Puppet is an enterprise systems management platform that standardizes the way you deploy and manage infrastructure in the enterprise and the cloud.
By the end of the tutorial we’ll produce a simple Puppet architecture that can manage a few services and applications as well as discuss best practices and common design patterns.
This session will demonstrate an example scenario from Janrain and discuss the implications, benefits, and pitfalls of moving to a utility cloud computing architecture from a traditional co-located hosting environment.
Vagrant is a tool for building and distributing virtualized development environments. It uses VirtualBox combined with configuration management to deliver fast and portable development and testing environments. I'll demonstrate how to use Vagrant and Puppet to easily build environments that you can deploy (and re-deploy) to developers and testers.
