You’ve eagerly collaborated with us through IRC, email and forums about how we could make Puppet Enterprise even better. We listened.
Below are the latest Puppet Enterprise features and enhancements to help you extend IT automation even further into your infrastructure. Learn more below, or download now and manage up to 10 nodes free.
What’s New in Puppet Enterprise?
New Support for IBM AIX
With the addition of IBM AIX, in Puppet Enterprise 2.8, we now offer the most comprehensive coverage of enterprise IT platforms, boosting system administrators’ productivity by enabling them to automate the management of heterogeneous IT environments with a single solution. Learn more.
Node Request Management
This new capability enables system administrators to view and respond to requests graphically, from within the Puppet Enterprise console. Nodes can now be approved or rejected without requiring access to the puppet master. For further security, only users with read/write privileges can take action on node requests. Learn more.
Third-Party Authentication Support
The Puppet Enterprise console now supports the use of third-party authentication services such as LDAP, Active Directory or Google Apps Directory. Now, users of Puppet Enterprise can be managed and authenticated leveraging your existing infrastructure. Learn more.
With the addition of Microsoft Windows, Puppet Enterprise delivers IT automation for the widest range of enterprise operating systems. And those configuration modules you wrote for Linux? They’ll work on Windows. How’s that for a power-up?

Role-Based Access Control
We’ve all been there – your boss wants to “just take a look around” your environment. Right. Keep control and your job. Grant read-only rights with Puppet Enterprise’s role-based access control (RBAC). Note: We’ve recently expanded this feature to include third-party authentication support.
Big Data for Infrastructure
Does your infrastructure still seem like a black box, despite all of your monitoring solutions? The Puppet Data Library (PDL) gives you detailed data about each server’s hardware and software inventories, configuration changes and resource dependencies. Open the black box into your infrastructure.
