Infrastructure orchestration challenges
As rapidly changing business needs demand more and more from IT, the ability to reliably and rapidly adapt the infrastructure to meet the business needs becomes ever more difficult. Identifying how infrastructure services relate to each, where each service lives, and what information they need from each other is something administrators usually keep in their heads.
Infrastructure orchestration with Puppet
Puppet Enterprise’s Orchestrator keeps a model of your entire infrastructure including every infrastructure service, every dependency between services, and what information each service needs to know of the dependent services. Puppet Enterprise uses this information to automatically determine the order of operations, what configuration information to securely pass between systems, and when to wait for a dependent service to be available before moving on to the next step. Since there are no runbooks, a change can be deployed to as wide or as narrow an infrastructure target as required for the moment, knowing Puppet Enterprise will always do the right thing.
