Florian Haas, CEO, Principal Consultant from Hastexo joined Chris Hoge, OpenStack Developer for Puppet Labs, and Dawn Foster, Community Lead at Puppet Labs for a discussion during OSCON on the love affair between OpenStack and Puppet.
"The reason why we find Puppet particularly interesting and appealing," says Florian, "is that when we look at all these tools, Puppet has a massive mindshare ... there's some very interesting work that has been done there."
At Puppet Labs we've been maintaining a set of modules that allow you to deploy a whole OpenStack system with Puppet, but it's part of a much larger body of contributors. The modules are a community effort, developed under the OpenStack StackForge community.
The OpenStack Tour de Force tutorial during OSCON used these modules as part of KickStack. KickStack is a custom deployment wrapper built on the Puppet Labs OpenStack modules, which enables installation of an Openstack cloud in as little as 20 minutes
