Self-Service Toolchain/Monitoring through versioned Infrastructure and Configuration as Code
In this talk, we show the audience how we combined our experience as an enterprise SaaS provider with our experience as an OpenShift IaaS provider, to create an easy to use, easy to update and easy to rollback `Infrastructure and Configuration as Code` Toolchain/Monitoring solution.
This solution faces updating, misconfiguration and diversification issues, by using Docker Images in combination with OpenShift.
We further discuss our self-service system, which enables us to decrease maintenance and to avoid manual steps by using automated deployment of large amounts of instances.
We will then discuss the idea of saving all configuration inside version control, while totally ignoring the users' UI changes.
