Open Source Lifecycle Management


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.
