What is automated provisioning?

If it takes you weeks, or even days, to provision new systems, you're holding up applications your business needs. It doesn't have to be that way. Accelerate provisioning and get to Day Two faster by automating your deployments. Puppet Enterprise automates Day One provisioning of infrastructure, so you can get business services up and running faster. Plus, Puppet keeps your systems running dependably with far less work (and far fewer errors) than traditional approaches to systems management.

Automated Provisioning

Cut provisioning time to minutes

Puppet Enterprise automatically discovers infrastructure and provisions machines based on the policies you define. Take the time you used to spend building images and running manual scripts, and use it to make improvements and deliver new technologies that will help your organization thrive.

Accelerate bare metal and VM provisioning

Whether you're provisioning bare metal or virtual machines, all you have to do is describe the desired state for each machine and its operating system. Puppet Enterprise does the rest, automatically installing the correct OS or hypervisors, based on the information Puppet has discovered in your environment.
