Puppet Labs Joins ProfitBricks' Growing List of Infrastructure Automation Tools for DevOps Pros

Cloud Provider Continues in Its Push for Painless Infrastructure With Support for More Infrastructure Automation Technology

SAN ANTONIO, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 10/06/15 -- ProfitBricks, the leading provider of painless cloud infrastructure, has added yet another tool for the growing DevOps community as it announced today that the ProfitBricks cloud supports Puppet Labs software, the most widely adopted configuration management tool. DevOps teams using ProfitBricks now have a wider suite of infrastructure automation technologies to choose from when building and maintaining their cloud infrastructure, as well as a burgeoning community of fellow DevOps professionals in the ProfitBricks cloud to tap into for knowledge and support.

Puppet enables DevOps teams to automate and centralize the configuration of their cloud. Through the use of Puppet, users can automate every stage of application delivery, saving significant amounts of time from the initial provisioning stage through to the automation of deployment.

"Puppet Labs wants to make it possible for everyone to be able to quickly adopt the best technology available in the market," said John Leon, director of alliances at Puppet Labs. "We're happy to be part of ProfitBricks' DevOps Central so more organizations from around the world have access to the tools that can help them move faster, confidently."

"By supporting Puppet, the ProfitBricks cloud now has the toolset required for DevOps teams to use their preferred automation technology when creating, managing and modifying their virtual datacenters," said Matt Baldwin, chief architect at ProfitBricks. "A wider choice of automation tools helps to remove concerns about a need to reskill DevOps teams, and enhances the painless experience of the ProfitBricks cloud infrastructure."

ProfitBricks' support for Puppet, along with Ansible and Chef, follows the cloud infrastructure provider's launch of its DevOps Central community in April 2015. The company has since released its REST API along with support for a number of multi-cloud libraries and SDKs for Python, Ruby, .NET, Node.js, Go and Java.

"Once again ProfitBricks has given DevOps teams a reason to embrace the painless cloud computing experience that it provides," said Achim Weiss, CEO and co-founder of ProfitBricks. "The growth of our automation toolset with Puppet, Ansible and Chef is just another piece in our substantive and beneficial DevOps offering that has been rolled out this year. We can confidently assert that DevOps professionals can look forward to the community, tools and support from ProfitBricks that they need for their painless cloud experience."

@DevOpsSummit Stories
Most DevOps journeys involve several phases of maturity. Research shows that the inflection point where organizations begin to see maximum value is when they implement tight integration deploying their code to their infrastructure. Success at this level is the last barrier to at-will deployment. Storage, for instance, is more capable than where we read and write data. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Atwell, a Developer Advocate for NetApp, will discuss the role and value extensible storage infrastructure has in accelerating software development activities, improve code quality, reveal multiple deployment options through automated testing, and support continuous integration efforts. All this will be described using tools common in DevOps organizations.
Modern software design has fundamentally changed how we manage applications, causing many to turn to containers as the new virtual machine for resource management. As container adoption grows beyond stateless applications to stateful workloads, the need for persistent storage is foundational - something customers routinely cite as a top pain point. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Bill Borsari, Head of Systems Engineering at Datera, explored how organizations can reap the benefits of the cloud without losing performance as containers become the new paradigm.
In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Scott Davis, CTO of Embotics, discussed how automation can provide the dynamic management required to cost-effectively deliver microservices and container solutions at scale. He also discussed how flexible automation is the key to effectively bridging and seamlessly coordinating both IT and developer needs for component orchestration across disparate clouds – an increasingly important requirement at today’s multi-cloud enterprise.
"DevOps is set to be one of the most profound disruptions to hit IT in decades," said Andi Mann. "It is a natural extension of cloud computing, and I have seen both firsthand and in independent research the fantastic results DevOps delivers. So I am excited to help the great team at @DevOpsSUMMIT and CloudEXPO tell the world how they can leverage this emerging disruptive trend."
The current age of digital transformation means that IT organizations must adapt their toolset to cover all digital experiences, beyond just the end users’. Today’s businesses can no longer focus solely on the digital interactions they manage with employees or customers; they must now contend with non-traditional factors. Whether it's the power of brand to make or break a company, the need to monitor across all locations 24/7, or the ability to proactively resolve issues, companies must adapt to the new world.
