Over the years I've moved from Production to Test to Development and back to Production.

This presentation is a summary of my learnings along the way:

  • After running larger production environments I wondered how it would be different in the cloud
  • What would be extra if you already have configmt, continouous delivery etc..
  • I learned that selfservicing and API's can make a huge difference
  • and I plea for more IT companies to apply these principles in their internal IT.
  • not only for machine provisioning , but also for logging, monitoring, etc ..

Here's my presentation from cloudcamp Ghent 2011 that was brilliantly organized by Frederik Van Hecke
