The PeopleSoft Deployment Packages (DPKs) are a new method for installing and deploying PeopleSoft servers. DPKs are built on Puppet, open source server automation software, that lets you quickly build servers. The DPK is used by PeopleSoft Images, but you can use the DPK to deploy and configure your own servers. This FREE course will introduce you to the DPK, show you how to use the DPK with PeopleSoft Images, and show you how to customize the DPK for your servers.
