Overall Satisfaction with Puppet Data Center Automation

Puppet is a great tool. Puppet used in conjunction with other open sourced tools makes VM automation work like magic.
It is currently in development, but will hopefully make it out to be used throughout the organization.

There are few business problems, mainly with the limitation in support for open sourced software, which would be solved by using the closed sourced counterpart, but that would defeat the purpose of open source...

If people helping people is a powerful thing... then Puppet helping Puppet is also a very powerful thing.
  • Plays well with other open sourced software
  • A generally accepted open sourced tool for automation
  • Easy to understand
  • It is most importantly free
  • Support... support.... support
  • Does not always work well with other software
  • Nothing beats free
I was put on a team that initially adopted Puppet. However from what I see, it fits and makes sense.
Currently Puppet can be suited to be used in any application that is redundant.
The coding is easy to understand and can be as complex as you make it.
