Deploying with confidence

Self-Service

Combining Puppet, Foreman, Pulp, Candlepin, and Katello lets you deploy software and servers automatically and securely.

In last month’s column, I talked about finding and remediating security problems; this month, I will continue with administrative automation. Security remediation is great, but at some point, you need the servers to do useful things like run software, process data, and so on. So, how do you efficiently control hundreds or thousands of systems, deploy and distribute software, and make configuration changes as needed? Of course, you can’t just deploy stuff straight to production and hope for the best, so you’ll probably want to support separate development, testing, and production groups at a minimum.
