ManageIQ: Automate, Optimize, and Control your Cloud and Virtualization Services

Speaker: Mike Hulsman


As we all use Virtualization, Clouds, Containers, Storage etc. They all come with their own management interface. ManageIQ (or RedHat CloudForms) is a hybrid management system that can manage those environments from a single interface.

As an admin it becomes easier to deploy an instance (VM,Container,complete environments), add it to the monitoring, backup, trigger Ansible and/or Puppet, add CMDB records all automatically.

Mike will present some capabilities of ManageIQ, use cases, reporting possibilities, and more.
