Case Study Video: Puppet at Constant Contact
Over time our Puppet infrastructure has expanded from vanilla system management to include application server datasources, then distributed systems such as our 72-node Cassandra cluster, and finally to full-fledged automated configuration management of our custom-built applications and services (think applications as appliances).
Puppet is now a first-class-citizen in our software development process. Development teams deliver Puppet manifests alongside deployables describing configuration and deployment steps (configuration as code). Puppet is now in control of all the artifacts (code, config..etc) required for an individual application or service.
We'll tell the story how our Puppet implementation continues to evolve the meet the needs of a dynamic and fast-paced business.
