Puppet on storage devices

Puppet management of storage devices is still at the early stages, there are not many implementations around but something is moving.

For example, there is Gavin Williams' module to manage NetApp filers: https://forge.puppetlabs.com/puppetlabs/netapp.

In addition, this module is based on puppet device, the configuration being something like this:

[netapp.example42.lan]
  type netapp
  url https://root:password@netapp.example42.lan

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 easy creation and export of a volume.
