Presenting Bastille at SCaLE18x

By | 2020/01/28

I am excited to announce that I will be presenting “Bastille: Secure Container Automation” at SCaLE18x in Pasadena, CA. This presentation will demonstrate container automation on FreeBSD using Bastille.

Bastille is an open-source system for automating deployment and management of containerized applications on FreeBSD.

Bastille automates deployment and management of containers using a container technology *old enough to buy you a drink! We’ve taken automation concepts learned from leading config management contenders and combined them with the ORIGINAL container technology. FreeBSD introduced containers in April 1999, pre-dating every other container technology available. Imagine, a reliable container technology that has had two decades to work out bugs. Talk about production ready! This talk will outline design features and demonstrate secure container automation in the cloud and on the Raspberry Pi.

* Bastille uses FreeBSD Jails as the container platform.
