If you're running Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) or other Red Hat infrastructure, you likely rely on Red Hat Satellite to deploy, scale, and manage that infrastructure across physical, virtual, and cloud environments.
Because so many Red Hat customers manage their RHEL infrastructure with Puppet, Red Hat incorporated open source Puppet in Satellite 6 for managing configuration of RHEL systems.
Powerful as open source Puppet is, you can do a lot more on RHEL (and your other platforms) with Puppet Enterprise. You get partner integrations; professional Puppet support for all your platforms; a selection of supported Puppet modules, including some exclusive to Puppet Enterprise customers; and unique Puppet Apps to help you manage complex infrastructure touched by multiple teams.
Red Hat and Puppet have collaborated on a complete, fully supported integration between Puppet Enterprise and Satellite so you can manage your entire IT infrastructure lifecycle — not just the Red Hat piece of it.
Deploying Puppet Enterprise
Red Hat-supported Kickstart scripts automatically deploy and configure the Puppet Enterprise agent on newly provisioned RHEL systems. The rules-based node classifier automatically assigns the correct role to each node, bringing it into the right configuration for that role.
Support Windows, AIX, devices and more
Puppet Enterprise delivers configuration management and operating system provisioning support for RHEL and many other operating systems, including Windows, Solaris, AIX, and other Linux platforms. Puppet Enterprise includes support for network devices in your data center through our partner network.
