Where config mgmt. tools fail for deploy • Good for config management of infrastructure but fail for custom deploy scenarios • Chef, Puppet etc fail to trigger an immediate change in infrastructure • Cannot have chef-client and puppet apply deamonized in all environments, example prod and critical environments. • Many environments require rolling deploys. • Fail to do ad-hoc deploys on multiple nodes
  5. 5. Rundeck integrates with CM tool • Rundeck can be loosely coupled with Chef, etc to trigger chef- client runs on parallel nodes • Allows rolling deploy of chef-client so you don’t bring down prod or stage environment • Rundeck + chef/puppet/Ansible
