Puppet: What it is and how can it make system administration less
** Please note important information about: this meeting **
Please join us on Wednesday, November 18th, 2009 for a discussion
of Reductive Labs' Centralized configuration management framework,
Puppet is a model-driven open source framework designed to
efficiently manage data center infrastructure. It's the sysadmin's
best friend, reducing error counts and downtime, saving countless
hours and providing significantly higher service quality. Puppet lets
sysadmins spend less time on mundane tasks and instead focus on
managing their infrastructure as a whole.
System administrators have long written custom scripts and tools
to help automate common tasks such as configuration management and
system updates. But as networks scale and reach outside the corporate
firewall, custom tools become yet another management headache.
The benefits of automated infrastructure go beyond policy-enforced
consistency and auditing. In conjunction with virtualizaton, the
ability to reliably create new systems running consistent services
creates auto-scaling applications as well as test systems identical to
Puppet abstracts the system from the system administration,
providing developers and system administrators with a simple service-
based policy framework that allows for more consistent, transparent
and flexible systems.
Puppet is currently in use at many organizations, large and small,
including: Google, Yahoo, and RedHat.
