Managing Your Puppet 2019 Infrastructure

by Agaba Philip

If you’ve grown rather weary of classifying your nodes in the default manifest through roles and profiles, you’re just about ready to make the switch to Enterprise Puppet. This course will get you up to speed on the enterprise features of Puppet.

What you'll learn

As your infrastructure grows from hundreds to thousands of nodes, you may begin to find open source Puppet insufficient and may be ready to make the switch to Puppet Enterprise. In this course, Managing Your Puppet 2019 Infrastructure, you’ll learn to automate your infrastructure using Puppet Enterprise. First, you’ll move your classification code out of roles and profiles, into node data. Next, you’ll discover how to switch between multiple environments, as well as orchestrate your tasks and plans. Finally, you’ll learn how to export resources, and write useful Puppet queries. When you’re finished with this course, you’ll have the skills to manage a Puppet infrastructure of any size, and you’ll be able to easily extend your Puppet knowledge through the official documentation. As a bonus, you'll be ready to take-on the PPT-206 PCP exam.
