What have we been up to at Puppet Labs?
We released PuppetDB, a high performance database for storing and querying
the data that Puppet generates including the DAG that we produce. This is
going to be a key component leveraging the power of our dependency graph
for insight and cross node dependency and configuration management. We are
already doing a lot of awesome things with PuppetDB, it is super fast and a
drop serves as a drop in replacement for Storedconfigs.
We released Razor, a bare metal provisioning tool built in partnership with
EMC. Razor aims to allow you to automatically inventory your hardware using
Facter and an in memory kernel. Once inventoried operating systems can be
deployed to the inventory via a Restful API. Once the OS is provisioned,
Puppet takes over the rest of the configuration.
We added Windows support to Puppet and Puppet Enterprise.
The Telly release of Puppet is just about out of the door with a big focus
on performance and integration of Hiera.
RC6 is available here.
Finally, a little promotion, we have PuppetConf coming up in SF Sept 27/28.
We are incredibly humbled by the speaker line up and what our customers and
community are accomplishing with the Puppet platform. We will have live
demos of Razor, new Google Compute Integration (think Cloudformation
written in Puppet Lang) and a workshops on device management with Puppet.
