Closing the Loop: Direct Change Control with Puppet – Nick Lewis, Puppet

Configuration management can be roughly divided into two basic problems: change what needs to change, keep the rest the same. Puppet provides a single way to talk about both of those problems and so we often treat them as a single concern. Typical change workflows make change as part of regularly scheduled remediation runs, making it difficult to know if and where a change has happened. In this session, we'll learn how to use Puppet Enterprise change orchestration to take direct control over when and how change happens. At the same time, we'll discuss how being intentional about change can make us more confident about what should stay the same.
