Improve Infrastructure With Puppet
Deploying software and managing infrastructure is a race and the winners are able to scale and deliver value quickly. This is why all infrastructure, whether public cloud, private cloud, on-premise or hybrid, should have the ability to be flexible and allow for innovation.
In order to gain or maintain a competitive edge, teams need to implement DevOps and a system of continuous integration / continuous delivery (CI/CD). Using and managing infrastructure needs configuration management and that’s where Puppet comes in. Configuration Management is crucial to the success of a DevOps or CI/CD implementation, and Puppet is one of the most common configuration management tools available to enterprise. SPK has years of DevOps and Puppet experience and can help you manage your infrastructure in order to deliver consistent and quality digital products.

How Does Puppet Work?
Puppet is a configuration management tool, which is systems engineering process for establishing consistency of a product’s attributes throughout its life. In this case, Puppet accomplishes the management of an IT environment by installing a Puppet agent on the nodes of the network you want to manage. This allows the Puppet master environment to collect data about the nodes, which are considered Facts. This hub-and-spoke method allows an administrator to make changes to one type of Puppet configuration and have it deploy to hundreds or thousands of nodes in it’s network. This network can be a mixture of device types (servers, routers, switches, workstations, laptops, etc) and network types (i.e. on-premise servers, virualized environments, public or private cloud).
Our experts will review your implementation (if it’s an existing environment) along with the code base and related systems, processes and workflows This part of our engagement includes interviewing stakeholders for business and technology goals and outcomes.
With the key situation mapped out, along with business and technology goals identified, our team will target the changes needed to be made to the systems and configurations in order to improve the outcomes.
Lastly, our team will help implement the targeted changes and determine the right best practices for alignment moving forward. This also includes admin training and post implementation support, which could be more admin or support training or on-going managed services.
