These updates provide powerful orchestration capabilities to run multi-layer actions with shared content, prescriptive patch management workflows to eliminate manual patching of Windows, Linux and other popular operating systems and greater flexibility to manage and automate infrastructure in a way that meets customer preference.
Join Puppet Engineers as they talk about what’s new and how to prepare for the upgrade.
Learn about the evolution and innovation of PE from PE 2015 to 2019.8 and find out what’s new in PE 2019.8: New features such as node patch management and reporting, agent installation, agentless plans, and installation of CD4PE – all direct from the console – plus, many more features. Learn how Puppet can help to establish a clear upgrade path and how to use a Bolt plan to estimate the level of effort to upgrade based on your current environment.
Deciding whether to upgrade or update is influenced by many factors. Updates include fixes and improvements; upgrades change the version. Updating might have a lower cost, but upgrading ensures you get the latest features, security fixes, and continued support. We’ll guide you to make the best choice for your organization as well as show you how to upgrade PE version 2018.1 to version 2019.8.
In this virtual hands-on workshop, you’ll delve into the upgrade process including planning and coordinating the upgrade, backing up your Puppet data, completing the upgrade, and rolling back. You’ll leave the workshop having completed an upgrade from PE version 2018.1 to version 2019.8. This is a highly interactive workshop; registration is limited to 15.
