October 24, 2016

Puppet announced a new VMware vRealize Automation plugin for Puppet Enterprise.

The new vRealize Automation plugin for Puppet Enterprise enables self service provisioning of compliant infrastructure across on premises and multi-cloud environments, as quickly as the business needs to deliver new software, faster.

To meet the needs of today’s software-driven world where slow processes can impact a business, Puppet has worked with VMware to develop the new vRealize Automation integration for Puppet Enterprise which accelerates the delivery and operation of infrastructure throughout its lifecycle with a fully-automated, self-service provisioning workflow.

“IT teams are under tremendous pressure to deliver and operate infrastructure rapidly to support the needs of the business and its customers,” said Nigel Kersten, CIO at Puppet. “By combining enhanced governance from vRealize Automation with Puppet’s ability to dynamically provision and configure infrastructure on demand, a developer can now make a request and receive fully compliant and provisioned infrastructure whenever it's needed.”

“VMware Cloud Management customers value agility and control along with the flexibility to choose the tools to manage their application environments,” said Purnima Padmanabhan, vice president, product management, Cloud Management Business Unit, VMware. “The new vRealize Automation plugin for Puppet Enterprise enables our mutual customers to deploy, configure and manage applications by using vRealize Automation's powerful blueprinting and service orchestration along with Puppet's industry leading configuration management capabilities. This is yet another example of VMware's commitment to our ecosystem partners to help bring best-of-breed solutions that benefit IT and DevOps teams.”

The new vRealize Automation plugin for Puppet Enterprise enables organizations to create blueprint templates for virtual machines using vRealize Automation’s graphical user interface, and then triggers Puppet Enterprise to configure and continually manage the VM. This lets IT teams provide automated, self-service provisioning on day one while continually enforcing desired configurations on an ongoing basis. As a result, IT can instantly deliver fully configured infrastructure to developers who request it.

"Puppet Enterprise and VMware vRealize Automation are a critical part of the Kovarus Cloud Enablement Framework,” said Erik Melander, executive vice president, solutions at Kovarus. “They provide our customers the automation and orchestration technology to manage applications during their entire lifecycle. We are proud of how we partner with Puppet, VMware, and our customers to develop workflows improving software delivery and infrastructure operations. “

The vRealize Automation plugin for Puppet Enterprise will be generally available November 2016.
