Infrastructure deployment with Puppet

After few months of hard work with new approach to infrastructure deployment I can say that the choice of using Puppet was very good. We reached our goals like:

  • master-agent and masterless deployment,
  • model our physical infrastructure into hiera,
  • store facts, reports, exported resources, catalogs for each machine into PuppetDB,
  • easily split common puppet classes/resources to public repos and specific resources e.g SSL, apps configs into private one,
  • TDD using serverspec. Continuous integration with Travis
  • and many more...
