Title: Once upon a time … the deployment
Date and Place: 19/03/ 2019 11:00 in TD-C
Host: Jean-Marie Gorce and Florent de Dinechin
In large distributed systems the resource managements is one key of the efficient. And the deployment of the elements on resources are hidden everywhere, across the network, across the virtualization, across many infrastructures, etc. Through 6 stories we will discover many points of view of the deployment. First adventure, we will see how to deploy a middleware with self-stabilization skill. In the second story, be afraid, we will see how to deploy a secure Cloud Infrastructure. In the following story, we will introduce a deployment tool for reproducibility. The licenses deployment is another weird story with a lot of mysteries. An unbelievable story to deploy a data-driven microservices infrastructure. And finally, we will try to clear up the Fog deployment.
