 Puppet is an open source configuration management tool.  System
 administrators have long written custom scripts and tools to help automate
 common tasks such as configuration management and system updates.  But as
 networks scale and reach outside the corporate firewall, custom tools
 become yet another management headache. 

 The benefits of automated infrastructure go beyond policy-enforced
 consistency and auditing.  In conjunction with virtualizaton, the ability
 to reliably create new systems running consistent services creates
 auto-scaling applications as well as test systems identical to production

 Puppet abstracts the system from the system administration, providing
 developers and system administrators with a simple service-based policy
 framework that allows for more consistent, transparent and flexible
 systems.  It is written in Ruby and released under the GPL until version
 2.7.0 and the Apache 2.0 license after that.
