Scaling Puppet | Build your infrastructure

Puppet can manage a large number of systems and resources, however, a single Puppet-master can reach its limits on large or spread systems. In this training the attendees learn how to adjust the different components to high availability and scalable systems, how different environments and stages can be managed easily, and by which components the environment can be extended with further functions, or how the running of Puppet can be supported. The training will also give advice on recognizing problems and resolving them.

Target group:

The training is designed for administrators of large IT-environments with solid Puppet user-knowledge, who are in need of a divided setup to take some load of the system.


To ensure an aim-oriented and efficient realization of this training the number of participants is limited. This enables an intense examination of the course content and the opportunity to settle individual questions and problems.

The exchange between the participants is of particular importance for us. This is also the reason why all participants are invited to dinner so that a lot of scope for discussions and exchange of experience is allowed between the participants outside the workshop hours.
