Many cloud deployments start with wonderful hopes and dreams, but quickly devolve to decentralized chaos, ever-increasing bills, or abandonment. This workshop will cover the most important aspects of cloud management so that your organization can realize the full benefits of the cloud instead of becoming a cautionary tale.
We will cover how to establish a robust (but fixed) set of tools and resources; how to monitor access, performance, security, and cost; how to handle privileged-user access so that your developers and sysadmins have access to only the things they need; why you should (usually) bootstrap your servers instead of baking them; and how to take full advantage of automation and orchestration.
