Speakers: Pepijn Bruienne

Level: Intermediate, Lecture

Excerpt: A review of the current state of Mac Admin Open Source Software, its implementation potential and a look at what’s ahead.

Description: With Apple’s exit from most Enterprise products it is upon the Mac Admin with scale needs beyond that of OS X Server to find something more capable.

Among the tools this community has to offer there may very well be one or two (or three) that could benefit your organization. We will take a look at Mac Admin OSS as it exists today and the capabilities offered to Mac Admins. When combined with modern microservices architecture courtesy of the Docker suite of tools your deployment timeline has the potential to go from months to ‘whoa!’
