In this talk you'll learn about three common scenarios where Puppet amplifies the power and flexibility of new and existing virtualization technologies. First, traditional virtualization techniques such as VMware and Xen provide repeatability and consistency through golden images. Puppet helps minimize the sprawling nature of these images and provides management through their entire

Second, with new virtualization technologies such as Linux containers, the golden image problem has been greatly improved with tools like Docker. In this new scenario, Puppet provides the ability to audit and report on the state of the running container over the entire lifecycle.

Finally, Puppet provides an extremely powerful language and collection of existing modules to easily migrate from "heavy" virtual machines to the new lightweight containers. Come see how Forge modules deploy the same software stack into both traditional VMs and lightweight containers, quickly and easily.
