In this talk, two of the core developers of Heat will describe the powerful modelling capabilities of the HOT DSL and show you how combine them to deploy and maintain complex applications.

You will learn about:

  • Decomposing your application into a tree of components using nested stacks.

  • Using Provider templates to define your own custom resource types.

  • Decoupling Software Configuration from infrastructure.

  • Managing software orchestration with Software Deployment resources.

  • Abstracting differences between OpenStack clouds with Environments.

  • Scaling out entire components (not just servers) with Scaling Groups.

The talk will conclude with a walkthrough of a real application deployment using these concepts.
