Large-scale deployments with Pogo at Yahoo!
Mike Schilli will be giving a talk at YAPC::NA 2012 described as:
Deploying releases to tens of thousands of hosts reliably while only disrupting a limited number of busy production servers at a time in different colocations is impossible to manage manually.
Pogo is a distributed deployment engine written in Perl that solves this problem. It’s an open source project on Github, written by Yahoo’s deployment tools engineering group. It enables one-button deployments in large infrastructures at Yahoo! every day.
The talk offers a glimpse at how large-scale deployments are done at Yahoo! and how Pogo manages these tasks. We’ll also cover the Pogo distributed architecture, how to configure and use it for your needs and how to get involved with the project.
