Cloud orchestration challenges
The agility afforded by cloud infrastructure makes automated orchestration ever more critical. Cloud vendors each have their own solution to provisioning VMs and services, but leave the management of the VM configurations to brittle scripts that are impossible to maintain, or worse – manually baked golden images.
Cloud orchestration with Puppet
Puppet Enterprise provides effortless integrations with existing cloud vendor orchestration solutions to take over the management of a VM's configuration – from kernel to application. Using Puppet’s declarative model-driven language, provisioning scripts and image sprawl are eliminated. Once a newly provisioned VM is fully configured by Puppet, Puppet enforces the configurations until the VM is destroyed, ensuring unsafe configuration drift never occurs.
