Case Study: Citrix Systems Eliminates Configuration Drift with Puppet
Citrix Systems offers a wide array of virtualization, networking, and SaaS solutions to users in any location and on any device. This large enterprise software company runs an IT infrastructure that is constantly under migration, with many systems in different stages of development. Citrix needed a way to keep a closer eye on their machines—to ensure they were properly configured, exert fine-grained control over system configurations, and accurately track and report the status of any given system at any given time. Puppet Labs consulting was able to offer a solution with large-scale configuration management and by eliminating configuration drift for the company. Joe Allen, the Web Matrix Manager at Citrix Online emphasized the unseen benefits gained from working with Puppet:
"Puppet has been a success on so many levels for us, from configuration enforcement to using it for mass change. Because we deliver a service to internal customers, the biggest surprise is how much Puppet has helped them, rather than just our own internal group. By improving the efficiency of our IT infrastructure, Puppet allows us to deliver our service faster, and with higher quality."We always enjoy hearing about Puppet in the world, so feel free to tell us your story.
