Automation Aggregation: StackiFest!

Taking a break from being non-salesy to tell you about something that I think is really cool, and happens to be sponsored by my employer. Since I don’t write blogs dedicated to all the other really cool events going on, thought I’d warn you about the employer part. Though with the warning, I’ll add “But it’s a chance to seriously geek out”.

This week, Thursday to be precise, is the week that Stacki users and community members get together for StackiFest, a chance to spend a day discussing server provisioning, data center automation, Stacki, and their use in the enterprise. The Agenda is full of great sessions, and the ability to chat with others that are automating the datacenter. If you’re in the San Jose area, it’s not too late to plan on going, talking to the core developers, and hearing presentations about how Stacki is actually being used in the datacenter.

Attending StackiFest will help you quickly understand why a growing number of organizations are choosing Stacki for their server provisioning tool, and how it is integrated with application provisioning tools to provide bare metal to running complex application automation. Check out the Agenda at the above StackiFest link, and you’ll understand what I mean.

Should be a fun time, the core team are all going to be in attendance, as will many community members, and most of the project sponsor – StackIQ’s staff (this author is, I believe, the only StackIQ employee who will miss the fun). If you’re in the area and have the time, quick register and see what all the excitement is about.

If you’re not available for the festivities, watch the Stacki project video page over the course of next week, and we’ll be posting the sessions so you can still get a look.
