rPath Offers Best Practices for Windows Deployment Automation


Share on LinkedIn

rPath, the service factory for on-demand IT, is sponsoring an upcoming webinar in which system management and Windows experts will examine next-generation automation techniques for releasing and updating Windows applications across physical, virtual and cloud-based data center environments.

The vast majority of IT organizations lack tools for automating deployment and update of Windows applications. Companies are spending nearly half of their IT operating budget on deployment-related tasks and issues—and for Windows shops today, speed and control are mutually exclusive attributes. In the absence of reliable automation, even the most well-run IT organizations have had to push ingenuity and brute force to the limit. This stands in the way of IT being responsive to the business, and negatively impacts service levels and business agility.

What: “Pushbutton Deployment: Automation for Speed and Control in the Windows Data Center” webinar

Who: Shawn Edmondson, director of product management, rPath
Joe Baltimore, Windows evangelist and Microsoft consultant

When: Tuesday, November 16, 2010; 2:00 p.m. Eastern time (11:00 a.m. Pacific time)

How: Register for this free event at http://bit.ly/ahywP6.

Topics will include:

• Using automation to close the gap between dev and ops
• Best practices for achieving pushbutton software deployment
• Model-driven and script-based approaches to automation
• Laying the foundation for self-service IT and cloud deployments
