open source Puppet

Open source Puppet is a declarative, model-based configuration management solution that lets you define the state of your IT infrastructure, using the Puppet language. Open source Puppet then automatically enforces the correct configuration to ensure the right services are up and running, on the right platforms.

You can run Puppet on all major Linux and Unix platforms, Mac OS X, and Windows. It is available to download and use under the Apache 2.0 license.

Puppet Enterprise

Puppet Enterprise the flagship commercial product from Puppet Labs, is developed, packaged and proven for enterprise-scale IT to help you deliver new applications and features, faster and more reliably. You get all of the benefits of open source Puppet, plus Puppet Apps, commercial-only enhancements, supported modules and integrations, and the confidence that comes with using a fully supported platform.

The Puppet Forge

The Puppet Forge is an important resource for both open source Puppet and Puppet Enterprise users. Here you’ll find 3,000-plus modules — reusable, sharable pre-written Puppet code for automating a large number of common admin tasks.

Puppet Enterprise customers get full support for Puppet Supported modules as part of their license agreement. These modules are fully tested for use with current versions of Puppet Enterprise across multiple platforms. They’re easy to set up, implement and manage with Puppet Enterprise.

The Puppet Community
