puppet case study 1800 flowers

Top outcomes of using Puppet Enterprise

  • Fast remediation of security vulnerabilities. The team was able to deal with Heartbleed, a high-severity security vulnerability, very quickly across hundreds of machines. Before Puppet Enterprise, it would have required significantly more time to remediate a similar high-severity issue.
  • Much easier compliance with PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) and Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) requirements.
  • Free up system engineers’ time by automating pre-build, post-build and integration of applications, thus accelerating the company’s transition to the cloud.
  • Greater visibility into system variances, plus automated remediation of configuration drift.

Starting environment

  • Automation with scripts built in house
  • Hundreds of servers running Linux, AIX and Solaris
  • Proving PCI and Sarbanes-Oxley compliance required a lot of manual work
