Followup on “on-demand provisioning is stupid”


I learned about the technique Mise en place via my girlfriend who thought she needs to professionalize her weekly baking endeavours.

Read http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mise_en_place and mentally apply this to system provisioning in a large (automated) IT.

This is good followup to my old article https://deranfangvomende.wordpress.com/2011/03/31/are-you-really-done-virtualizing-or-did-you-stop-at-the-start/ where I tried to explain why it is a big waste of time to install each server when required, cut each new SAN lun for the server, assign zoning, provision each VLAN when it’s needed instead of having it ready on time.
