Continuous Configuration Automation

Continuously automate and enforce the state of infrastructure at scale across on-prem, hybrid and cloud
A lack of standard requirements coupled with inefficient processes -- from building and maintaining golden images to manually running commands and scripts to configure machines -- leads to image sprawl and a lack of control over critical infrastructure. Companies need a reliable way to automate the deployment and configuration of their infrastructure while scaling for future growth in order to meet the demands of business agility.

Define and enforce configurations across operating systems, middleware and applications in a programmatic way

  • Define, test, and deploy changes with infrastructure as code using task-oriented or model-driven workflows
  • Assess configurations, lay down baselines, and automate standards for continuous enforcement of desired state
  • Manage the state of your infrastructure with a dashboard view of inventory across the organization and track exceptions in a repeatable way

Control drift and increase predictability with resilient infrastructure

  • Manage changes at scale with control and auditability; track and report on corrective and intentional changes from a centralized interface
  • Reduce operational risk with a consistent and predictable environment that meets security and compliance requirements
  • Manage drift between the desired and actual configuration state with agent-based drift alerting
  • Safely scale automation across teams with greater insight into proposed code changes while avoiding conflict and collisions

Reduce risk and maintain compliance with consistent and standardized processes

  • Stay compliant with automated patching workflows and eliminate multiple tools, and manual, error prone processes
  • Build security, compliance , and operational policies right into your infrastructure code with policy-as-code
  • Enforce your system’s desired state, automatically assess compliance with specific guidelines such as CIS and NIS

Automate more with ready-to-use modules from the Puppet Forge

  • Supercharge and simplify automation processes with step-by-step guides and tutorials
  • Take advantage of over 6,000 modules built by Puppet experts and the Puppet community
Everyone wants to have stability while still being fast; that’s one of the main objectives we have for configuration management. Puppet helps us to get to that point, so we can quickly build and configure systems that are standardized — and when you become standardized, you become more stable.
