Whether as the IT team for your organization or as an external contractor - whenever you do IT infrastructure management of some sorts proper documentation is crucial. Paperwork is tedious and often neglected - we've reached the age of APIs and almost all of our daily tools we use to provide IT infrastructure or manage it has some sort of API. The IDB - infrastructure database - is our approach to keep infrastructure manageable. The IDB consists of a core application that is fed by various adapters that crawl information ressources. While the IDB and it's adapters already support a large variety of scenarios, it originated in an environment that consists primarily of Ubuntu servers managed by Puppet.
