re: VMware Invests $30 Million In Puppet Labs
We have worked closely with Puppet Labs over the years and are glad to see its innovation recognized by this large investment. However, we think that PuppetGÇÖs independence is important. DevOps success really depends on the ability of organizations to select an application orchestration platform to enforce enterprise governance, compliance, configuration management policy, and security from a single control point. As Charles notes, Puppet Labs is gaining traction as a key DevOps ingredient. By working with Puppet Labs, we orchestrate configuration management compliance at the O/S level AND can enforce this compliance across the entire application platform and application stack. We frequently hear industry validation of this approach as a large value add because orchestrating the development lifecycle allows business to innovate faster, more securely and with more confidence. Enabling faster releases of software in the enterprise is not just a good thing, but a growing business imperative that we are happy to deliver for enterprises in partnership with Puppet Labs.
