Continuing our series of videos from the DevOps track at Gluecon this past year, our next video is “Why Docker + Ansible Make Chef and Puppet 100% Unnecessary by John Minnihan, ModernRepo” Again many thanks to CloudSoft for recording and making these videos available to us to post. Also the picture above is from the Ansible website originally.
This presentation sounds pretty controversial if you just look at the title. Actually John is not advocating throwing away your Puppet or Chef scripts. If you already have Chef or Puppet set up and you like the way it is working, there is no reason to change. However, John believes that Docker with Ansible can negate the need to use either of these tools going forward. John is primarily talking about a greenfield situation here I believe. Anyway, the video like the previous ones in this series are about 30 minutes. Enjoy!
