It is no surprise that automation and orchestration make life very easy, be it a small organization or a large-scale industry that houses hundreds of servers. IT automation is essentially the ability to orchestrate and integrate tools, people, and processes through a certain workflow. Automation with Ansible, Puppet, and Salt is a Learning Path that looks at the most popular tools for automation, their advantages, and how you can use each of these tools to automate your IT infrastructure effectively.
Packt's Video Learning Paths are a series of individual video products put together in a logical and stepwise manner such that each video builds on the skills learned in the video before it.
In this one, we'll cover the why and how of Ansible, Puppet, and Salt, in a step-by-step, progressive manner. Initially, we focus on Ansible. You will learn how to manage environments and implement strategies in Ansible and be introduced to Ansible Galaxy and Tower, which are Ansible's enterprise tooling for supporting large-scale infrastructure. We then move on to learning Puppet. Puppet is a configuration management tool that allows you to automate all your IT configurations. Using Puppet you can control each Puppet agent in a network. You will learn how to do so by first understanding the Puppet ecosystem and then detailed topics such as configuration and management of Puppet servers, environments, module repositories, and reusable modules. With Salt too, we use a similar approach. We start from the basics, such as installing, configuring, deploying, and managing a web application to advanced concepts like Docker containers across multiple systems behind a HAProxy load balancer.
By the end of this Learning Path, you will be able to build and manage your infrastructure and fully utilize its potential.
