My company is interested in a DevOps solution and Puppet is high on our list but cost is a factor. If we could begin with Open Source to prove the concept knowing we could easily upgrade to Enterprise at the next budget cycle it would improve chances for adoption of Puppet.

The version of puppet enterprise is usually several versions behind the open source versions. Uninstalling and reinstalling the server is very easy, the biggest obstacle you may run into is upgrading all the nodes.

One compromise might be to install puppet open source on both the server and the nodes. When you are ready for enterprise, start by upgrading just the server. Nodes running puppet open source can communicate with an enterprise server, but will display a harmless error (You can actually turn off that error).

According to puppet's documentation, it is easy to switch from open source to enterprise.
