Saving the world with #devops!

Much much fun yesterday with my chums at OpsCode and Mozilla! Interesting story this, albeit rather long, it should give some insight as to why devops is important to HPC and why computing at scale really matters. We talk about granularity, scale, configuration management, the rise of the Linux OS and open source and how all these advances enable bigger and better science and discovery. I mention some of the reasons why I'm over at cyclecomputing also and what we are doing there with advanced technology to manage utility supercomputing at massive scale to solve real world scientific problems.
