The architecture of Puppet Enterprise and Puppet Open-Source is the same. They are built from the same codebase. However, Puppet Enterprise has a few additional features that make running Puppet in an Enterprise environment easier.

  • A completely self-contained installer (well, kinda. It will install mysql from the OS repository for dashboard support).
  • mCollective support out of the box.
  • Automatic configuration of the Dashboard + integration with mCollective (called live management).
  • Puppetlabs support.
  • Some modules are pre-installed (stdlib and concat for example)

You can run the same modules on Open Source and Enterprise (I often run my unit tests on open source, and then deploy to our Enterprise release).
