Puppet Migration Services: Move to Puppet Enterprise with Ease

Community & Open Source

Things change fast in IT, and integrating the latest tech with legacy infrastructure creates major business challenges. How do you manage conflicts and make sure legacy infrastructure can keep up?

Puppet Enterprise can help you manage a diverse infrastructure that contains both new and old tech, and we can help you migrate.

The Perfect Puppet for Your Infrastructure

Open source Puppet is great for people who are managing a small set of servers. When you have a complex or large infrastructure that’s used and managed by different teams, Puppet Enterprise is your best choice.

Puppet Enterprise is more than just a pre-built assembly of Puppet’s core open-source projects. With additional powerful capabilities – orchestration, role-based access control, full portability, reporting, and compliance – you can automate an entire application stack and every element of your data center and cloud infrastructure.

Check out this resource for a more in-depth look at the differences between Puppet Enterprise and the open-source version of Puppet.

Reporting and Compliance

Puppet Enterprise delivers graphical reporting so you can visualize your infrastructure, collaborate better and respond to changes faster. You get real-time visibility into the effects of changes so you can see exactly what’s going on in your infrastructure — plus prove to auditors that everything is in compliance.

Made for Teams Like Yours

Puppet Enterprise is built for distributed teams, providing a standardized way to automate the delivery and operation of your software. You get efficiency and traceability across large fleets of servers, plus the ability to view audit trails. You can safely delegate access across teams and quickly orchestrate change across tens of thousands of machines.

Enterprise Scale

Whether your infrastructure spans hundreds or tens of thousands of nodes, Puppet enterprise scales easily to give you performance monitoring, resiliency, and high availability, so you can roll automation out across your entire enterprise.

Full Stack Automation

Puppet Enterprise gives you a consistent approach to automation across your entire infrastructure lifecycle, from initial provisioning to system configuration, plus application deployment and change orchestration. With Puppet Enterprise, you can automate the entire application stack, from core infrastructure through middleware and application deployment.

Puppet Migration Support, Services, and Training

We can help you deliver business value to your organization faster with support, services, and training when you need it. You’ll have access to:

  • A private support portal with email and phone support
  • Immediate access to all product updates
  • An account manager to help you find what you need
  • Training to give you hands-on experience
  • Help with deploying, developing, and efficiently maintaining your infrastructure

Take the First Step Toward Your Puppet Migration

Many people using open source Puppet are unsure what level of effort is required for a Puppet migration to Puppet Enterprise. We want to make sure you have all the facts to make the decision. That is why we have assessment services to provide guidance on how your open source Puppet implementation is working, explain the benefits of moving to Puppet Enterprise, and provide recommendations around how to proceed, should you decide to migrate.

We also offer migration services to help you migrate your open source Puppet implementation to the latest Puppet Enterprise release, leveraging best-in-class methodology and tooling to simplify the migration process. We can assist you in converting or replacing your existing Puppet code so you'll have a codebase compatible with the Puppet 4 parser; install and configure your new Puppet Enterprise infrastructure; and migrate nodes to run against the new infrastructure. And you’ll receive all the information you need to help move forward with your migration process.
