Managing CoreOS and Kubernetes with Puppet


Puppet probably isn't the first tool you think of when you want to manage your container infrastructure. But when you want to integrate containers into your existing infrastructure, address configuration drift, or model your infrastructure Puppet is the best tool for the job. While we tend to treat container infrastructure as immutable, in reality it isn't.  Third-party dependencies, persistent storage, and poorly-written applications can still change the state of your container and it's underlying OS in ways you don't expect, and cause things to break without you knowing what's running in the container or why it's breaking. Puppet can solve for this, providing security and assurance in your state and helping you have a hybrid infrastructure that's stable. This talk will cover the why, what, and how: why you would want to manage CoreOS and Kubernetes with Puppet, what use cases Puppet is most appropriate for, and how to set up an application running in a Kubernets cluster on CoreOS with Puppet.
