          I'm using puppet to configure my servers. This makes it really simple to ensure that I have the same environment. There is a bit of a learning curve, but the repeatability definitely makes it worth the effort. I found puppet to be a little easier to pick up relative to chef, but I've used both. They're both great solutions.

          I really like that there are a lot of modules available on the puppet forge that are being actively maintained.

          We provision all servers with puppet. We have one central Puppet server which uses puppet modules referenced by a Puppetfile. Those puppet modules are partly from forge and partly self written.

          All modules which are self written, have to be tested using rspec-puppet and beaker.

          Before Docker, I used Capistrano to deploy all web projects.
