IT Central Station is now PeerSpot: Here's why

Puppet Enterprise Valuable Features

BurhanShakil - PeerSpot reviewer
Systems Engineer at Harvard University

Puppet has a big code repository hosted at puppet forge. Most of common tools and applications can be managed out of the box or by downloading the respective module from PuppetForge.

There are a couple of factory features included that I like. Anything that we manage through Puppet always runs perfectly. The ability to have infrastructure as a code is nice. Every two or three years we upgrade to the most recent version of Linux and build new machines. Afterward, it's just a matter of assigning roles; then we can forget about it and let it do its thing.

I like the way it keeps the configuration management profile simple. The programming in it is based on the stage-based coding in BYML, which is very comfortable for us to use. 

The organization of the overall product in terms of usage is very good. 

The number of modules available and the compatibility with a large number of devices makes it simple to use. It was very helpful in managing the server infrastructure on both Linux and Windows platforms, as well as on the network side on the Cisco switches. 

The versatility is great.
