Tomasz is a system admin to the core. Growing number of server and systems guided his journey from simple scripts to full-blown automation suites. Having experience with different businesses, Tomasz recently took the challenge of introducing DevOps in a bank. He doesn't believe in workarounds, preferring to fix the problems at root. That's why Tomasz is a Fedora Linux distribution developer for better part of a decade.
JBoss EAP is a heavy-duty Java application server. It's a perfect match for huge banking applications, but also perfect impedance mismatch with DevOps processes. This is the story how we persuaded the Behemoth to work with Chef automation. The goal was to manage multitude of our JBoss clusters and be able to rebuild the infrastructure on-demand.
