DevOps Sydney October Meetup
Building Better Containers with Habitat
Chef's new open source Habitat project (https://habitat.sh) provides application automation that enables modern application teams to build, deploy, and run any application in any environment - from traditional data-centers to containerized microservices. Habitat is a system for describing, building and packaging applications as well as a process supervisor that manages their runtime configuration. Habitat answers the question "what's in the container?" and complements container orchestrators like Kubernetes, Mesos and Docker Swarm and cloud and virtualization platforms while providing a path for bringing new and legacy applications into modern environments. This session will provide an overview of the benefits of Habitat and how you can start automating your applications today.
