Open Source Lifecycle Management
Foreman ist the lifecycle management tool for physical and virtual servers. The Foreman is an open source project that helps administrators manage their systems throughout the lifecycle, from provisioning and configuration to orchestration and monitoring.
Using Puppet, Ansible or Chef and the Foreman Smart Proxy architecture, regular tasks can be automated and applications rolled out at the touch of a button.
Foreman offers a web frontend, a CLI and a RESTful API. In addition, a large number of plugins are available to customize Foreman to individual needs.
Foreman is the perfect frontend for the open source variants of Puppet and Ansible. Be it controlling your own server virtualization or analyzing the configuration management.
Adapts to your needs
With Foreman, applications can be deployed quickly and changes proactively managed. Both on-premise with VMs and bare-metal systems as well as in the cloud. Foreman scales well across multiple locations (offices, data centers, etc.) and multiple organizations.
Provide complete systems from the ground up – controlled by an interface for both bare metal systems and private and public cloud systems.
A complete solution for configuration management – as a Puppet ENC with built-in parameterizable class support and a hierarchical parameter store.
Inventory and Activity Monitoring of Puppet, Ansible and Chef Reports and Facts – including all configuration states and trends.
