January General Meeting

Configuration Management 101

Speaker: Pat Valentine, Sr. Systems Administrator, Cloud Automation and Engineering, IHS

Pat Valentine

Pat will speak about "Configuration Management 101" covering the evolution of configuration management from early efforts to the present day. Pat spoke about Configuration Management at our June meeting. He got the sense that most of the audience didn't understand the fundamentals, what, why and methodology trade-offs. "101" will back fill this information.

Having just completed an initial implementation at IHSMarkit, he will speak from his direct experiences. Having reviewed the current tools in the marketplace, Pat will provide a comparison of the tools and will answer your questions after the presentation.

Pat has been providing UNIX and Linux system administration for over 15 years. Working as a junior admin at a local ISP, to the University of Calgary, Faculty of Medicine to IHS Inc. has provided experience with Solaris (6-11), TRU-64, HP-UX, RHEL (2-7), CentOS, OpenBSD, Ubuntu and AWS. His other hats include Data Centre Administrator, Change Management Leader, Network Admin, Storage Admin and all around handy guy.

Pat is passionate about Configuration Management, Usable Secure Servers, Black holes and Lego.
