Puppet + Google Cloud: Migrating to the Cloud with Puppet

The easiest tool to use is the tool you already understand.

Google + Puppet have been building out a series of modules that allow you to construct your cloud infrastructure quickly using Puppet. You will learn how these modules will help you migrate quickly to the cloud, help you effortlessly scale your workflows, and leverage your institutional Puppet knowledge.
