Cons
"It's a bit of a pain point to make sure that everything works once we've upgraded it because Puppet has been evolving pretty fast.""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.""The solution has really complex code, you have to understand the Ruby language. However, once you know the code then you can move ahead without any problems."

More Puppet Enterprise Cons →

"The technical support of the solution could definitely be improved as PMRs take long to resolve.""I would like to see more reporting for container architecture.""The scalability of this application needs improvement. Changes and variations in the application become bottlenecks as they need to be more seamless and comfortable."

    Overview

    Puppet Data Center Automation helps sysadmins automate configuration and management of machines and the software running on them. With our software, businesses can make rapid, repeatable changes and automatically enforce the consistency of systems and devices, across physical and virtual machines, on prem or in the cloud.
