used it for each 1 of these ideas was used in the context of but I can talk about it is
that you need something about the future of this and the variance of the total sum of more than 2
and a lot of interest on the part of good friend and so on and so you can use the the the the the of the the of the last item on the on the use of the of the of the of the of the of the week at the
time of the users and the state of the art in the world the meaning of the devices that we will find the influence of the of the of the bottom investors by the started based on you got all the answers of the you a position the reason is going to be a model and and the so I do don't have a lot of work in the light of a report on some of the examples of what it is
that we also used in this so that I haven't used in the region of that is the sovereign and how and bring in this part of the global work on the right
of the of of this research we do so don't you want to know how the
wrong way and a did not cover all of the the of some of the new of of of the or the amount of human motion along the lines of the of the of the of in the in the following so in love with and was that the world and
in the few of of the of the of the resolution and with the but during the
silent parts of the of the of the in fact I think it would be at the time of the of the research in the area so of the the the the way in which of the of the of the of the problem in a more of a deterrent to 1 of the you know you allow me to just over a year and a half and we have the the the structure of the of are the best of the 2 thank you thank you to the is and and and the reason is because of the danger of power and responsibilities of being in the same 1 thing to be careful about the this use different types of the 1st thing you do this the reaction and the number of people and and the the original and the reason is that if you're in a positive way so that you have to do with the users of on the part of this of is the words are used in the world and the the this was the start of the the of the of the of the of the of the of the and we have a lot in the event of the we have so far in the just this 1 here and there and the region 1 of the what still the other thing to use of the being in the universe thank you know
