Dynamic Orchestration w/ PuppetDB, Puppet 3.0, and an Intro to CloudFormation
We will be having three talks:
1) Dynamic Orchestration without using Exported Resources by Rob Terhaar
2) Puppet 3.0 mini-review by James Sweeney
3) "Spinning up a Stack" an Introduction to AWS CloudFormation by Brian Gupta (time permitting)
Rob Terhaar will be speaking about how to use the Puppet DB query module to lookup data from puppetdb, e.g.,(https://github.com/dalen/puppet-puppetdbquery
An example: Let's say we wanted to get a list of the IP addresses from all of the nodes in our environment, where fact role is "nagios", and the made-up size fact is "large"
$nagios_ips = query_nodes('role=nagios and size=large', ipaddress)
The talk itself would be some examples like that, and discussion about what's happening under the covers and a couple of examples how it can be practically used.
James will be giving our group a quick overview of the new features and changes in Puppet 3.0.
"Spinning up a Stack" an Introduction to AWS CloudFormation by Brian Gupta
CloudFormation gives developers and system administrators an easy way to describe and provision collections of AWS resources. In thispresentation, we'll breakdown what CloudFormation is, the components of CloudFormation, and give a live demonstration of CloudFormation in use.
We'll also share some example code, answer questions, and walk through the process of creating and managing your own templates.
