Puppet announced the availability of Puppet Docker Image Build, which automates the container build process to help organizations as they define, build, and deploy containers into production environments.
This new set of capabilities adds to existing Puppet functionality for installing and managing container infrastructure, including Docker, Kubernetes, and Mesos, among others. With Puppet, organizations now have a standard, consistent way to install Docker operating environments as well as build and deploy containers, using the same code they rely on to automate the delivery and operation of all of their software — whether it’s in the datacenter, the cloud or on containers.
“For the last decade Puppet has enabled organizations to adopt the latest technologies and everything running on top of it, including virtualization, public and private clouds, and now containers,” said Deepak Giridharagopal, CTO at Puppet. “Over the last year our work around containers has been focused on helping customers install and operate next-gen infrastructure. Now we’re extending management to the software running on top of those environments to enable organizations to both build new services and move existing services to containers.”
With Puppet Docker Image Build, organizations get a familiar, predictable way to define and deploy the services that run on Docker containers. Puppet’s domain-specific language supports powerful ways of reusing application configurations, regardless of the underlying infrastructure they run on. Because Puppet provides a straightforward way to move existing services to containers without needing to redefine those services or reinvent the wheel, organizations can get the services they already have deployed to containers and running in production, faster.
Puppet Docker Image Build is available today.
