Getting Started

What is Otter?

Otter helps you provision and configure your servers automatically, without ever needing to log-in to a command prompt. You can define reusable sets of configurations called roles, and then scale your infrastructure by simply assigning these roles to any number of servers.

Otter continuously monitors your servers for configuration changes, and reports when there's configuration drift. You can set servers to automatically remediate drift, or schedule remediation and other configuration changes as needed.

You can manage everything from Otter's web-based dashboard, and selectively share your servers' configuration, state, and change history with other teams, without giving them control, or even requiring them to learn OtterScript.
