Puppet is a configuration management system that allows you to define the state of your application's infrastructure as code. This enables automation of the process of configuring, managing, and maintaining your servers. Puppet uses a declarative language to describe system configuration, which allows you to manage all aspects of the operating system: from package installation to service configuration and user management.
Technical Aspects of Puppet
Puppet operates on a client-server model, where the 'agent' is the client part, installed on the managed device, and the 'master' is the server where the configuration is stored.
This means that the configuration can be applied multiple times without causing additional changes to the system.
Puppet supports multiple operating systems and cloud platforms.
Puppet has a modular architecture, which allows code to be broken into logical parts and reused across different projects.
Features of Puppet
Puppet allows managing dependencies between resources, which simplifies the process of configuring complex systems.
Using Puppet allows versioning of the configuration, which makes it possible to revert to the previous state of the system in case of errors.
Puppet supports templating of configuration files, which allows using the same code for configuring different systems.
Integration with other tools
Puppet can be integrated with other tools, such as Git, Jenkins, Docker, etc.
There are many ready-made modules available on Puppet Forge, the Puppet community, which reduces the need to create configuration from scratch.
Our experience using Puppet on projects
In our company, we used Puppet for automating configuration management on many projects. We found its idempotency and dependency management capabilities particularly useful. This allowed us to quickly and reliably deploy changes in infrastructure, minimizing the possibility of errors. We also applied templating to simplify configuration management in different environments: testing, staging, and production. Thanks to integration with other tools, such as Git and Jenkins, we were able to automate the entire software delivery process.
