module's quality. Each module is
given a score based on how well
the author has formatted their
code and documentation and
modules are also checked for
malware using VirusTotal.

Enterprise Modules has a long history of providing puppet modules to products used in large enterprises. This module allows you to use puppet to manage Oracle ZFS appliances.

Enterprise Modules is committed to helping our customers enjoy all the benefits of Puppet and Puppet Enterprise for all components in the IT infrastructure of large enterprises. Also the non open-source components. This module is a strong addition to our set of modules and shows our first steps moving out of the domain of Oracle products.


This is a commercially licensed module. But you can use the module on VirtualBox based development systems for FREE. When used on real systems a license is required.

You can license our modules in multiple ways. Our basic licensing model requires a subscription per node. But contact us for details.

Check the License for details.
