Reusable Infrastructure Components
With Puppet Enterprise, administrators and developers can build unified models for application deployment. Puppet Enterprise is built for the cloud and with almost 300 community contributed modules the dream of fully automated infrastructure and application deployment has never been easier to realize. Puppet makes it easy to build reuse and share application and system configuration models.
Transitioning to the Cloud
Citrix CloudStack 3 and Puppet Enterprise 2.0 deliver an operational tool kit that enables businesses to transition workloads between traditional bare metal infrastructure and internal or external clouds. Puppet Enterprise enables users to model applications, infrastructure, and security requirements. Those models can be used to seamlessly migrate development, testing, and production infrastructures from traditional bare-metal infrastructure to internal or external clouds.
Living the DevOps Dream
DevOps is a cultural shift from silo-ed operational and development team to integrated DevOps teams. Automated configuration management and on demand infrastructure are enabling technologies for this shift. On demand infrastructure enables developers to develop and test their applications in environments that mirror their ultimate production environments. Automating configuration management tasks and managing infrastructure as reusable code allows the infrastructure requirements to carry through the development and testing phases and cleanly into production. With these tools, organizations can deploy often and with confidence. Puppet Enterprise and Citrix CloudStack 3 enable customers to make the shift to DevOps today!
