Operating at scale with puppet by separating data from code

When: Thursday, September 26, 2013, 6:30 PM

Where: The Ladders - 137 Varick St. 8th Floor, New York, NY (edit map)

Managing over 10k nodes brings unique challenges, one of them is
managing all data in a scalable way, but solving the scalability issue
isn't enough. The data must be available and manageable in a user
friendly way. This talk is about how we successfully implemented a
solution using Hiera, Redis, Sensu, Rails and Grape that made us
capable of managing the infrastructure without altering puppet
manifests and providing our customers with the ability to not only
manage their own data but also build their own applications to manage
their infrastructure using our API.
