Whether orchestration is a buzzword you’ve heard and plan on looking into, or you’ve already taken a stab at it and found yourself looking for more - this talk is for you! Jacquie will be walking us through the A,B,Cs of scheduling workloads with an example application and Nomad as an orchestrator. We’ll discover how different types of workloads affect orchestration, such as stateful versus stateless applications and scheduling with security constraints.
