Nomad Best Practices for Reliable Deploys

Learn how to setup and monitor a cloud native container platform that scales using HashiCorp's Consul and Nomad
Things like infrastructure as code, service discovery, and config management have helped us quickly build and rebuild infrastructure but we haven't spent nearly enough time to train ourselves to review, monitor, and respond to outages. Does your platform degrade in a graceful way? What does a high CPU load really mean? What can we learn from level 1 outages to be able to run our platforms more reliably?
How's Your SRE?
We all love infrastructure as code, we all "automate everything™" but how many of us can really say we could destroy and recreate our core infrastructure without human intervention. A container scheduler adds application life cycle management, scheduling, and placement based on available resources and connectivity features to your cloud system. It takes away the responsibility from you to take care for these tasks.
What You'll Learn
During this talk, Bram Vogelaar will investigate how to setup and monitor a cloud native container platform that scales using HashiCorp's Consul and Nomad service discovery and container scheduling tools. He will also define some best practices that will allow your platforms to be self-healing.
