Modern approach to managing infrastructure

Many IT teams still rely on manual configurations, custom scripts, golden images or outdated tools to manage infrastructure, resulting in errors and slow deployments. Organizations looking for faster deployments treat infrastructure like software: as code that can be managed with the same tools and processes software developers use, such as version control, continuous integration, code review and automated testing. These let you make infrastructure changes more easily, rapidly, safely and reliably.

Describing your infrastructure as code with Puppet Enterprise lets you deliver software much more reliably, too. That's because configurations are consistently tested, shared and promoted across all your environments, from dev laptops through test to production.

Infrastructure as code with Puppet

Evan Scheessele, master engineer of cloud platforms and API strategy at HP, talks about how treating infrastructure as code helped HP speed up application delivery from weeks to an hour.

Simply define infrastructure

Puppet Enterprise lets you define the desired state of your infrastructure and what you want it to do. Puppet then automatically enforces that desired state and remediates any unexpected changes. You can deploy faster, with greater reliability, because you no longer have to map out and manually deploy every step.

Configuration management is really just code for automation. You hand cycles back to engineers who were doing a lot of manual work, and now those cycles are invested into the future.

A foundation for DevOps

Infrastructure as code is the prerequisite for common DevOps practices such as version control, code review, continuous integration and automated testing. These practices get you to continuous delivery of quality software that pleases your customers.

Gain visibility across your infrastructure

Puppet Enterprise gives you a clear audit trail with detailed reports on the state of your infrastructure. Now you (and your management team) can easily see who changed what, and when, plus how out-of-policy changes are automatically remediated back to the desired state.
