Cloud and Hosting Leader Secure-24 Relies on Puppet Enterprise to Build and Support Customers' Infrastructure
PORTLAND, OR, Mar 12, 2013 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --
Puppet Labs, the leading provider of IT automation software for
system administrators, announced today that Secure-24 Inc., a leading
provider of cloud computing, application outsourcing and enterprise
hosting services, leverages Puppet Enterprise to help manage its
customers' IT landscapes and business-critical applications.
Secure-24 was previously using Puppet open source; however as its
infrastructure grew and its customers' needs changed, the company
decided to move to Puppet Enterprise, Puppet Labs' commercial
offering, due to the software's built-in manageability and enterprise
support. Secure-24 is also able to save time with the Puppet
Enterprise GUI console, which allows the company's IT team to
identify resources without having to go to the end-point system.
"We were really happy with Puppet, but we had some limitations and we
needed that extra support, management and out-of-the-box capabilities
that came with Puppet Enterprise," said Sean Millichamp, Enterprise
Architect at Secure-24. "When we moved to Puppet Enterprise, we
didn't look at any other IT automation solution as we were already
happy with Puppet open source, and our team was already familiar with
it. There was no reason to look elsewhere."
"It is critical for cloud and hosting companies, like Secure-24, to
keep up with the unique IT demands of their enterprise clients," said
Luke Kanies, founder and CEO of Puppet Labs. "Puppet Enterprise
allows the IT team at Secure-24 to free up time from monotonous tasks
and focus on the higher demands of their enterprise customers."
