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.

Puppet Bolt is a masterless solution for Puppet users. It lets you start with a clean slate and requires no pre-configured agents. Bolt can be utilized on a whim to roll-out patches, move files, deploy plans, and more – most of which requireing no prior experience with Puppet!

Check out this YouTube video to listen to Onyx Point DevOps Engineer and Consultant, Kendall Moore, explain environments well suited for Puppet Bolt and introduce a number of built-in tasks and features.
