        Remote configuration with Quattor 30m
        Quattor configures a host by running quattor configuration modules locally on that host. We have constructed a system for running remote configuration modules; code that does not have to run on the local host. This can be used to configure "black box" devices such as VMware hosts, NetApp filers, etc. This talk runs through how the new system works.
