How Automation Benefits IT Operations: Good Automation Things Come in Threes

IT professionals talk about automation… sometimes ad nauseum. We generally understand its value, even if we’re tribally divided by the specifics of its application. For civilians, automation is a catch-all for using technology to wield skills and abilities outside their experience (like placing an order through a complex infrastructure) and access the world of vendors and goods they wouldn’t have time to connect with on their own.

Getting Started with Resolve Automation and MS Teams integration

In this short video, Rob Kelsall and Brent Hunter explain how organizations can quickly take advantage of integration between Resolve Actions (automation) and MS Teams to introduce chat ops in their organization to better support end users.

How CFEngine stays ahead of the pack

CFEngine was the first Configuration Management solution on the market, and while we have made many and significant changes and improvements to CFEngine in that time, we stay true to the principles that make it such a great product and technology. There are many things that have changed in the market, not at least the competitive situation, we believe that fundamentally many of the challenges stay the same. It then follows that good architecture should not be sacrificed for short term hype.

Kelverion: Optimizing Runbook Performance

By default, each Orchestrator Runbook Server is configured to simultaneously run a maximum of 50 runbooks. This is to control the CPU and Memory load placed on the Orchestrator Runbook Server by executing Runbooks. You can change this number by using the Runbook Server Runbook Throttling tool. In most cases, you can increase the default setting. If Orchestrator has a number of Runbooks with high CPU or Memory resource requirements, you might run fewer Runbooks simultaneously.
