Objective

Learn the benefits and advantages of using puppet in stand alone mode. Discuss the pros and cons of it.

Description

Puppet in a generic server/client model works well but the problem comes when you are managing either a multitude of systems or just a single system. Use of racks such as passenger/unicorn can benefit but the configuration is not trivial. So let we can here discuss about using puppet in a stand-alone mode and distribute and trigger code with the help of version controlling systems (I use git for it)

Requirements

Basic knowledge of configuration Management and System Administration
