Puppet Launches Barrage Of Products To Enable A 'New Age' Of Software Automation, DevOps
Puppet, a leader in the IT infrastructure automation space with its software configuration management tools, this week debuted an array of new products that expands the company into automation capabilities for application developers. The move aims to make Puppet – and its channel partners – into more prominent players in the all-important DevOps space.
Several of the new products, which provide application automation and container deployment, are based on software Puppet acquired when it bought continuous delivery firm Distelli a few weeks ago. Puppet also unveiled Puppet Discovery, a hybrid infrastructure management tool it developed in-house, and an update to its flagship Puppet Enterprise system.
Because of its automation capabilities, Puppet's software is already a central component of many companies' DevOps initiatives. The additions to the company's product portfolio move the company more squarely into software configuration in application development processes.
