Concourse vs Puppet Labs: What are the differences?
Developers describe Concourse as "Pipeline-based CI system written in Go". Concourse's principles reduce the risk of switching to and from Concourse, by encouraging practices that decouple your project from your CI's little details, and keeping all configuration in declarative files that can be checked into version control. On the other hand, Puppet Labs is detailed as "Server automation framework and application". Puppet is an automated administrative engine for your Linux, Unix, and Windows systems and performs administrative tasks (such as adding users, installing packages, and updating server configurations) based on a centralized specification.
Concourse can be classified as a tool in the "Continuous Integration" category, while Puppet Labs is grouped under "Server Configuration and Automation".
"Real pipelines" is the primary reason why developers consider Concourse over the competitors, whereas "Devops" was stated as the key factor in picking Puppet Labs.
Concourse and Puppet Labs are both open source tools. It seems that Puppet Labs with 5.37K GitHub stars and 2.1K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Concourse with 3.99K GitHub stars and 482 GitHub forks.
Uber Technologies, Twitch, and PayPal are some of the popular companies that use Puppet Labs, whereas Concourse is used by DigitalOcean, Starbucks, and HelloFresh. Puppet Labs has a broader approval, being mentioned in 180 company stacks & 49 developers stacks; compared to Concourse, which is listed in 18 company stacks and 17 developer stacks.
