Building Data-Driven Infrastructure with Puppet

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

As your Puppet Infrastructure grows, so does the complexity of the Puppet codebase. The complexity of the codebase often creates a scenario where it becomes more time consuming to modify/add to the codebase. Likewise, any new addition or node still may require modifications to the Puppet database, which could include the management of many edge cases. Fortunately, the software industry has been working on developing techniques with code abstraction, refactoring, and software maturity. This talk will focus on how to write scalable modules within Puppet to be used to create Data Driven Infrastructures. In addition, this talk will demonstrate how to structure process/procedure/code to quickly and rapidly scale operations with minimal modifications to Puppet code.
