When an application runs on a network where you have limited administration privileges, installation upgrades and configuration management may be difficult.

A pull-based strategy using a small wrapper application can be used to allow remote installation, upgrade and configuration management for your application. Pull-based avoids most firewall issues because the only requirement is outgoing HTTPS.

Often used in combination with the Agent pattern.

Implementation alternatives

  1. JAU & ConfigService
  2. AWS GreenGrass ?
  3. Puppet agent ?

Compare alternatives?

Looks like Puppet agent now supports at least some of the same features.
Puppet Agent 1.2.0 was released June 24, 2015. Unknown when 1.0 was released.
TODO: Figure out when Puppet Agent with Windows support was released in a stable version.

Puppet agent 1.0 was released 2015-04-14. https://github.com/puppetlabs/puppetlabs-powershell/releases?after=2.0.0 http://downloads.puppetlabs.com/windows/

JAU and ConfigService was built July 2015.

TODO: It might make sense to compare puppet agent to JAU/ConfigService.

Puppet Agent will install ruby+gem.
Looks like old Windows versions are not supported.
