Join on in - looking forward to this event next week!
 
PaddyPower found themselves struggling with known DevOps pain points from slow and laborious provisioning of infrastructure, lack of consistency between and within environments, through inconsistent tooling with no standardization - that often times affected the rollout of releases and updates. Enter Cloudify and Chef.  In this podcast, Ben Kepes, of Diversity.Net will talk to John Turner, Software Development Manager at PaddyPower, along with Andy Hawkins, Technical Director at Opscode, and Nati Shalom, CTO at GigaSpaces, about PaddyPower's journey towards application centric DevOps, and how they achieved consistency and continuous delivery by deploying their apps to Cloudstack, using Cloudify and integrating with Chef.
