Have lots of legacy or “black box” servers that no one understands? Want to duplicate the environment without copying the mess, (or create new mess)? Ever wished you can just blow that system up, over and over again?

In this talk, Mike Lazzaro, Lead Systems Engineer at OTG (, will walk through how his team used Ansible to lift their internal DNS system out of a legacy environment and into a set of “phoenix servers” that can be destroyed and completely rebuilt in about 15 minutes.

Whether you're new to Ansible, or are curious of how to adopt "phoenix server" practices to your workplace, this is the talk for you.
