System Deployment

Linuxsaltawspython.jpgSix Feet Up contributed to the implementation of the client's Certification Program by developing a mechanism to quickly build and tear down servers. The team successfully integrated the system configuration management tool Salt with Amazon Web Services such as EC2 clusters, S3 storage, SQS and CloudFormation. Scripts were used to automate the management of VM environments and the creation and grading of exams. Leveraging the cross-platform tool Salt proved to be a key success factor as it helped the team navigate through each environment's bugs, quirks and edge cases when trying to get exams to operate identically in each distribution. The Six Feet Up QA team also played a key role in the project by relentlessly running each scenario against the three Linux distributions CentOS, OpenSUSE, and Ubuntu.
