Ansible Galaxy is the repository of Ansible whereas Puppet forge is the repository of the puppet.
Error and Failure Handling:
In ansible, there will be no notification to the admin regarding any syntax failure until the task runs whereas in Puppet the error gets highlighted before the task runs and it makes it easier for the admin to do the modifications.
Management and Scheduling:
In Ansible, the server pushes configurations to nodes for quick deployment while In Puppet, the client pulls configurations from the server.
Setting up and Usage:
In Ansible, tt has a master and there are no agents that run on the client machine for Ansible and uses YAML syntax to write configurations whereas in Puppet it is very easy to install and use & it uses a client-server architecture.
Ansible and Puppet both the tools are excellent in their own ways for different reasons. If you have any business reason then you can make a choice of ansible as it is good for small and easy deployments while Puppet is often used for more complex or longer deployments.
