Puppet Labs Now Certified to Run on Red Hat OpenStack 
Puppet Labs' Solutions Enable Scalable, Enterprise-Ready OpenStack
BOSTON, MA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/12/13 --   RED HAT SUMMIT -- Puppet
Labs, the leading provider of IT automation software for system
administrators, today at the Red Hat Summit announced its cloud
automation technology is certified to run with Red Hat OpenStack, Red
Hat's commercial OpenStack distribution. 
Red Hat OpenStack is Red Hat's highly scalable
Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) solution that delivers an open,
flexible, and enterprise-ready private cloud foundation built on the
community OpenStack project integrated with and optimized for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux. Red Hat OpenStack Certification helps customers
identify third-party solutions that have been tested and certified
with the Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform as well as Red
Hat Cloud Infrastructure. Red Hat OpenStack customers will benefit
from Puppet Labs' enterprise-proven IT automation technologies, which
enable them to rapidly deploy and manage highly scalable and reliable
OpenStack clouds. 
"OpenStack is a highly disruptive technology, and we expect Red Hat's
release to transform cloud computing much as Red Hat Enterprise Linux
did in the operating systems space," said Luke Kanies, CEO of Puppet
Labs. "The use of Puppet Labs' technologies and Red Hat OpenStack
provides an easily consumable, reliable, scalable and automated
solution for enterprise customers." 
Puppet Labs' enterprise-grade scalability and reliability coupled
with its support for heterogeneous environments allows customers to
easily scale from a single-server proof of concept to thousands of
servers across all enterprise operating systems, cloud environments
and service providers. Through employing Puppet Labs' declarative,
model-based approach to cloud automation, system administrators gain
the agility they need to rapidly deploy and manage new applications.
Puppet Labs' technologies are also included in some of the largest
OpenStack deployments -- most notably at CERN, which automates the
creation of 250 new virtual machines per day. 
"Red Hat is an established leader in the enterprise and in building
commercial products from open source software, positioning the
company well
 for growing interest and use of the OpenStack cloud
software," said Jay Lyman, Senior Analyst, 451 Research. "Part of Red
Hat's commercial and community success comes from its enterprise
partner ecosystem, which also translates to deeper, fuller OpenStack
support. Core to that ecosystem is Puppet Labs, which is among the
primary providers of cloud automation in the enterprise and in
OpenStack implementations." 
"By 2015, CERN will be managing 150,000 virtual machines running on
15,000 physical servers, without increasing current headcount," said
Tim Bell, Infrastructure Services Manager at CERN. "The robustness of
the Puppet Labs' solutions for OpenStack and the innovative community
behind it are key for us to achieve these goals." 
"We're pleased to have Puppet Labs join us in the Red Hat OpenStack
Cloud Infrastructure Partner Network," said Mike Werner, senior
director, Global Ecosystems, Red Hat. "To help customers get the most
out of the Red Hat OpenStack offerings and our open hybrid cloud
solutions, we work closely with technology companies like Puppet Labs
that provide powerful and complementary solutions. We look forward to
continued collaboration with Puppet Labs as a key member of the Red
Hat OpenStack ecosystem."
