Resiliency

Your Rundeck is a critical service, treat it like one. Whether you are using Rundeck for responding to incidents, provisioning, scheduling batch tasks, or more — your Rundeck has to be there for you. Rundeck Enterprise has the critical capabilities that deliver the resiliency that your business demands.

cluster
Clustering

Rundeck Enterprise's cluster capabilities ensure that your Rundeck service is highly available, easily expandable, and easy to manage.

If a Cluster Member goes down all scheduled jobs on that member are moved to a healthy instance.

This plugin allows Jobs to Resume execution at a failed workflow step.

Job Replication

Within a clustered or active/passive model, the Job replication plugin automatically replicates Job definitions to a secondary Rundeck instance whenever a Job is modified within a project.

Scalability

Rundeck Enterprise readily handles two types of scale: increasing workload and onboarding more users. Rundeck Enterprise provides the capabilities necessary to handle expanding usage, all while keeping your Rundeck infrastructure simple and easy to manage. Rundeck's customer success team is always available to help Rundeck Enterprise customers design their optimum solution.

Clustering

Rundeck Enterprise's cluster capabilities ensure that your Rundeck service is highly available, easily expandable, and easy to manage.

remote
Load balanced workloads

Horizontally scale your Rundeck cluster by designating specific cluster members to handle certain types of traffic (user interface vs job execution) or designating specific cluster members to handle certain types of jobs (e.g., Windows vs Linux or PCI vs non-PCI). For end-users, the perception is they are simply accessing a centralized, highly-performant Rundeck.

Single Sign-on Support

To simplify the onboarding experience, Rundeck Enterprise can be configured to work with the SSO solutions (e.g. Okta or Ping Identity)

Access Control Rules Builder and Evaluator

Rundeck features powerful fine-grained access control capabilities. Rundeck Enterprise includes a GUI-based interface that simplifies the building of access control rules and another GUI-based interface for evaluating and testing those rules. This makes it easy to both create rules and see what effect those rules have on a specific person's or group's access — a must for enterprise usage.

health
Health Checks for Nodes

As your Rundeck usage grows, so will the infrastructure across which Rundeck jobs will execute. That infrastructure is represented as Nodes. Health Checks allow you to check the health status of Nodes periodically and on-demand. Common uses include showing the status of a Node visually in the Rundeck GUI, and using status to filter out unhealthy nodes when running Jobs.

Security

Securing your Rundeck is an essential part of using Rundeck within your company. Rundeck Enterprise has additional security-minded features that are often considered mandatory for enterprise usage. Also, as a Rundeck Enterprise customer, Rundeck's support and services teams will help you review and implement your company's security requirements.

lock
Keys and Passwords Encrypted By Default

Rundeck's key storage facility is very useful for controlling access to secrets like SSH keys or passwords. Using this feature, you can expand the number of people who can execute actions that previously required access to passwords or access to privileged environments. Rundeck's key storage facility is encrypted by default in Rundeck Enterprise

doc-lock-2
Encrypted Project Configuration

Rundeck project configurations often contain sensitive information. In Rundeck Enterprise, project configurations are encrypted.

Single Sign-on Support

In addition to using Active Directory or LDAP for authentication, Rundeck Enterprise can be configured to work with the SSO solutions (e.g. Okta or Ping Identity)

Usability

For most users, Rundeck is their interface to operations. Rundeck Enterprise provides an enhanced user experience for all involved — job writers, job runners, observers, and Rundeck administrators.

Rule-based workflow to control step flow and conditions

The Ruleset Workflow Strategy Plugin gives the Job writer a lot more control over a Job's workflow. You can define a set of rules to describe when and if steps in the workflow should run. Now you can easily do things like forking/merging workflow and conditional execution of specific steps.

flow
Workflow Visualization

Rundeck Enterprise includes the ability to visualize workflows. During execution, the workflow visualization indicates the progress of a job as it executes. This visualization feature is useful for a Job writer or Job runner to understand a Job at a glance. Additionally, the visualization is an indispensable part of helping a broader audience follow the execution of a job.

webhooks
Rule-based webhooks route to jobs based on payload data

Webhooks are an essential integration tool. Webhook support in Rundeck Enterprise includes a powerful capability to parse the load of a Webhook and take action based on rules you define. For example, enable selective execution of one or more Jobs based on event data passed to Rundeck via Webhook.

calendar
Schedule Visualization

Rundeck Enterprise includes a schedule visualization tool that will show you all of the upcoming Job executions. This feature provides an administrative view that is essential to anyone using Rundeck to execute scheduled batch or maintenance tasks.

bookmark
Progress Badge

Not everyone who runs or views a Job will understand the log output. The Progress Badge feature enables you to easily create graphic badges that will display if the log output for a Job step matches the conditions you define. This feature is helpful to indicate if a step has succeeded, failed, or a warning is needed. Colors, custom text, and even emojis ("😄💯") are supported.
