DIY Private Cloud w/ VirtualBox and Chef

As a progressive devops practitioner you really want to take advantage of modern practices like continuous delivery and automated/on-demand scale-out; however, it could take months or years before that behemoth of an enterprise you call your 9-5 has its lawyers figure out if the public cloud gets the green-light.

In the meantime, this session will help you get your head around the potential benefits of building your own private cloud solution. We will explore a simple scenario using VirtualBox and Chef to compose and provision your environments. You will learn how to store your infrastructural metadata under version control using Git and provision environments via your continuous integration server.

Even if you decide that the public cloud is what you need, learning to do-it-yourself can give you much-needed insight into how elastic provisioning works.
