Everything in the world will be be automated, also IT infrastructure.
This blogging site is used to tell you about my experience with automation. Mostly I will tell you about IT infrastructure automation with puppet. In 2017 I want to be certified in puppet. I will blogging about setting up a Puppet infrastructure, respectively setting up the puppet master, puppet client, puppetdb server and al the other automation stuff which come to my path.

What is Puppet?

Puppet is an open source configuration management tool that helps you to manage the configurations of hundreds of client systems from the central location. Puppet makes the admin’s life easier by reducing time spending on repetitive task and allows them to concentrate on other works, also ensures that the deployed configuration are consistent across the infrastructure.

Puppet is available for Linux, Mac, BSD, Solaris and Windows-based computer Systems, released under Apache License, written in “Ruby” language.

Puppet master server.

In my next blog I will tell about setting up a puppet master server.
