SaltConf15 is March 3-5 in Salt Lake City, and you can use the "SALT33M" code to get $300 off the full main conference pricing. At the event, Ross Gardler from Microsoft Open Tech and Joseph Hall from SaltStack will demonstrate how to create a Salt master on Microsoft Azure within minutes. They'll then show how to use that master to manage infrastructure using the same configuration files used for other clouds and on-premises deployments.
SaltStack develops systems management software used by the world's largest businesses and Web-scale infrastructures for data center automation, hybrid cloud building and orchestration, server provisioning, and application configuration management. Ultimately, SaltStack is used to manage all the data center things including any cloud, infrastructure, virtualization, application stack, software, or code. Whether it's portability and interoperability or choice and control over how you deploy, Salt on Azure provides you with that flexibility.
