Puppet Enterprise Achieves Certification for Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform

Today at OpenStack Summit Hong Kong, Puppet Labs, the leading provider of IT automation software, announced that its flagship commercial product, Puppet Enterprise, is tested and certified to interoperate with the Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform. The Certification ensures consistent performance and compatibility between the two solutions.

Puppet Labs' technologies power many of the largest enterprise OpenStack distributions and are used in large-scale OpenStack deployments by PayPal, Cisco, WebEx and CERN. With Puppet Enterprise certified on the Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack platform, joint customers will benefit from the ability to manage their OpenStack resources with Puppet Enterprise. For today's diverse IT environments, Puppet Enterprise provides unmatched interoperability across all enterprise operating systems and cloud environments, and integrates the management of compute, network and storage resources, enabling IT organizations to achieve greater operational efficiency and agility.

The Red Hat OpenStack Cloud Infrastructure Partner Network is designed for commercial organizations that offer plugins, hardware, software, or  services for customers to implement cloud infrastructure solutions powered by Red Hat products built on OpenStack technology. The program offers partners the opportunity to gain the necessary expertise with Red Hat's OpenStack technology through access to Red Hat releases and developer support, as well as key resources needed to test, certify, and publish solutions that leverage Red Hat's OpenStack offerings. The Red Hat OpenStack Cloud Infrastructure Partner Network includes industry leading partners from around the world, including independent hardware vendors (IHVs), original equipment manufacturer (OEM) partners, independent software vendors (ISVs), and system integrators who have joined the program to provide certified solutions and launch their own practices to support customer deployments.

Solutions that have achieved Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Certification, or which are certified for other products in Red Hat's Open Hybrid Cloud  portfolio, are available in the Red Hat Certified Solution Marketplace.

"Red Hat has been a major contributor to the OpenStack project and Puppet Labs' OpenStack modules," said Nigel Kersten, CTO at Puppet Labs. "Certifying Puppet Enterprise on the Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform is an example of our shared commitment to ensuring success for joint customers running OpenStack.

"We're pleased to have Puppet Labs join us in the Red Hat OpenStack Cloud Infrastructure Partner Network," said Mike Werner, senior director, Global Ecosystems, Red Hat.
