OSMC 2017 Recap

This was our 8th year at OSMC 2017. Before you dive into the archive full of videos, slides and pictures, I’d like to do a short recap on the many things to explore and learn.

The first day usually starts with workshops. This time Lennart provided a deep dive into Icinga 2 in distributed environments, based on a rewritten chapter for the Icinga book v2.0. Rumors do tell that everyone was super excited and is already refining their production setups.

The talks started on Wednesday with news on the schedule – three tracks to decide from. Many decisions on very good talks, if you have missed some, go straight for the archive. Below is just a summary, there are many more talks to watch :)

Icinga 2 v2.8 including the CA-Proxy, On-Demand-Signing and Elasticsearch feature was released right before OSMC. Some of you already upgraded their production environment :)

Icinga Web 2 v2.5 was shown during our Icinga presentation at OSMC and released right after. Collapsible side menu, revamped design, domain aware AD authentication and many cool things more. Ensure to follow the upgrading documentation.

We’ve also announced new modules in their first release 0.9: Modules for Graphite and Elasticsearch integrated into Icinga Web 2.

Icinga Exchange v2.0 is now LIVE. Login with your Github account, create a new project, paste your project’s Github URL, choose an awesome logo, add some tags and let it sync. “icingaexchange.yml” is no more. Please join on in, we need your support on making this platform even better :)
