"Using Puppet, Foreman and Git to Develop and Operate a Large Scale Internet Service (in this case eBuddy)" by Joost van de Wijgerd

At eBuddy we are implementing DevOps and in this talk I would like to introduce our current
setup. We use Foreman in combination with Puppet and a Custom Git based Configuration Management solution to manage our Infrastructure and the Services running on top of it. The talk will be centered around Foreman and Puppet and I will show how we use these tools to do deployments, scale out our clusters and configure new machines on the fly. Currently we manage four different datacenters with over 400 (physical) servers using this approach. Although eBuddy is a Java shop this talk should be interesting for anybody who is interested in Automating deployments and infrastructure management and how to integrate it in your Development Process.

Short Bio
Joost has been in the Industry since 1999 and has been an early adopter of successful Open Source Enterprise Java technologies such as Hibernate and the Spring Framework. As Co-Founder of JTeam and SpringSource he has made his mark on the national and internal Enterprise Open Source Java industry. Since 2009 Joost has been at eBuddy and is currently Chief Architect and VP Operations and thus responsible for the overall architecture and operations of the eBuddy platform that serves tens of millions of unique users per month.
