 Puppet: What it is and how can it make system administration less painful

 Please join us on Wednesday, November 18th, 2009 for a discussion of
 Reductive Labs' Centralized configuration management framework, Puppet.

 Puppet is a model-driven open source framework designed to efficiently
 manage data center infrastructure.  It's the sysadmin's best friend,
 reducing error counts and downtime, saving countless hours and providing
 significantly higher service quality.  Puppet lets sysadmins spend less
 time on mundane tasks and instead focus on managing their infrastructure
 as a whole.

 System administrators have long written custom scripts and tools to help
 automate common tasks such as configuration management and system updates.
 But as networks scale and reach outside the corporate firewall, custom
 tools become yet another management headache.

 The benefits of automated infrastructure go beyond policy-enforced
 consistency and auditing.  In conjunction with virtualizaton, the ability
 to reliably create new systems running consistent services creates
 auto-scaling applications as well as test systems identical to production

 Puppet abstracts the system from the system administration, providing
 developers and system administrators with a simple service-based policy
 framework that allows for more consistent, transparent and flexible

 Puppet is currently in use at many organizations, large and small,
 including: Google, Yahoo, and RedHat.
