Sourced Group is currently working with a highly-regulated Australian financial institution to provide them the capability of not only managing the SOE of their 4000-strong fleet, but also allowing external teams to write and consume modules at a fast pace for application deployment and management. With externally authored modules and user-driven node classification, every node in our fleet has the potential to be snowflake in need of ordered management. The central tool of choice for this undertaking: Puppet Enterprise. This talk will examine how recently-introduced Puppet features, alongside a modern deployment pipeline, have allowed us to achieve our fleet management goals, neatly integrate with the company's pre-existing cloud broker, and maintain the strict security and integrity boundaries mandated by this organization.
