Smarsh is a leading provider of hosted solutions for archiving electronic communications. Currently, more than 20,000 customers depend on the SaaS company for archiving and compliance solutions for email, instant messaging, and social media platforms such as Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter. As Smarsh grew and its customer base expanded, so did its need to automate its IT environment and scale systems faster… and that’s where Puppet Enterprise came in.
Smarsh’s technical operations team turned to Puppet Enterprise to automate the IT infrastructure across their virtualized data centers worldwide. Benefits gained from using the automation software were tremendous. The team saw tighter and faster release cycles, and increased time savings. Brent Jones, senior systems architect at Smarsh, shares:
“Puppet Enterprise has paid for itself multiple times over just in terms of how much time it has saved us. With Puppet Enterprise, it now takes five minutes to run hundreds of machines instead of the ten-plus hours it would take manually.”
