Puppet, the industry standard for infrastructure automation has announced updates to Puppet Enterprise that will make it easier and faster to automate complex infrastructure operations as per the company. It also said that this will provide improved application deployments, fewer errors and disruptions, and greater operational repeatability and efficiency.
Puppet said that with this release, customers will be able to use the thousands of open source and Puppet-built modules available on Puppet Forge as building blocks to quickly compose and manage plans through the Puppet Enterprise console. It added that Platform, DevOps and other teams will be able to expand automation into more far-reaching infrastructure use cases. It can be done by mixing and matching imperative tasks with declarative model-based automation with enterprise-grade visibility and control.
Pre-built patching task automation content for Windows and Linux systems
Abby Kearns, Puppet CTO said, “Application deployments are increasingly waiting on DevOps and platform teams to carry out complex sequences of infrastructure configuration, which, when done manually, also increases the risk of errors and disruption. These teams start off making fast progress with basic automation tools, but hit a roadblock once requirements become more complex. Puppet now provides a growth path from the fast start of Puppet Bolt and Puppet Forge content to powerful orchestration workflows to deliver on our promise of continuous automation.”
This release comes with pre-built patching task automation content for Windows and Linux systems together with new user experience. This can be used to share patching automation within the needs and standards of the enterprise. It also comes with a new OS Patching service to help customers standardize and scale their patching processes.
Puppet Enterprise will also include an upgrade pre-check module. It will perform a readiness assessment and identify potential risks, and what changes are needed before running an upgrade
