Through orcharhino, our environment has been enhanced in many ways. Both in the deployment and patch management as well as in the area of reporting, orcharhino supported us with its clearly organized and concise structure. orcharhino enables us to deploy and manage systems for a variety of distributions. The continuous comparison of system statuses also enables the early detection of open security gaps and the targeted installation of fixes and updates.

“We use the orcharhino virtually in its entirety: We use it to automate the lifecycle in Foreman, i.e. the complete deployment directly on VMware, the system registers with the puppet master and draws its definition, configures itself automatically and we receive the fully preconfigured system practically on demand. Currently, we use orcharhino for the complete lifecycle, from server configuration to patch management and deprovisioning of hosts.

“The repository management has significantly improved through the use of orcharhino. When rolling out a major release, we used to take a script controlled approach. In other words, we had to replace the entire repos here. In doing so, we always had systems that fell out of line. Now we can control the whole thing much better by activating keys and assigning different repositories.
