Puppet Architect Training Course

Summary

In Puppet Architect students will learn how to design their own infrastructure and define their own right way to implement Puppet.

Description

Note: This is an advanced level course.

This course is designed to provide practical skills used to architect Puppet infrastructure and to understand interactions between different components. The class will focus on the architecture of Puppet Enterprise itself, giving students the ability to determine the most efficient and extensible architecture to scale Puppet to their own needs with API integration and monitoring to support its growth.

Objectives

After completing this course students will be able to architect a robust Puppet infrastructure integrated with external tooling and scale up to meet growing business demands. They will be able to evaluate design patterns and workflow alternatives and develop policies that work well for their own organization.

Audience

In this course, we expect students to have an intimate understanding of their site needs and have a reasonable idea of how they can use Puppet to manage their infrastructure. They should be expert sysadmins with an understanding of the operating system and the impact of various tuning techniques.

The course is designed for site architects and DevOps professionals with a solid understanding of configuration management strategies and sysadmin skills. Understanding the Puppet DSL is useful, but mastery is not required.
