Taken from the Puppet website, “Put simply, Puppet is a system for automating system administration tasks. Puppet lets you perform normal administrative tasks (such as adding users, installing packages, and updating server configurations) on any number of systems, even if those systems are running completely different operating systems. Through the use of providers, Puppet takes a generic instruction from you (such as ensuring MySQL is installed) and performs the task the “right way” for each system.”
