Managing (or not) the Data in Immutable Infrastructure

The idea of immutable infrastructure is awesome. However a major problem immediately erupts when we get to the part where we actually have to connect application infrastructure with data infrastructure. In this talk I’ll aim to start conversations about what specifics we can aim for now, and in the future, to remove this gap. I’ll also talk about and show what and how I’ve worked up solutions in production with immutable infrastructure and data connectivity.

In this talk I talk about the needs and problems of two specific data systems we’ve deployed at Home Depot. One is our use of Elasticsearch and the other is SQL Server.
