REDtalks #16 – Andy & Tom on Metrics Driven Automation

In episode #16 we are joined by Andreas (Andy) Grabner, of Dynatrace, and Tom McGonagle, of F5 Networks.

Watch this episode to hear about Metrics Driven Automation, or Informed Automation, and how this takes the feat out of fully integrated deployment pipelines. Andy shares some great insights on how to avoid automating oneself into dangerous situations.

Following this, Tom shows us (yes, a live demo) how to deploy an F5 BIG-IP policy using the CI/CD tool, Jenkins.
