Infrastructure-as-Code with Puppet Enterprise in the Cloud - Evan Scheessele, HP

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In this approachable talk, we tell the story of one business’s cloud-journey: We used Puppet Enterprise as a customer of the OpenStack-based HP Helion Public Cloud to manage a portfolio of enterprise applications. Our project’s underlying objective was to foster business agility via "infrastructure-as-code"—and so these past 12 months, our small team retooled our organization’s web services operations around Puppet and pervasive automation.

With Puppet, we adopted end-to-end transformation of our pipelines for application provisioning on top of HP’s Helion OpenStack cloud platform, and as a result we benefited from hyper-consistent configuration management running atop continuous delivery of cloud infrastructure stacks. Results: push-button, E2E deployment automation from nothing to running, configured apps.

We will talk about deep integration with PuppetDB, and Puppet roles and profiles across our portfolio of diverse applications. We've also leveraged Hiera, extending it with Hiera-HTTP to make a developer portal that allows product teams self-service control over stacks' data configuration management.
