Manage your IBM infrastructure and applications

IBM and Puppet have partnered to bring cloud management best practices to IBM infrastructure and applications.

IBM z Systems and LinuxOne

Many of the largest enterprise companies in the world rely on IBM z Systems and LinuxONE to run mission-critical applications. To help joint customers adopt cloud management best practices, IBM and Puppet have partnered on a Puppet agent to configure and manage Linux environments on IBM z Systems and LinuxONE. Puppet provides a common language for managing heterogeneous environments and the applications running on top of them. A fully supported agent with packages for SLES 11 and 12 and RHEL 6 and 7 is available.


IBM AIX is a critical part of many IT infrastructures, particularly in highly regulated industries like finance and retail. Puppet is widely adopted in those industries because of its ability to continually enforce security and compliance policies. Puppet Enterprise provides support for AIX 5.3, 6.1 and 7.1, in addition to Linux, Unix, Windows and MacOS platforms, making it the most comprehensive solution for managing heterogeneous environments.

IBM WebSphere

With large deployments of IBM WebSphere, it is critical to make the installation process and configuration as quick and easy as possible. Puppet simplifies the management of WebSphere with a module that provides a repeatable and consistent process for deploying WebSphere instances including:

  • Deployment managers (DMGR)
  • Application servers
  • IBM HTTP Servers (IHS) for WebSphere Application Server

A new release of the WebSphere supported module is available.
