Over the last few years SaltStack has invested a considerable amount of R&D to build a comprehensive IT orchestration and automation platform used by tens of thousands of IT operations and DevOps organizations around the world. SaltStack intelligent automation is used to control everything from a simple Philips Hue light bulb to extremely complex, massive infrastructure powering businesses such as IBM Cloud, eBay, or TD Bank.
With SaltStack Enterprise 6.0 we set out to make the power of the SaltStack event-driven automation and orchestration available to all security and IT professionals, from support techs to CTOs, and from security analysts to CISOs.
SaltStack Enterprise 6.0
When we began development on the SaltStack Enterprise 6.0 release we had two key goals in mind. First we wanted to make it easier for SaltStack users to manage and secure their entire IT infrastructure, from core data center server infrastructure to IoT and network devices at the edge. Second, we wanted to introduce focused solutions that specifically address the most common use cases and pain points in ITOps, NetOps, and SecOps.
SaltStack Enterprise 6.0 ships with a completely redesigned user interface guided by user-centered design principles. Every view in the SaltStack Enterprise console has been updated. The new console is designed around actual customer workflows and supports their most-common tasks. With a focus on usability and simplicity, the SaltStack Enterprise console elements are consistent across the product. This effort was heavily influenced by hundreds of customer interviews conducted during the last year and at SaltConf18.
