Overall Satisfaction with Puppet Enterprise

We are using Puppet Data Center Automation to establish the communication between our master server (database) and the other computers that are being used by the employees in order for them to have access to the most up-to-date files in our server. With the software we ensure that the database is running properly and easy to access.
  • It's compatible with all the operating systems that the employees use at our organization.
  • Easy to install and initial setup is easy.
  • It provides good tools for testing if everything is running properly and in order.
  • If you want to do advanced tasks with it, you need to be familiar with Ruby, which not everyone has knowledge about it.
  • It doesn't have its own dashboard.
  • The support for the tool is not very high due to being an open source software.
  • Better configuration management.
  • Faster task completion.
Although we run it in a small server infrastructure, while using it we can estimate that it's use would be more suited for a larger scale of server infrastructure.

Evaluating Puppet Enterprise and Competitors

Puppet was the first software for data center automation that we incorporated in our infrastructure and we were pleased enough to keep going with it.
