Why Puppet software?

Automation is a prerequisite in modern IT, and Puppet allows you to manage infrastructure as code, improving safety, consistency, and productivity. As an Open Source software configuration tool, Puppet automates the administration of your data center. This platform-independent tool runs on Linux, Unix, Unix-like, and Microsoft Windows systems.

Infrastructure management automation

With Puppet software, users automate infrastructures in a complete, reliable, and controlled way. Through Puppet, you are able to manage server configuration, network setups, container infrastructure, and cloud provisioning.

Systems auditing and security

Puppet keeps systems continuously managed; it enforces security hardening, audits configuration drifts, and ensures that the infrastructure remains compliant and under control.

Declarative and imperative

Puppet and Bolt , which can be tightly integrated, provide the best of configuration management worlds — continuous management of the infrastructure, remote task execution, and orchestration.

Infrastructure awareness

Puppet ecosystem goes beyond configuration. It provides tools and features that allow full visibility of the infrastructure and the ongoing changes, giving you full control when introducing changes.
