PuppetConf track overview: Modern Infrastructure

  1. 1. t Track Overview: Modern Infrastructure 19 - 21 October San Diego
  2. 2. Service Discovery and Puppet Want to know how to allow Puppet to react to dynamically changing platforms? In this talk we will take you from the basics of what service discovery is, all the way to real life examples of dynamically changing configuration managed through Puppet. 2 Thursday, October 20 | 11:15 am Modern Infrastructure DevOps Hacker, Ukon Cherry Marc Cluet
  3. 3. Using Puppet With Kubernetes and OpenShift OpenShift is Red Hat's Platform-as-a-Service that allows developers to quickly develop, host, and scale applications in a cloud environment. OpenShift is also available in an open source distribution called OpenShift Origin. OpenShift provides an integrated set of tools for managing your container-based applications, everything from deployment to container repositories to access control and built-in metrics and monitoring services. Since V3, OpenShift has been built around Kubernetes, the cluster manager released by Google. Red Hat have been one of the main contributors to the open source Kubernetes project since its release. Puppet recently released a module for managing Kubernetes resources (like Pods, Replication Controllers and Services) using Puppet. In this briefing, we'll look at how you can use that module to power your OpenShift-based PaaS. 3 Friday, October 21 | 1:30 pm Diane Mueller Daniel Dreier Senior SysOps Engineer, Puppet Director, Community Development, Red Hat Modern Infrastructure
  4. 4. The Challenges with Container Configuration Introducing containers into your infrastructure brings new capabilities, but also new challenges, in particular around configuration. This talk will take a look under the hood at some of those operational challenges including: * The difference between runtime and build-time configuration, and the importance of relating the two together. * Configuration drift, immutable mental models and mutable container file systems. * Who configures the orchestrators? * Emergent vs. model driven configuration. In the process we will identify some common problems and talk about potential solutions. And we'll show some demos along the way too. 4 Thursday, October 20 | 2:30 pm David Lutterkort Principal Software Engineer, Puppet Modern Infrastructure
  5. 5. Docker, Mesos, Kubernetes, and...Puppet? Don't panic! Because Puppet is a common language for delivering and operating modern infrastructure, organizations that rely on Puppet find it easier to adopt new technologies. Project Blueshift represents Puppet's engagement with our community – as well as with leading-edge technologies like Docker, Kubernetes and Mesos, and their communities – to make it possible to use Puppet to provide and manage next generation software in a simple, reliable, and consistent way. We'll discuss the current state and future plans for Blueshift, and talk about the relationship between puppet and all the shiny new things happening in the operations universe. 5 Thursday, October 20 | 4:45 pm Deepak Giridharagopal CTO, Puppet Modern Infrastructure
  6. 6. There is a Storm Coming: Untangling the Strings of Your Puppet This session aims to discuss how the complexity on your Puppet repository can frustrate your team and the new hires. The importance of step back once in awhile and take a look at the path your repository is taking and how meaningful tools like Pull requests, and code review are for a team. 6 Friday, October 21 | 11:15 am Rhommel Lamas Site Reliability Engineer, Ebay Classifieds / Gumtree AU Modern Infrastructure
  7. 7. Friday, October 21 | 1:30 pm Gareth Rushgrove Running Puppet Software in Docker Containers Containers are an increasingly interesting way of packaging and running software. What happens if we package Puppet software into containers? What challenges arise and what new capabilities present themselves? In this demo-heavy talk we will: * Package up Puppet software (like Puppet Server, Puppet agents, PuppetDB and more) as Docker containers. * Demonstrate Puppet running on container-centric operating systems like CoreOS, using containers as the runtime. * Stand up various Puppet stacks using Docker Compose. * Show how to run Puppet software on top of cluster managers like Kubernetes. * Discuss a number development and testing use cases that are made easier using containers. 7 Senior Software Engineer, Puppet Modern Infrastructure
  8. 8. Heresy in the Church of Docker Docker (and by extension, microservices-based architecture) has expanded our horizons with respect to how the industry builds and supports applications at scale, which helps to explain why so many people seem willing to throw away decades of experience in favor of untested tools and barely functional design principles. In this entertaining and somewhat irreverent talk, Corey presents the "other side" of the containerization craze: how configuration management fits into a world consumed by the DockerDockerDocker madness, how "containers all the way down" can blow up in your face when you least expect it, and how promising technologies should perhaps be vetted a bit more thoroughly before you try to run a hospital on top of them. 8 Friday, October 21 | 3:45 pm Corey Quinn Director of DevOps, FutureAdvisor / BlackRock Modern Infrastructure
