At the end of 2014 Continuent was acquired by VMware. In early 2015 a project was started to move the current build and QA environment from a mix of AWS, Rackspace and dedicated hosts into a new internal vSphere ESXi environment. This involved converting around 50 hosts into an environment containing over a 1000 VMs while not impacting the day-to-day operations. This talk will cover * Why we use puppet and the lessons learned in implementing it. * Control users and networks. * Using PuppetDB to automatically manage DNS and Nagios services. * Managing Jenkins instances to automatically add and remove testing clusters and environments. * Deploying MySQL, Oracle, Vertica, Hadoop in various testing configurations.
