The University of Texas at Austin, ITS
Senior Systems Administrator
Chris Bowles has been in the computer biz since the days of OS/2 and micro channel architecture. His guiding principal is to empower the right people to do the right thing in the right (safe) environment and Puppet has been the perfect tool to make that happen.
Chris spearheads a project in the ITS Systems group at the University of Texas at Austin to modernize and centralize what was a very decentralized configuration management environment. Puppet Enterprise was chosen by the group and is in the final stages of implementation at UT.
He has very actively been involved with using, architecting and developing Puppet for the last year, and learns something new about Puppet every day.
