Puppet Overview

Puppet is written in Ruby language and was developed by Puppet Labs, founded by Luke Kanies in 2005. Currently Puppet is supported by Puppet Labs and it is licensed under GPLv2 until version 2.7.0 and Apache 2.0 license after that. Puppet is involved in scripting of deployment of production system.

Puppet is used to control an entire server starting from installation, configuration, managing, and maintaining server. Puppet can manage thousands of hosts. Install Puppet agent on hosts and then define the hosts in Puppet master server. All other tasks like installation, configuration, and so on will be done by Puppet automatically.

Puppet Training is opted for quick and fast deployment of business applications both on-premise and in the cloud as it can quickly scale from tens of servers to thousands.

Puppet Features

Idempotency, One big difference between Puppet real time scenarios and most other tools is that Puppet configurations are idempotent, meaning they can safely be run multiple times. Once you develop your configuration, your machines will apply the configuration often – by default, every 30 minutes – and Puppet will only make any changes to the system if the system state does not match the configured state. If you tell the system to operate in no-op (“aka dry-run”), mode, using the –noop argument to one of the Puppet tools, puppet will guarantee that no work happens on your system. Similarly, if any changes do happen when running without that flag, puppet will ensure those changes are logged. Because of this, you can use Puppet to manage a machine throughout its life cycle – from initial installation, to ongoing upgrades, and finally to end-of-life, where you move services elsewhere. Unlike system install tools like Sun’s Jumpstart or Red Hat’s Kickstart, Puppet configurations can keep machines up to date for years, rather than just building them correctly only the first time and then neccessitating a rebuild. Puppet users usually do just enough with their host install tools to boostrap Puppet, then they use Puppet to do everything else.

Cross Platform, Puppet’s Resource Abstraction Layer (RAL) allows you to focus on the parts of the system you care about, ignoring implementation details like command names, arguments, and file formats – your tools should treat all users the same, whether the user is stored in NetInfo or /etc/passwd. We call these system entities resources. Ralsh, listed in the Tools section is a fun way to try out the RAL before you get too deep into Puppet language.

After the completion of Puppet Training course, trainee will be able to :

  • Maximize excellence approach to manage infrastructure.
  • Learn to deploy basic system configurations.
  • Ability to configure a virtual machine .
  • Familiarity with Operating System Concepts.
  • Deploy basic system configurations using best practices for Puppet.
  • Design their own infrastructure and define their own way to implement Puppet.

Puppet lets any business to achieve and manage its infrastructure completely.

  • Infrastructure configurations can be broken down into components.
  • Modules in Puppet typically breakdown to classes and resources.
  • Puppet builds a dependency graph with lot of unique features in the background.
  • In puppet, resource dependencies are always explicit.

How does Puppet Work

Puppet is a declarative language which means the result needed is to be configured inside of Puppet. Interview Questions on Puppet will define the desired infrastructure and simulate the configuration once before executing them. After enforcing the action it would then report any differences in the actual and desired state which can be then resolved.

As system administrators acquire more and more systems to manage, automation of mundane tasks is increasingly important. Rather than develop in-house scripts, it is desirable to share a system that everyone can use, and invest in tools that can be used regardless of one’s employer. Certainly doing things manually doesn’t scale. Puppet has been developed to help the sysadmin community move to building and sharing mature tools that avoid the duplication of everyone solving the same problem.

It does so in two ways: It provides a powerful framework to simplify the majority of the technical tasks that sysadmins need to perform

-The sysadmin work is written as code in Puppet’s custom language which is shareable just like any other code.

-This means that your work as a sysadmin can get done much faster, because you can have Puppet handle most or all of the details, and you can download code from other sysadmins to help you get done even faster. The majority of Puppet implementations use at least one or two modules developed by someone else, and there are already hundreds of modules developed and shared by the community.

Puppet training online is aimed at Targeted Audience with a thorough introduction to the whole of Puppet tutorials via interactive medium.

  • System Administrators
  • Practitioners
  • Architects
  • Professionals who are looking to extend their knowledge towards advanced technologies.

There are no specific prerequisites for Puppet Training and Certification. However,

  • Functional knowledge in Linux Puppet,
  • Equivalent experience in Unix/Linux Administration,
  • Little/No experience with Puppet Enterprise, are an added advantage. 

The Puppet Training videos and Puppet Training material are carefully developed in such a way that even a fresher can easily understand and learn the product at his/her own pace.
