Whereas Puppet excels at being a big-picture large-scale configuration management tool to maintain a pre-defined state over time, users of Ansible have long since enjoyed support for more of a one-off approach for implementation and deployment solutions. Puppet rolled out Bolt in 2017 to better address needs for these users. Puppet Bolt is currently running version 1.15 as of April 2019.

In the last blog, I went over the hardware basics of my Raspberry Pi cluster. I ended up using Ansible to do the configuration of my nodes over Puppet, because I didn’t want to install the Puppet agent. There are other tools, like rak8s, that use Ansible to prepare hardware nodes for Kubernetes. That wasn’t the point of my time on this project, so I did it by myself.

Kubernetes is what everyone is talking about these days, and what’s the cheapest way to get a physical Kubernetes cluster sitting on your desk? A cluster made of Raspberry Pis! After a total cost of around $350 and too many hours to count, I have a reasonably stable and tiny learning platform.

SIMP (System Integrity Management Platform), powered by Puppet, is designed to establish and operate consistent state infrastructures.  Too often, I hear organizations debate over whether to use Puppet or Ansible.  This debate may be fueled by a team’s desires to reduce cost, the comfort and knowledge of staff, and a move to consolidate tooling in a given stack. My position is, why not both?
