Deliver quality software faster

If you are thinking of using containers it’s probably because it can be difficult to deploy business applications across a heterogeneous stack comprised of different operating systems, hardware and virtualization platforms. A container abstracts an application's code base and all its system dependencies into a single image that can then be replicated over and over to run in any environment, minimizing the chance of inconsistency between environments. Eliminating those inconsistencies makes it easier to deliver quality software faster.

Software faster

Managing the configuration explosion

While containers help you move applications from one environment to another, they increase complexity. You need to address problems like managing configuration drift, getting visibility into your containers, creating a single audited change control mechanism and modeling your entire infrastructure. That’s where Puppet Enterprise comes into play, helping you manage the configuration of resources in your container images, services within your container infrastructure, and the complexity of your container infrastructure itself.

Adopt containers faster

The Puppet docker module makes it simple to deploy Docker and Docker containers repeatedly, in a standardized way, and at scale. Because Puppet models applications that span heterogeneous infrastructure, Puppet helps identify where application services in the model can be moved to containers without changing the application model.

Lumogon™

Lumogon is a technology for collecting and reporting on container application metadata. With Lumogon you can inventory and report on the contents of Docker images and running containers so you get a complete picture of what your applications are made of.
