About the Author:

John Arundel is an infrastructure consultant who helps people make their computer systems more reliable, useful, and cost-effective and has fun doing it. He was formerly a senior operations engineer at Verizon, designing resilient and high-performance infrastructures for corporations such as Ford, McDonald's, and Bank of America.

Puppet is IT automation software that helps system administrators manage infrastructure throughout its lifecycle, from provisioning and configuration to patch management and compliance. Using Puppet, it's easy to automate repetitive tasks, quickly deploy critical applications, and proactively manage change, scaling from 10s of servers to 1000s, on-premise or in the cloud.

Puppet 3 Beginner’s Guide gets readers up and running with Puppet straight away, using comprehensive real-world examples. Each chapter builds the readers skills, adding new Puppet features, always with a practical focus. Through a series of worked examples introducing Puppet to a fictional web company, readers will discover how to manage every aspect of the server setup. In addition, readers will also learn everything they need to manage their whole infrastructure with Puppet.

The book will enable readers to:

  • Install and configure the Puppet environment
  • Run Puppet on multiple servers
  • Deploy configuration files and templates for lightning-fast installations
  • Create and monitor reports and information
  • Manage user accounts, security, access control, and scheduled jobs
