Infrastructure-as-code gives you a competitive edge
Automating server configuration and application deployment has always been the goal of any good Operations team. In the past few years there have been an explosion in the number of tools designed to help in a 'DevOps' environment. Claranet have been at the forefront of this process, and are active in the development of many of these tools.

Using these tools, we can employ configuration management to ease management of multiple machines by providing systems documentation and repeatable configuration; provide a full audit trail of all changes; and ultimately prevent lost organisational knowledge.
Puppet configurations are stored using the industry standard git distributed revision control software, providing a full audit trail of every single change made to your system. We were early contributors to the Puppet project, and have used it since 2007 as well as speaking at a number of Puppet conferences in the UK and the US.
Having repeatable environments ensures your staging environments match production. Tools like Vagrant allow your development team to each have their own, faithful re-creations of the live environment, reducing time wasted troubleshooting problems that they cannot reproduce.
With tools like Jenkins, we can help you build an automated deployment systems, with dependable, repeatable deployments triggered at the click of a button, and rolled back just as easily if there are any problems.
