Puppet on storage devices

Puppet management on storage devices is still in the early stages; there are not many implementations around, but something is moving, for example, Gavin Williams' module to manage NetApp filers available at

In addition, this module is based on puppet device; the configuration is something like the following lines of code:

  type netapp
  url https://root:[email protected]

The module provides native types to manage volumes (netapp_volume), NFS shares (netapp_export), users (netapp_user), snap mirrors (netapp_snapmirror), and other configuration items. It also provides a defined resource (netapp::vqe) for the easy creation and exportation of a volume.
