Explore the implementation and configuration of various Salt Stack products in this 13-video course, which discusses the architecture and architectural components and identifies Salt's characteristics and role in DevOps. Learners will see illustrations of the basic configuration of salt components, such as Salt master and Salt minion; learn to install, configure, and implement various products of Salt Stack; and learn to implement capabilities of agentless Salt grains, Salt engine, and execution modules. SaltStack Enterprise provides an intelligent automation platform which can manage secure and also optimize any infrastructure, whether it is on-premises, in the cloud, or at the edge. Essential components of SaltStack Enterprise include its engine, its operations framework, and SaltStack SecOps, which provides the capability of customizing the policy or creating custom checks. Other key topics include Salt best practices, Salt Dependencies, and Salt Bootstrap. Learn to recognize implementation scenarios in which SaltStack Enterprise plays an important role. In a concluding exercise, learners will be asked to list core features of Salt, write Salt runner, and write execution module.
