Deploy Puppet on Google Compute Engine with a click

By Brian Goldfarb Today, we’re making it even easier to deploy Open Source Puppet on Google Compute Engine with Click to Deploy. Now you can quickly set up a Puppet master configured with node_gce and gce_compute modules to provision and manage resources on Compute Engine.

Whether you’re managing one virtual machine or thousands, Puppet can help make system configuration easier. Puppet is a declarative language for expressing system configuration, coupled with an agent/master framework for distributing and enforcing the configuration. In a typical web server deployment, for example, you can define how you’d like Apache configured, and then deploy it to multiple virtual machines easily. Puppet is used by more than 22,000 companies around the world and Puppet Forge has more than 3,100 modules for provisioning and managing a wide variety of system resources.

“We’re excited to see Google recognize the benefits and pervasiveness of Puppet, making it the first IT automation tool available as a Click to Deploy solution. This solution lowers the time required to get a functional Puppet master up and running and is the first step toward fully automating the management of projects in Google Compute Engine,” said Nigel Kersten, CIO of Puppet Labs.
