Manage Virtual Machines like Configuration with Salt
2020-02-03, 16:00–16:50, B.2.011

Virtual Machines are live things, but what if I want to manage them just like configuration? Salt helps you doing it by defining the VMs using states. This talk will be showing off how to leverage this feature. The talk will quickly walk through the basics of Salt states before exploring the virt state. Then we will see how Salt uses libvirt to get this done.

Since this is also used by Uyuni, the session will provide an insight of a real-life use case.

Hacking on open source software for 13 years, I contributed to a wide range of projects like openSUSE, LibreOffice, libvirt, Uyuni or Salt.
