Mitchell Hasimoto is best known as the creator of Vagrant and founder of HashiCorp. He is also an O'Reilly author and professional speaker. He is one of the top GitHub users by followers, activity, and contributions. "Automation obsessed," Mitchell strives to build elegant, powerful DevOps tools at HashiCorp that automate anything and everything. Mitchell is probably the only person in the world with deep knowledge of most virtualization hypervisors.

Building Robust Systems with Service Discovery and Configuration

There is no scenario in the future where we have less servers. Whether you consider a server a physical machine, a virtual machine, or even a container, the number of each is growing at an extremely fast rate. It is becoming increasingly important in this view of the world to build robust systems that can ideally run anywhere, recover from crashes, distribute load, etc.

In this talk, I discuss these problems and how having a powerful system for service discovery and configuration can actually get you a fairly robust system without additional modifications. With this knowledge equipped, it becomes much easier to imagine migrating legacy and new infrastructures over to this modern world of many commodity machines.

      I walked up 8 flights with a hardy colleague, and it was worth it. But I'd rather not repeat that adventure, though Vagrant is as awesome as Docker in many ways :)
