How We Modified an Agent-based Automation System to Become an Agentless One

Lessons and Architecture

Salt initially was designed to be an agent-base automation system. Salt SSH was added later on to allow an alternative that does not require installing a agent, and instead communicate over SSH. We will discuss how we modified the initial agent-based solution and the architectural decisions behind this work. We will talk through some of the challenges, lessons learned and what worked well for the project.
