Whereas Puppet excels at being a big-picture large-scale configuration management tool to maintain a pre-defined state over time, users of Ansible have long since enjoyed support for more of a one-off approach for implementation and deployment solutions. Puppet rolled out Bolt in 2017 to better address needs for these users. Puppet Bolt is currently running version 1.15 as of April 2019.
SIMP Console Beta 0.20.0 Available
We are proud to announce the availability of SIMP Console 0.20.0. This version of the SIMP Console marks the first release containing report generation capabilities. This initial subsystem only supports scap_result reporting in HTML, PDF, and XLSX, but has the capability to be extended to other reporting formats in subsequent releases, and even is part of our plugin API so customers can write their own report generators.
