Modern practices for modern infrastructure

Are you spending more time fighting fires than deploying new, innovative services and applications? You are not alone. On top of that, most IT teams say it takes weeks, even months, to deploy critical applications. There’s got to be a better way to manage infrastructure. With automation, you eliminate manual work, minimize risk of human error, and make it possible to deploy fast without giving up reliability.

Think beyond manual processes and custom scripts

Configuration management with Puppet

Hear Puppet customers talk about the difference that automated configuration management has made in their organizations — and in their own lives.

A model-driven approach to configuration management

Unlike error-prone procedural scripts, which require you to define every step for configuring systems, Puppet Enterprise lets you simply define the desired state of your infrastructure and applications. Puppet continuously and automatically enforces that state, so you can spend more time innovating and less time fighting fires.
A model-driven approach to configuration management
Everyone wants to have stability while still being fast; that’s one of the main objectives we have for configuration management. Puppet helps us to get to that point, so we can quickly build and configure systems that are standardized — and when you become standardized, you become more stable.
Tom Sabin, IT manager for cloud & automation, Staples

Manage your infrastructure as code

Puppet Enterprise makes it possible to define your infrastructure as code, a foundation for successful DevOps practices. When infrastructure is managed as code, multiple teams can collaborate, and you bring proven agile software development practices to IT: versioning, peer review, automated testing and continuous delivery.
