It has reduced the time of production changes or environment changes.

What is our primary use case?

I think deploying computer direction changes over production environments. The main purpose for this automation tool would be: * Deploying * Controlling * Ordering Change for the System * IT Infrastructure

Pros and Cons

  • "The main purpose for this automation tool would be: deploying, controlling, ordering change for the system and IT Infrastructure."
  • "Puppet Enterprise has reduced the time of production changes or environment changes."
  • "At the beginning the initial setup was kind of complex."

What other advice do I have?

I was trying to manage some drops raspberry pi from a Puppet master server. I wasn't able to reach that goal because there is no urgency for raspberry pi. I think I can block it, because you can use raspberry pi to manage many automation things. Many things from an IOT. I found that a couple of years ago, and I stopped playing with that. When you're using the console, it is user friendly.

Versatile and stable with a simple configuration management profile

What is our primary use case?

Our use case is provisioning and then configuration management for on-prem servers primarily. We use it for applications as well. We were using Puppet for database configuration management. Basically, we mainly use it for configuration management for on-prem servers of infrastructure and then use it a bit on the application side as well.

Pros and Cons

  • "The versatility is great."
  • "There's a lot of scope for enhancement on the DevSecOps side. They should definitely include features for compliance, for both the Linux and Windows side of the devices, as well as for network devices. Compliance is something they need to work on."

What other advice do I have?

We're just customers. We don't have a business relationship with Puppet. I would recommend it to others who have large-scale environments. It's a very good product for that type of organization. For example, if you have 5,000 or 3,000 plus servers, it's definitely a go-to. Overall, on a scale from one to ten, I'd rate the solution at an eight.
