DevOps works best when your servers are no longer special snowflakes requiring individual attention. Instead, you need to learn to treat machines like cows - no names, no distinguishing characteristics, and so on. But how? You've still got to manage DNS, IP addresses, and all that other unique data, right?

You will learn:
- To make servers more generic and less individual
- Discover how cloud providers treat servers like cattle
- Find the connection between DevOps and automation
