Overall Satisfaction with Puppet Data Center Automation

We use Puppet Data Center Automation as a configuration management tool in our organization. It allows us to maintain a constant baseline as well as make easy updates across many servers.
  • Maintain a solid baseline across many servers.
  • Apply updates to many servers.
  • Easy to make changes all in one place rather than on 50 servers.
  • No GUI for non sys-admin users.
  • Ruby syntax is troubling at times.
  • No automated deployment.
  • Better configuration management.
  • Faster deployment.
  • Ease of management.
We evaluated Chef and Ansible. Puppet Data Center Automation was cleaner and we were more familiar with the product.
Puppet Data Center Automation is more suited for many servers. It is less appropriate for a one server architecture.
