Don't fix it. Throw it away! Introduction to disposable infrastructure
Disposable infrastructure is a new paradigm for managing a full stack of infrastructure. Chris Dorros explores the benefits of this model, giving you hands-on experience with the most popular tools in this space. You'll see how easy it is to confidently make and roll back changes in production that you'll never want to SSH into a box to "make a quick fix" ever again.

Infrastructure as code? Programmable, disposable, immutable? Cattle? You’ve heard all the buzzwords describing disposable infrastructure, the new paradigm for managing a full stack of infrastructure. Historically, making changes to production systems was one of the scariest tasks for fear of “breaking something.” This led to a strong separation of developers and sysadmins, strict change control procedures, and fear of taking risks. With the advent of disposable infrastructure, we’re seeing a blend of roles into DevOps, where developers can manage the full stack all the way down to the OS. This paradigm allows for changes to be made with confidence, since the entire infrastructure is being version controlled and can be rolled back quickly. Chris Dorros explores the theory behind this new systems-management technique before giving you hands-on experience with the hottest open source tools. You’ll see how easy it is to confidently make and roll back changes in production that you’ll never want to SSH into a box to “make a quick fix” ever again. Topics include:
