Puppet

The shortest path to better software

Puppet technology helps you know what's in your infrastructure, and how it's configured across all the physical components of your data center; your virtualised and cloud infrastructure; and everything you're running in containers. Puppet automatically keeps everything in its desired state, enforcing consistency and keeping you compliant, while giving you complete control to make changes as your business needs evolve.

With the increasing number of physical and virtual servers available for workloads, comes increasingly complex server management. Servers are grouped per workload and are deployed on local virtualisation infrastructure or in remote datacenters. No matter the size of your infrastructure, automation and orchestration generally make life easier. With these open source automation tools, server configuration can be written once, and servers can be deployed automatically. Which tool you need, depends on your requirements and your current environment.
