Chapter 16 delves into application performance monitoring and Real User Monitoring (RUM) and synthetic application monitoring. Cloud Computing In the past few years, especially over the past 5 years, there has been an explosive increase in the outsourcing of hardware and platform services, through the adoption of cloud computing. The reasons for the headlong rush of companies to cloud based computing aren’t hard to figure out. When you move to the cloud, you don’t need to spend as much to get a new infrastructure in place and hire and train the teams to support it.

For virtual servers, VMware offers CloudForms, which helps with server deployment, configuration management (with the help of Puppet and Chef) and server lifecycle management. There are several excellent open source server deployment tools such as the follow‐ ing: • Cobbler • Razor • Crowbar • Foreman In Chapter 6, I show how tools such as Razor and Cobbler help with the automatic deployment of servers. Server (hardware) Virtualization In the old days, all applications ran directly on an operating system, with each server running a single OS.

Finally you can’t integrate these tools with your CM tools. A tool such as Mcollective overcomes all these draw‐ backs of the plain vanilla parallel execution tools and allows you execute commands parallelly on thousands of servers belonging to different platforms. Chapter 6 shows how MCollective works. Version Control Systems Version control is the recording of changes to files so you can recall specific versions of the files at a later time. Although version control systems are mostly used by devel‐ opers (and increasingly by system administrators), source code isn’t the only thing you can version – the strategy of keeping multiple versions of the same document in case you’ll need them later on is applicable to any type of document.
