Configuration Management [clear filter]
Wednesday, July 10
 

9:00am EDT

Please pass the Salt... Agents and MDM.
Most assume that configuration management is only as good as the agent running on the device. Salt is a multifaceted tool that runs locally as an agent but is also capable of managing devices that don't run an agent. In this session, we'll go over practical uses of the agent and as well as an intro to the potential of Stateful MDM through Salts proxy minion system.

From Flooded Server Room to 100% Cloud: Making your K-12 (or Business) Modern, Distributed, Resilient, Secure, and Scalable
Could your organization communicate and operate in the event of a total site shutdown? Are you leveraging all the benefits of modern cloud computing, or following the status quo? Can you operate from the coffee shop down the street as easily as the IT office?

We'll examine the total communications failure and rapid expansion imperative that motivated The Winston Preparatory School to decentralize every technology component and go 100% cloud. Part case study, part retrospective, we'll discuss not just the technology choices, but the motivation, debates, culture shifts, false starts, and pivots that led to where we are today.

The XML-Files: I Want To Believe
A year after the introduction of the iPhone, Apple began hinting at their vision of the future of device management: mobile profiles. Eleven years later, Mac management with profiles is still a world of unfulfilled promises, mysteries, misdirections, and strange disappearances. But the promise of simplicity and consistency that MDM _could_ bring is so compelling, I want to believe. And the MacAdmin community of geniuses, skeptics, crackpots, and believers are the people making that future possible today through hard work, guess work, reverse work, tears, and lots and lots of coffee.
