How does it work ?

Web management interface

Rudder is the only open source automation tool that provides a web management interface, through which a few clicks are enough to deploy configuration rules.

Ready-to-use configurations

No need to develop the code; a library of ready-to-use rules is included in the solution.

Codeless Technique builder

With a graphical creation module for custom configuations directly included in the solution, you are free to create your own rules, still without code!

Maintaining compliance

Rudder does not just execute deployment commands, it verifies and maintains proactively the target state of your IT.

Keeping an eye on compliance

Through a comprehensive dashboard, overall compliance of the machines is available at a glance.


The Rudder agent is developed in C, which makes it highly scalable, and has low resource utilization so you can manage up to 100 000 machines with low impact.
