Puppet Keynote by Ralph Luchs


Published on

In this presentation, we start by briefly talking about why configuration management and automation tools are becoming increasingly important along with our general approach and the community that supports it. We will also provide a comprehensive overview of the technologies used with Puppet, so expect to learn more about Puppet Enterprise, Puppet, PuppetDB, MCollective, Forge and more. Other programs that help people learn about Puppet, like training and certification programs are also included.

  21. 21. Easy to Get Involved • Help with Documentation • Ask/Answer questions • http://ask.puppetlabs.com • mailing lists • IRC • Help with bug triage • Contribute code • Contribute modules on the Forge puppetlabs.com/community
  22. 22. Puppet Enterprise
  23. 23. Innovation & Reliability: Open Source & Puppet Enterprise Environment for Nurturing Innovation Upstream Open Source Projects puppet mcollective facter +40 puppetdb hiera •~8,000 members •Latest technologies •Rapid release cycles •~1000s of changes / week •Community support (IRC, forums) smaller foss projects IT Automation for Business-Critical Apps Commercial Product puppet enterprise •Commercial-only functionality •Single, integrated solution •Graphical User Interface •Installer & upgrader •QA’d & security hardened •Performance tuning •API guarantees •Support & maintenance •Training & services
  24. 24. Puppet Enterprise Overview
  25. 25. Puppet Enterprise IT automation for end-to-end infrastructure lifecycle management Discovery of nodes, resources, and status using real-time data Provisioning of bare metal, virtual, and cloud capacity IT Automation Configuratio installation and configuration of n operating systems and applications and automated enforcement Orchestratio of multi-step operations to targeted n collections of nodes Reporting of all state changes of all resources across all nodes
  26. 26. Puppet Enterprise: Discovery Dynamic, real-time discovery of nodes, resources, and state Address all nodes simultaneously Query any data source on a node % mco find –S “environment=QA and !dept=sales” Nodes Puppet Classes & Facts Files & Databases System Queries puppet enterprise No More Outdated CMDBs Current deployment = source of truth Cloud Service APIs (eg, EC2) Ask Specific Questions Focus queries using booleans and regular expressions Scalable, Real-time Responses Asynchronous message busbased architecture
  27. 27. Puppet Enterprise: Provisioning Quickly stand-up private and public cloud infrastructure Provisions instances and install agents Agents register with master puppet enterprise Agents apply configurations Leverage Existing Work Re-use on-premise configs for cloud deployments Many Clouds, One Solution Avoid lock-in to cloud vendor-specific APIs Prevent Cloud Drift Maintain consistent environments between onpremise and the cloud
  28. 28. Puppet Enterprise: Configuration Improve agility and productivity through defining and enforcing a desired state 1. Define the desired state service { ‘ssh’: ensure => running, enable => true, subscribe => File[‘/etc/sshd_config’] } 2. Simulate configuration changes 4. Report on differences and any changes made puppet enterprise Current State Desired State 3. Enforce the deployed desired state – automatically
  29. 29. Puppet Enterprise: Orchestration Controlled, multi-step operations to targeted collections of nodes Goal: update Apache on all QA nodes Update 10% of nodes Update next 20% Wait 20 min 100% of nodes updated Wait 20 min Puppet Enterprise Dynamic Multi-step Operations Chain the outputs of one operation into the next Manage Change Rate Progressively apply changes to sub-sets of nodes Control Change Scope Apply changes only to specifically tagged nodes
  30. 30. Puppet Enterprise: Reporting Inventory and change data accessible via GUI and APIs Comprehensive Infrastructure Data Hardware and software inventory, change reports, configuration graphs Open Standards YAML, JSON, and .dot-formatted data accessible via RESTful API Rich Ecosystem of Tools Boundary, New Relic, Graphite, GraphViz, Gephi, and many more
  31. 31. Puppet Enterprise: Event Inspector Quickly understand and act on changes occurring in your infrastructure Know What Changed, Where, & How Visualize infrastructure changes by Nodes, Classes, and Resources Understand the Impact Drill-down, zoom-out to evaluate the scope of changes Take Action & Improve Service Levels Get the specifics to address and manage change
  32. 32. Puppet Enterprise: Role-Based Access Control Read-only, Read-write, and Admin roles Easy Set-up Quickly create new users through the Puppet Enterprise console GUI Easy Installation Select from Read-only, Read-write, or Admin roles Native Resource Support Users’ activities logged and auditable Third-Party Authentication Support LDAP, Active Directory, Google Apps
  33. 33. The Projects that Make Puppet Awesome
  34. 34. Puppet • Core project in the Puppet ecosystem • Idempotent, model-based configuration management • A simple language to describe state and an engine for enforcing it • Huge library of reusable modules on the Puppet Forge Puppet Enterprise built on top of Puppet
  35. 35. MCollective (mco) • • • • • Framework for server orchestration Parallel, real-time job execution Pluggable discovery of resources Target only the systems you want Extensible through simple Ruby agents Drives Orchestration Engine in Puppet Enterprise
  36. 36. PuppetDB • Foundation for applications that use Puppet data • Central storage for catalogs and facts that are part of your • • puppet infrastructure Incredibly fast replacement for existing ActiveRecord stored configs The most recent facts and catalog for every node Foundation for Puppet / Puppet Enterprise data storage
  37. 37. Hiera • • • • • Simple, pluggable Hierarchical Database Key/value lookup tool for configuration data Keeps site-specific data out of your manifests Puppet classes request data and Hiera will act like a site-wide config file Makes it easy to configure nodes, re-use Puppet modules and publish your modules Foundation for Puppet / Puppet Enterprise Hierarchical Data
  38. 38. Facter • Collects Facts about each system and uploads them to the Puppet master, making an inventory system and a way to make decisions in your Puppet code • Facts are available as variables in the Puppet DSL, like ‘$operatingsystem’ • Super easy to plug-in additional facts in Ruby • External Facts let you extend your inventory without Ruby: • shell, batch files or Powershell on windows, raw YAML Foundation for Puppet / Puppet Enterprise Inventory
  39. 39. Razor Provisioning • Rules-based provisioning for bare metal hardware and virtual • • • • • servers Developed in cooperation with EMC/VMWare Easily deployed via a puppet module from the Forge Automatically brings new servers into your puppet infrastructure Open, pluggable, and programmable Not yet ready for prime time - Help us get there by filing bugs and contributing to the community
