We recently sat down with Devon Peters, a tools engineer at Jive Software to talk about how they use MCollective for orchestration along with Puppet to manage their infrastructure. You might remember Devon from his recent PuppetConf talk, "Intro to Systems Orchestration with MCollective." We were joined by Pieter Loubser and Richard Clamp from the MCollective engineering team here at Puppet Labs to talk about a wide variety of orchestration topics.
This was a fun podcast because we talked about some of the performance problems Jive Software has faced in the past, along with how the team here at Puppet Labs is working closely with Jive Software to improve MCollective performance, which will benefit a lot of other companies as well. We also talked about the future of MCollective and other things we are doing to improve the product.

You can also join us in the community on the MCollective-Users Group or in the #mcollective IRC channel on Freenode to ask questions or just learn more about how people are using MCollective.
