Over the last six months CERN IT department has started its “Agile Infrastructure” project. The aim is to completely rethink the CERN computer center life cycle including hardware provision, software configuration and service delivery. A major new component for CERN will be a large scale deployment of puppet and associated technologies. We must eventually manage up to 300k instances in two geographically distinct data centers by 2014.


Steve Traylen has worked as a unix system administrator for 15 years within scientific disciplines. Now within CERN IT department he concentrates on the large scale deployment of computing services for the Large Hadron Collider as part of the World Wide LHC Computing grid.
