2020-02-03, 16:00–16:25, B.1.017

This is the story of RLC, Roche Linux Client, deployed globally in 13 sites. Fully Integrated to our corporate environment. This talk is about how open source tools like Ansible, Foreman and Aptly made it all possible. Ultimately changing minds about how automation can bring value to our organisation.

RLC is based on Ubuntu desktop following LTS releases.

Mirroring and snapshot of Ubuntu package repositories allow reproducibility.

Foreman and ipxe give control and audit trail about deployments.

Ansible configures everything.
