and Puppet Labs
have teamed up to deliver the Eucalyptus-Puppet Integration Kit for cloud
The Eucalyptus Puppet Integration Kit
is a new joint solution that makes it easier for users to configure, provision
and manage Eucalyptus on-premises IAAS (infrastructure-as-a-service) clouds
using the Puppet management system.
The integration kit is available at no
cost and is compatible with the open-source and enterprise versions of the
Puppet systems management platform and the Eucalyptus on-premises IAAS cloud
software. The kit provides cloud resource and data center administrators with a
faster and more efficient way to mange clouds and enterprise data centers.
Eucalyptus Systems is the creator of the
Eucalyptus independent software platform for IAAS clouds, and Puppet Labs is
the maker of the Puppet open-source systems management solution. Puppet is an
enterprise systems management platform that standardizes the way IT staffs
deploy and manage infrastructure in the enterprise and the cloud. Puppet helps
teams create a seamless IT infrastructure across departments to reduce costs
and increase productivity.
Meanwhile, the Eucalyptus on-premises
cloud software platform lets organizations implement enterprise-scale IAAS
using their virtualized infrastructure, without modification, special-purpose
hardware or reconfiguration, company officials said. With Eucalyptus, users can
make more efficient use of their computing resources, increase agility and
deploy new applications faster, while protecting sensitive data and reducing
"The new Eucalyptus-Puppet Integration
Kit can significantly reduce the resources needed to deploy and manage
enterprise IAAS clouds as a part of a company's overall IT infrastructure,"
said Rich Wolski, co-founder and chief technology officer at Eucalyptus
Systems, in a statement. "Puppet is successfully used by thousands of
organizations to manage their data center systems, and now Eucalyptus users can
easily benefit from Puppet in their private cloud environments. We are pleased
to add an open-source leader such as Puppet Labs to the growing Eucalyptus
The Eucalyptus-Puppet Integration Kit
enhances the highly elastic and scalable Eucalyptus private cloud environment
with the control, management and automated provisioning of Puppet. With Puppet
and Eucalyptus, organizations can deploy a scalable and resilient IAAS cloud
environment that is seamlessly integrated into their data center
"Eucalyptus is a recognized innovator
in highly elastic and scalable IAAS cloud computing using on-premises data
center resources," said Teyo Tyree, co-founder of Puppet Labs, in a statement.
"With this partnership and the new integration kit, data center and cloud
administrators have a powerful open-source solution for automating and managing
Eucalyptus cloud development and application provisioning in a scalable,
flexible and consistent manner."
