Golden Images for Scaling Up with the Best of Them

In this era of everyone moving to cloud-based architectures for applications and services, one common tip given for making things easier in the cloud is to use so-called "golden images" of your operating platform so that you can quickly spin up what you need, where you need it. However, even with using OS vendor provided images, it's still slow and difficult to grow big efficiently. But what if I told you there's one small step that lets you take big leaps in improving the quality of service? That step is building your own custom images. At Datto, we run our own private cloud infrastructure, and as part of making that successful, we build our own custom images to ensure everyone has what they need to be successful and in compliance. This presentation will talk about our approach, the history and what led us here, and will top it off with a fun demo showing off a multi-distribution description for Linux operating system cloud disk images! If you're interested in scaling up and out with the best of them in a hybrid cloud and multi-cloud world, this will be great for you!
