Configuration Management with Puppet

With the rollout of the server virtualization, we seeked a way to automatically setup and configure new servers. My task was to evaluate and compare different configuration management solutions and migrate our existing configurations to the new solution. Based on the evaluation, we decided to use Puppet as configuration management software. The migration was an ongoing project when I left ETH Zurich.
