Puppet is an opensource configuration management tool that allows system administrators to automate their infrastructure using code. Puppet can be used to set a desired state and have the machine converge to that state. It uses a client/server model. The server is called as puppet master and clients called as puppet agent.
Puppet is a widely used configuration management tool. It is also plays a big role in Red Hat Satellite technologies. It is also supports cross-platform so we can implement it on all platform operating systems.
