Our Saltstack (Salt) training course will introduce you to this configuration management and orchestration tool.

It uses a central repository to provision new servers and other IT infrastructure, to make changes to existing ones, and to install software in IT environments, including physical and virtual servers, as well as the cloud.

Salt is a new approach to infrastructure management built on a dynamic communication bus. Salt can be used for data-driven orchestration, remote execution for any infrastructure, configuration management for any app stack, and much more.
