Beginning with the simplest cases, you will quickly get up and running by looking at an example Puppet manifest. Moving on, you will learn how to use Puppet to track changes to environments and how this can be used for compliance. As your knowledge increases, you will then get to explore community modules and learn how they can help simplify the deployment of your Puppet environment by using pre-written code contributed by community members. By the end of this book, you will be able to implement a complete centralized logging solution using Logstash and community modules.
