SaltStack Opportunity

SaltStack was built as an orchestration and automation platform to manage all layers of the data center infrastructure to create optimal value and computing utility to the business. Depending on business need, cloud can either be ubiquitous and general purpose in nature, or designed for specific use cases and applications. Regardless, contemporary data center infrastructure is malleable yet complex, and with the right tools can provide substantial benefit and competitive advantage to the enterprise.

A wide spectrum of tools for traditional systems management, cloud management and DevOps automation address singular aspects of infrastructure and application control. SaltStack is unique in offering an orchestration platform with native configuration management for automation of critical CloudOps, ITOps and DevOps tasks.

Core SaltStack functions for systems management, cloud orchestration, configuration management, and event-based infrastructure automation help mold a cloud or data center infrastructure into the most useful resources. For example, SaltStack is used to deploy, manage and automate infrastructure and applications for big data, Internet of things, dynamic storage, software-defined networking, server security, hardening and compliance, high performance computing and much more.
