Every month, more than 215 million people play games made by Zynga -- that’s 10 percent of the world’s internet population enjoying Farmville, Mafia Wars, Zynga Poker, FrontierVille and more. TechCrunch reported in September that Zynga’s properties move 1 petabyte of data every day and are adding as many as 1,000 servers each week. To accommodate their growing traffic, Zynga uses Puppet for configuration management for their tens of thousands of machines.
Mark Stockford, Vice President of Production Operations at Zynga said:
Puppet is fantastic at configuration management and everyone is really excited about it. We selected Puppet for its flexibility, features and ease of use.
We’re always happy to hear how you’re using Puppet, so send us your story.
