Managing Infrastructure with Puppet

Book Description

One of the most powerful tools in modern infrastructure management is a well designed configuration management framework. In this ebook, I’ll cover the basics of the puppet automation system with a focus on practical deployment and documentation of system configurations. The major topics will include Puppet manifest syntax and built in functions, implementation techniques, module and class management, node information with Facter, and orchestration with MCollective. Specific code examples will be used wherever possible and reference commonly deployed web software on linux.
