Automate IBM z Systems & LinuxONE environments with Puppet Enterprise
CRITICAL UPDATE: As of February 2019 Puppet has stopped supporting our zSystems/LinuxONE Puppet agents.
Many of the largest companies in the world run their mission-critical applications on IBM z Systems and LinuxONE. As we announced in June, we’ve partnered with IBM to introduce a new agent to manage your z Systems mainframe and LinuxONE environments with Puppet Enterprise.
IBM z Systems and LinuxONE deliver a cost-efficient IT infrastructure that provides the highest levels of security, reliability, and performance. Combined with Puppet, you get a fully automated, scalable, and secure platform to run your most important applications.
If you’re already using z Systems and LinuxONE, Puppet gives you a common language and consistent approach to manage all of your infrastructure, from mainframes to containers. The Puppet agent for LinuxONE includes packages for SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 and 12 and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 and 7.
You can grab the Puppet Enterprise agent for IBM z Systems and LinuxONE and get started managing up to ten nodes for free.
