We will be holding some sessions at LinuxCon in San Diego this summer and will be very happy to see you there!
We just got a 15% off coupon to give away, but you need to act fast - it is good for the first 10 attendees and then it expires. The code is LFSD12345 - use it when you register for LinuxCon 2012 here.
We wanted to share the abstract of Diego's session.

The past year has seen a plethora, one might even say an entire movement, of talks and blog posts under the heading "Monitoring Sucks". Plenty of valid criticisms have been made about the state of the art in monitoring. Back in 1998, I was similarly dissatisfied with the state of the art, and began to ask some basic questions that resulted in CFEngine's present day tools for system monitoring. This article is a reminder of CFEngine's smart, and extremely lightweight tools for de-centralized monitoring. These tools were designed to be adaptable, hands-free and to scale to tens of thousands of hosts, while handling machine-learning pattern matching, and responding automatically to thresholds and anomalies with minimal latency, with or without human intervention.

We are proud to announce the immediate availability of the CFEngine Design Center, a community-driven place to exchange CFEngine code, tools and information.
The CFEngine Design Center opens the door to powerful knowledge-based IT infrastructure management without the need to immediately learn a new language. It enables system administrators to "stand in the shoulders of giants" by seamlessly reusing the knowledge and code of peers who have performed similar tasks before, and also to contribute their own knowledge back to the community. It makes it possible to set up a fully-operational CFEngine infrastructure without the need to touch a single line of CFEngine code.

Today, the CFEngine team is announcing CFEngine 3 Enterprise. With the major part of the CFEngine 3 technology being in an open source core, our exploratory commercial edition, was originally dubbed `CFEngine Nova' -- the `New star in configuration management'. Today, CFEngine 3 is no longer a newcomer, but a proven solution in datacentres around the world. With today's launch, CFEngine 3 Enterprise leaves orbit and begins its voyage to manage an ever expanding universe of IT.
