The New Stack Context: SaltStack Does Orchestration and Linus Torvalds’ Apology

Listen to all TNS podcasts on Simplecast.

This week on the TNS Context podcast, we talk with Alex Peay, SaltStack vice president of product, and Gary Richmond, a SaltStack product manager, about automated security compliance scanning and event-based orchestration. Also joining us today is TNS founder and editor-in-chief Alex Williams and TNS managing editor Joab Jackson.

Jackson was in Salt Lake City this month covering SaltConf, where Peay and Richmond spoke about event-driven automation and orchestration using SaltStack Enterprise. The company’s configuration management and remote execution engine is a stepping stone for automated IT operations, offering a way to automate the checking and remediation of desired configurations. We discuss the promise of automated security remediation with Peay, and venture into event-driven orchestration with Richmond,

Then later in the show, we discussed some of the top stories on the site this week, including a story by TNS correspondent Jennifer Riggins on Linus Torvalds’ most recent apology and decision to take some time off of Linux kernel development to work on his people skills.
