Puppet Labs Releases Puppet Enterprise 2015.3
December 08, 2015

Puppet Labs made available new products that enable organizations to configure, manage and orchestrate more of their business-critical applications and infrastructure.

Building on Puppet Labs’ first class support for Windows, Puppet Labs is making available a new module to provision and manage the Microsoft Azure infrastructure with Puppet Enterprise.

Puppet Labs is also releasing Puppet Application Orchestration, an entirely new way for organizations to orchestrate the deployment and management of business-critical infrastructure and applications.

“There is no future with fewer servers or fewer services that are less complex or less critical,” said Luke Kanies, Founder and CEO of Puppet Labs. “Today, we're taking a big step forward in helping reduce that complexity by providing the industry’s only unified solution to automate the entire lifecycle from initial infrastructure provisioning through application deployment, regardless of whether those applications run on Microsoft Azure or other cloud providers, virtual machines, physical servers or containers.”

Microsoft Azure Module Azure is Microsoft’s cloud platform for building, deploying and managing applications and services. Puppet Enterprise already works great on Azure, but with this new Azure module, Puppet Labs is making it possible to provision and manage Azure infrastructure with Puppet. With the new Azure module, users can model their desired state of Azure Virtual Machines in Puppet code and add these models to version control so changes and modifications to the code can be reviewed and shared across multiple teams. Puppet Enterprise will ensure that the model in the code matches the model in production and correct anything that has drifted from the desired state.

Now, with Puppet Enterprise, organizations on Microsoft Azure can use Puppet Enterprise to spearhead common DevOps practices and reduce the time needed to deploy and manage applications.

“Microsoft is committed to meeting customers wherever they are, thanks to our unique hybrid cloud offerings and our first-class support for Linux technologies,” said John Gossman, architect for Microsoft Azure. “With Puppet Enterprise for cross-platform support and the new Azure module, it’s now easier than ever for our joint customers to seamlessly transition from the data center to the cloud. Whether you’re running Windows or Linux applications or workloads in Azure, Puppet Enterprise helps you get the most out of your investment.”

Puppet Application Orchestration Puppet Labs is also announcing the general availability of Puppet Application Orchestration. Puppet Application Orchestration dramatically reduces the complexity of deploying and managing applications that are composed of many different services, and span many different servers and devices. Built on the strengths of Puppet and its unique DSL, Puppet Application Orchestration lets organizations model applications, including the relationships across their supporting services and underlying infrastructure. Based on that model, a new orchestrator ensures that the right things happen in the right order on the right machines as the application is deployed, updated or destroyed. This allows organizations to deploy secure, reliable applications in a consistent and repeatable way.

Puppet Application Orchestration is now available as part of a customer’s Puppet Enterprise license.
