Puppet is made up of several packages. Together these are called the Puppet platform, which is what you use to manage, store and run your Puppet code. These packages include puppetserver, puppetdb, and puppet-agent — which includes Facter and Hiera.

To install these packages, see the Installing Puppet page. To understand what versions are maintained and go together when upgrading and troubleshooting, view the Puppet platform lifecycle page.
