Use one of two modes depending on your needs: check configurations only or correct them. Set the modes at the global, machine or configuration level.
Automate global configuration management while easily taking into account all exceptions on each machine.
Create dynamic groups based on inventory and data criterias. Each new machine will be automatically classified.
Quickly monitor the health of your IT environment and share it with other teams.
Centralize all the management of your systems. Agents work for Linux, Windows, AIX, Raspberry Pi, Solaris.
Driven by API, Rudder integrates perfectly with your IT environment and workflows. It's a powerful tool for DevOps teams.
Easily create configurations through a user-friendly interface. No need to learn a new language.
Create your own configuration modules for simplified configuration management. And build complex components that can be easily reused by others.
Define the desired state of your infrastructure through your configurations. No need to think about how to reach it, Rudder does it for you.
Hierarchical data management
Manage exceptions in your systems by associating data with an instance, a node or a group; fine-tune merge and override policies; and view computed values.
Anomaly detection and remediation with self-healing (within 5 minutes).
Go from a minimal OS installation to a fully configured system in minutes. Rudder takes care of customizing the installation to suit your needs.
Achieve continuous deployments for applications, configurations, files, scripts, registered keys… That easily integrates with CI/CD stacks.
Check and ensure your systems and applications have the latest update installed. Apply patches if necessary.
Create new configurations and deploy them step by step over your infrastructure.
Custom security policies
Easily create and customize security policies through a user-friendly interface. You can manage internal security policies of your organizations, standards (ISO 27001, PCI-DSS…) and system hardening.
Managed systems are checked autonomously every 5 minutes by agents.
Continuously detect vulnerabilities in your systems. And get detailed information to properly remediate them.
Audit CIS benchmark with Rudder and check system compliance.
Automatically trigger OpenSCAP audits, then collect and make the results available directly in Rudder interface.
