    Cheff and Puppet, what are the for ?

    Hi

    I am reading a book for learning Vagrant.

    The terms "Cheff and Puppet" are spoken many times within the book.

    What are they for?

    Same idea basically - describe your desired server configuration state and let the Puppet/Chef configure it this way.
    It also can be reused and easily managed.

    You can also look for Ansible. They all do the same but differs in details.

    Imagine that you have two servers running the same services. If you need to change something in the configuration of these servers, you take turns to visit each server and change the configuration files, restart the services, and so on.
    You can also do this with a script. And now imagine that you do not have 2 servers, but 100. In order to change the configuration of hundreds of servers and restart the services manually, it takes a very long time, writing for this script will become more and more difficult with time. It was for this purpose that such things as puppet, Chef, Ansible were invented. With their help you can easily manage a huge number of services and servers, the description of configs is usually on yaml or ruby.
