Puppet delivered the Puppet plugin for vRealize Automation (vRA) which accelerates the delivery and operation of infrastructure by giving you a fully automated self-service provisioning workflow between vRealize Automation and Puppet. By leveraging Puppet’s massive base of existing management content, you can rapidly deliver fully-configured machines to consumers. Fannie Mae has deployed Puppet Enterprise and vRA to directly give DevOps engineers self-service access to design, validate, and deploy fully configured multi-tier, customized environments. Attendees will gain an understanding of how to implement the Puppet plugin for vRA, manage classifications for traditional Puppet implementations, how Fannie Mae has extended the usage of the Puppet plugin to deliver vRA blueprints integrated with Puppet to dynamically pass configuration data to puppet modules. Key Takeaway 1: Puppet Orchestration plugin provides a supported solution giving organizations that have already deployed Puppet or are in the process to integrate with vRA. Key Takeaway 2: The Puppet plugin can be used out of the box for quick standard Puppet classifications by leveraging existing Puppet modules. Also how the plugin can be used and extended to support more advanced use cases integrated with complex vRA blueprints Key Takeaway 3: vRA and Puppet are a powerful tool for solving real world DevOps problems. The power of vRA blueprints combined with the server configuration management of puppet provide a great top down/bottom up approach to automated deployments. The Puppet plugin provides another tool to quickly deliver business value.
