Course Overview
Hello, and welcome to Managing your Puppet Infrastructure. My name is Agaba Philip, and I'm happy to be your guide on this wonderful journey. If you're responsible for hundreds or thousands of servers in your enterprise, the odds are good that your infrastructure has outgrown the capabilities of the open source version of Puppet. This course helps you transition from Puppet open source to the enterprise version. Some of the things that I'm going to be showing you in this course include classifying your agents and node groups, deploying your code through the code manager, switching between multiple environments, and orchestrating Puppet plans. By the end of this course, you'll be able to manage your servers and services using the convenient and price‑specific features of the most popular configuration management software. If you haven't been through the previous course, Writing and Deploying Puppet Modules, you may have a hard time following this course. After consuming this material, you should be ready to take on the Puppet VCP 206 certification exam. Thank you for joining me on the road to managing your Puppet infrastructure right here, on Pluralsight.
