Zile Rehman's Bio:

Over 10 years of experience in developing automated solution for Continous Integration (CI) and Continuous Delivery (CD). Currently at Nyansa as an Automation Infrastructure Architect.

· Nyansa allows organizations to proactively predict problems and optimize their network by analyzing wired and wireless data for every user in – real-time and over time – across the entire network-application stack.

Nyansa Use Case

In order to keep Nyansa's costs down, all of our dev, staging and POC environments are on AWS spot instances. Salt Stack allows us to detect the outage and spin up the replacement instances automatically. With over 100+ nodes on spot instances, and growing, we are confident that Salt will scale as we grow our business.


· Slide 1: Explain the big picture. Salt Master server with staging environments (i.e. minions) and event bus

· Slide 2: Skeleton python script outlining reactor tags and pseudo-code for reactions to events

· Demo: Bring down a node and detect the recovery

· Q & A

I will setup a separate github repo to spin up Salt Master and minions in vagrant. And provide instructions on setting up and learning about Salt Reactors.
