Like all powerful solutions to complex problems, a great deal of the useful know-how has to be discovered by actual practice and hard-won experience. I will share with you my current best practices with some insight into why.

This is not a live demo of OpenStack being deployed with SaltStack. That being said you will get a window into an OpenStack cloud deployed via Salt. The SaltStack methods you will be show are used in the current HP Cloud Public PaaS offerings: DBaaS and LBaaS .

(I am planning to record a small screenscast of a multi node deployment using publicly available salt-formula’s)
