Automation–Orchestrating the Cloud

Hello Readers and Viewers!

I hope you are ready for this, the next installment of my Building Clouds Blog Video Demonstration Series!Building Clouds Blog

As this is a series of “behind the scenes” demonstrations for the automation portions of “SCDemo Cloud” offering, this post and video is a long time in the making. And while we have had the infrastructure setup and working in production for quite a while now, it was only recently I had the opportunity to map out and record demonstrations of each of the main parts of the automation behind “SCDemo Cloud”.
