This talk will be a modified and updated version of the talk given at Puppet Camp Amsterdam. I will discuss some technical examples of how to use Puppet to manage large infrastructures in Amazon's cloud, as well as giving some background in to how Puppet fits in to the AWS ecosystem. Further topics include: - OpsWorks (Amazon's Chef-based configuration management offering) and what it means for Puppet - using Puppet in conjunction with CloudFormation - using Puppet to automate common AWS tasks, such as building AMIs - using Vagrant and Puppet to create an easy path from local development to production - common pitfalls and workarounds.
- You've got enough to worry about without adding the hundreds or thousands of dynamic resources cloud applications demand. Puppet Enterprise makes it easier to provision and configure public & private clouds
- Robust orchestration is key to cloud automation. Learn how the Puppet Enterprise 3.0 orchestration engine scales admin know-how to work at the scale demanded by the cloud.
- PuppetConf 2014 will be back in San Francisco. Developer Day will be held September 22, PuppetConf will be held September 23-24. Save the date!
