OpenNebulaConf2014: Puppet and OpenNebula by Puppet Labs’ David Lutterkort

David Lutterkort, Principal Engineer at Puppet Labs, will give a keynote entitled “Puppet and OpenNebula” in the upcoming OpenNebulaConf 2014 to be held in Berlin on the 2-4 of December.

This talk will show how Puppet can be used by adminsitrators to manage OpenNebula hosts, and by users to manage their infrastructure as well as how to use Puppet during image builds. Many facets of using an IaaS cloud like OpenNebula can be greatly simplified by using a configuration management tool such as Puppet. This includes the management of hosts as well as the management of cloud resources such as virtual machines and networks. Of course, Puppet can also play an important role in the management of the actual workload of virtual machine instances. Besides using it in the traditional, purely agent-based way, it is also possible to use Puppet during the building of machine images. This serves two purposes: firstly, it speeds up the initial Puppet run when an instance is launched off that image, sometimes quite dramatically. Secondly, it supports operating immutable infrastructure without losing Puppet’s benefits to organize and simplify the description of the entire infrastructure.

David is a principal engineer at Puppet Labs and the technical lead for Puppet Labs’ development of Razor. Before joining Puppet Labs, David worked at Red Hat on a variety of management tools and served as the maintainer of Apache Deltacloud. He was one of the earliest contributors to Puppet, and is the main author of the Augeas configuration management tool.
