There is no such thing as a standard environment and configuration management systems must provide solutions to match your needs. In this course, Using Salt’s Alternative Architectures, you’ll learn to deploy configuration in a variety of topologies or configuration architectures. First, you’ll explore the operation of agentless Salt using salt-ssh to cater for systems not having the Salt Minion installed. Next, you’ll discover management of systems on remote sites using Syndic and a Master of Masters topology . Finally, you’ll learn how to apply configuration to isolated systems using salt-call without the need of a Master. When you’re finished with this course, you’ll have the skills and knowledge of Salt configuration management needed to work in a range of environments.
