"Accelerating Science with Puppet" by Tim Bell, Operating System and Infrastructure Manager at CERN. Talk given at PuppetConf 2012.
Abstract: This talk will review CERN's objectives and how the computing infrastructure is evolving to address the challenges at scale using community supported software such as Puppet and OpenStack.
Speaker Bio: Tim Bell is responsible for the CERN IT Operating System and Infrastructure Group which supports Windows, Mac and Linux across the site along with virtualisation, E-mail and web services. These systems are used by over 10,000 scientists researching fundamental physics, finding out what the Universe is made of and how it works. Prior to working at CERN, Tim worked for Deutsche Bank managing private banking infrastructure in Europe and for IBM as a Unix kernel developer and deploying large scale technical computing solutions.
