Puppet Labs, Inc. Key Developments

Puppet Labs and Arista Networks Partner to Enable Software Defined Networking

Puppet Labs announced the availability of a native AristaEOS (Extensible Operating System) Puppet agent and an Arista EOS module on the Puppet Forge. Now, joint Puppet Enterprise and Arista customers can extend Puppet's management beyond servers and into the entire data center, making SDN a reality. With these integrations, Arista becomes the latest vendor to launch formal support through Puppet Labs' Puppet Supported Program, a certification program that enables organizations to deploy software faster and with fewer errors, iterate more quickly, and rapidly adapt to fast-changing business needs. Through server virtualization, cloud computing and software like Puppet, IT organizations have drastically reduced the time it takes to provision servers: what used to get done in weeks or months now gets done in minutes. But even as automation is being adopted more widely in IT, changes to networking equipment are all too often done manually, or rely on vendor-specific tools. Both of these tactics present barriers to the agility companies need to meet business demands in a fast-moving, competitive business landscape. Coupling the power of the native Puppet agent with the power of Arista's EOS allows teams to bypass the use of a proxy host and manage each network device as easily as any other Puppet node. The Arista module is built on Puppet Labs'NetDev standard for networking hardware support, allowing the same Puppet resources to manage different types of networking hardware with little to no modification. Puppet Labs provides full support of the Puppet agent to Puppet Enterprise customers, and Arista provides support for the Arista Puppet module.
