This talk will be a modified and updated version of the talk given at Puppet Camp Amsterdam. I will discuss some technical examples of how to use Puppet to manage large infrastructures in Amazon's cloud, as well as giving some background in to how Puppet fits in to the AWS ecosystem. Further topics include: - OpsWorks (Amazon's Chef-based configuration management offering) and what it means for Puppet - using Puppet in conjunction with CloudFormation - using Puppet to automate common AWS tasks, such as building AMIs - using Vagrant and Puppet to create an easy path from local development to production - common pitfalls and workarounds
