This presentation provides an overview of Heat, a peek inside the AWS CloudFormation template language, and a live demonstration of Heat technologies. Heat provides an Apache 2 licensed AWS CloudFormation orchestration software that orchestrates cloud infrastructure resources such as storage, networking, instances, and applications into a repeatable running environment for OpenStack IAAS platforms. Heat also provides several advanced features such as authentication, high availability, auto-scaling, and nested stacks.
The audience will learn how Heat applies to OpenStack cloud environments using devops methodology. CloudOpen attendees can learn about the emerging AWS CloudFormation standard and its impact on Linux and open source cloud communities. A speaker experienced with live demonstrations makes the medium technical difficulty approachable through real-life examples.
