Latest Puppet Labs Release Can Provision Docker, AWS, Bare Metal

The latest software update from Puppet Labs (Enterprise 3.8) brings provisioning capabilities for Docker containers, AWS infrastructure and bare metal.

Puppet Node Manager, released late last year, initially included a rules-based method to organize servers based on key characteristics, such as application, role, data center, operating environment, and geographic location. With Puppet Enterprise 3.8, Puppet Node Manager includes capabilities for automating the provisioning of infrastructure, from containers to bare metal.

“Businesses are adopting DevOps tools and practices because they are under tremendous pressure to deliver new and reliable services faster, across an ever-expanding set of infrastructure technologies, “ said Nigel Kersten, CIO of Puppet Labs. “By adding support for Docker, AWS and bare metal, Puppet Enterprise 3.8 makes it faster and easier to provision and manage nearly any infrastructure technology. Now, IT teams can focus less time on managing change, and more time driving change throughout their organizations.”

Puppet Labs Acquires Cloudsmith for IT Test Automation

Puppet Labs, which develops IT automation software for system administrators, has acquired Cloudsmith, a developer of tools for rapidly building and testing infrastructure automation. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Puppet Labs’ software is used by enterprises to configure and manage their IT infrastructure.

Cloudsmith is the developer of Geppetto, an integrated development environment (IDE) for building and publishing Puppet modules. The company also developed Stack Hammer, a service for integrating, testing, and deploying collections of Puppet modules as complete “stacks” through integrations with GitHub and Amazon EC2. Following the acquisition, both Geppetto and Stack Hammer will continue to be developed and supported, and all Cloudsmith employees will be retained and integrated into Puppet Labs.

"We have been working with the Puppet Labs team and community for years and find we have a shared vision, culture, and passion around helping IT teams improve their lives through automation,” said Mitch Sonies, CEO and founder of Cloudsmith. “And while the Cloudsmith Geppetto community has grown to more than 10,000 users in a short period of time, together with Puppet Labs we’re looking forward to bringing Geppetto’s ease-of-automation benefits to many, many more.”
