What's in the box?

Tom McLaughlin from Hubspot is going to be talking about how they implemented Packer to make the creation of OS images faster and easier. Packer is a tool for creating identical machine images for multiple platforms from a single source configuration.

At Hubspot, It replaces a previously error prone process that required the developer to frequently spend large periods of time waiting to proceed to the next step over the course of at least an hour and a half. The new process takes about a third of the time and can be performed in nearly a single command. The HubSpot TechOps team produces images for AWS EC2, both HVM and paravirt, and Vagrant. An important goal in building images is ensuring that all three vary as little as possible so instances are predictable no matter what image someone is developing or testing on. While Packer attempts to create images as similar as possible it cannot in all situations as the build process can differ significantly from image type to image type. Instead they use Packer to build a master image that is reprocessed for each platform's needs. This ensures a large degree of parity between images and has proven to make the image development and testing process much faster.

As usual, join as at 6PM for drinks and social time before the talk begins around 7PM.
