SD-B317 Best Practices For Runbook Authoring and Managing Orchestrator @ MMS

At MMS 2013 I will present a session together with Pete Zerger

This session will cover how to author and organize runbooks created in Orchestrator so they can be easily reused, tested, and debugged. It will also cover some of the challenges customers face when managing the environment and best practices to follow.

During the session we will walk through the best practices and lessons learned around Orchestrator runbook design . We will highlight what works and pitfalls to avoid. Join this session to get ideas and tips how to get most out of Orchestrator and success with the automation in your datacenter.

See you there 🙂


  1. Hi, it will be a brand new session with new demos. But the topic is of course the same, runbook best practices. But there is a lot of things to say and we learn new best practices all the time so it will be new content.
