Automated Cloud Provisioning with Salt Cloud


Salt Cloud is a public cloud provisioning tool designed to automate
deployment of public cloud systems. Currently supporting a growing
number of popular cloud providers, Salt Cloud is a lightweight yet
robust solution to managing cloud-based systems.

Virtual machines created with Salt Cloud install Salt and assign it to
a specified Salt Master. This means that provisioned virtual machines
can be fully managed without ever being logged into! From deploying
single virtual machines, to mapping and provisioning entire clouds,
Salt Cloud is as scaleable as you need it to be.

While Salt Cloud has been designed to work with Salt, it is also a
generic cloud management platform and can be used to manage non
Salt-centric clouds.

This presentation will outline requirements for Salt and Salt Cloud,
as well as demonstrate automated provisioning of virtual machines
across multiple clouds and multiple distributions.
