Revolutionizing Linux System Engineering in Air Traffic Control with Puppet

In Air Traffic Control environments, reliable mass deployment of Linux based, mission critical applications is central to guarantee the 24/7 service that our customers expects. A lot of effort is invested to build and maintain a large number of very special purpose automatic Linux installations. Reproducibility and high quality without compromise are the main focus.

During 2010 we rethought our system engineering approach: How can we avoid doing work again and again? How can we close the gap between informal requirement documents and low-level system customization? How can we approach our tasks more efficiently with methods and concepts which are well-known in software development for many years? Why are we doing system engineering like programmers did in the eighties? Using Puppet in the story, that started with those questions, was a natural choice.
