About the Book
Puppet is a configuration management technology to manage the infrastructure on physical or virtual machines. It is an open-source software configuration management tool developed using Ruby which helps in managing complex infrastructure on the fly.
This tutorial will help in understanding the building blocks of Puppet and how it works in an infrastructure environment. All the examples and code snippets used in this tutorial are tested. The working code snippets can be simply used in any Puppet setup by changing the current defined names and variables.
This tutorial has been prepared for those who want to understand the features and functionality of Puppet and how it can help in reducing the complexity of managing an infrastructure.
After completing this tutorial one would gain moderate level understanding of Puppet and its workflow. It will also give you a fair idea on how to configure Puppet in a preconfigured infrastructure and use it for automation.
We assume anyone who wants to understand and learn Puppet should have an understanding of the system administration, infrastructure, and network protocol communication. To automate the infrastructure provisioning, one should have a command over basic Ruby script writing and the underlying system where one wants to use Puppet.
