Deep Dive into SaltStack Hands on Training

[ Edited ]


Why SaltStack?

SaltStack is also incredibly simple to install! The master doesn't have any special dependencies on a message queue or a special database in order to do it's job. Installing a minion on a myriad of Linux distros is quite easy, also, using the bootstrap script provided by saltstack.


SaltStack is ubiquitous. It runs everywhere, even servers that don't have SSH installed.


SaltStack has a decent security model. Each minion gets a specific cert pair which allows them to connect as a certain ID. This ID can be used to limit the amount of cluster secrets they can access.


A few years ago, when I left Puppet and Chef, orchestration meant pulling and applying state in cron-fashion periodically. I feel this is one of the worst ideas ever to come to ops tools, and it made their application deployment story a complete joke. While the orchestration story in both of those tools has since improved, it's been nice that orchestration has been a focus of SaltStack from day one.


Summarize on SaltStack:

A few points at a glance on SaltStack:


  1. Chef and Puppet, both have remained market leader for years. Puppet being at the top in terms of penetration. Check this out Community Metrics: Comparing Ansible, Chef, Puppet and Salt.
  2. Chef and Puppet, primarily have the pull based approach i.e. clients continuously poll the master node. SaltStack uses push based approach i.e. to push the config to clients. Ansible, whereas, supports both push and pull.
  3. Scripting for Chef and Puppet not an easy task; considered a programmer's job in many opinions. Whereas, Ansible and SaltStack use yaml configurations.
  4. SaltStack uses highly robust communication library ZeroMQ | Code Connected at its core. This makes it the most efficient framework in most situations.
  5. Ansible uses OpenSSH at its core for communication which makes it well secure.
  6. Ansible on Windows is still beta - to my knowledge.
