Continuous delivery = competitive advantage

Everyone who makes software wants to ship new features and updates to customers more frequently and more reliably. Continuous delivery not only lets you build, test and release code more quickly — it reduces costs and risk because you're shipping smaller, more reliable batches.

A simple and repeatable deployment process is critical, and to do it right, you need automation. Puppet has what you need to simplify continuous delivery. You get an automatic, prescriptive way to build and deploy applications, and automate the provisioning and configuration of the infrastructure they run on.

Continuous delivery = competitive advantage

Deliver software with fewer bugs and lower risk

The process of continuous delivery drastically improves attention to quality. With smaller, more frequent releases, your teams are more likely catch bugs earlier in the development process when they’re easier to fix. That means they’re less likely to delay release dates or ever reach a customer or end user.

Continuously learn and adjust

Just like it’s better to find a bug earlier in the development process, it’s better to learn what your customers think of a new feature or product sooner rather than later. When you practice continuous delivery and deploy small updates more often, you’re giving yourself more time to learn what your customers are and aren’t excited about, and what is and isn’t working — and to adjust what you work on next.

Get end-to-end continuous delivery with Puppet Pipelines

If you deploy to traditional applications, containers or both, Puppet Pipelines gives you everything you need or integrates with tools you already use, like Jenkins. Its flexibility means you can deploy better software faster with far fewer manual steps, and streamline dev, test and production roll-outs.

Achieve rolling updates

Want to update your software quickly and easily, so customers won't notice? Rolling out smaller, less complex changes will help you do that. Puppet Pipelines extends the proven benefits of continuous integration, deploying resulting CI artifacts to a production-like environment. Changes are deployable at any time, based on business need, not IT limitations.

Continuous delivery for your infrastructure

If you’re looking to more rapidly adopt DevOps practices, Puppet Enterprise is the solution for continuous delivery because it treats infrastructure as code, enabling you to build consistent IT infrastructure for all your continuous delivery practices, and making it easy for all your Dev, Ops, QA and other teams to collaborate.

Puppet Enterprise also can take advantage of our new Continuous Delivery for Puppet Enterprise, a seamless way to integrate, test and deploy your Puppet Code. It simplifies code management, meaning you can deploy your infrastructure configurations with more confidence.

Jez Miller, the infrastructure architect at Heartland Payment Systems, talks about how Puppet Enterprise's treatment of infrastructure as code turned deployment duration from about 10 hours to 10 minutes.

Cut deployment times — and errors

No more costly, avoidable human errors. Puppet Enterprise lets you manage your infrastructure as code, enabling you to use the same tools software developers use. You can code, test, integrate, review and repeat infrastructure configurations just like any other code, giving you faster and more dependable deployments.

We had to shore up development to do continuous integration and continuous deployment, and we had to shore up on the ops side of the house. That’s where Puppet came into play.

Increase the quality of releases

Know that changes can be shipped to your customers with a push of a button. Puppet Enterprise provides Beaker, an acceptance testing framework for infrastructure deployments, giving you confidence that deployments will go as expected every time.
