Oct 22, 2013 (MarketLine via COMTEX) --
Puppet Labs, a provider of IT automation software for system administrators, has announced the availability of Puppet Enterprise 3.1. With this release, Puppet Enterprise gains new and enhanced capabilities that make the management of complex IT infrastructure easier and more agile.
New in Puppet Enterprise 3.1 is the event inspector, an interactive reporting tool that allows system administrators to visualize IT infrastructure changes at a glance. Moreover, with the event inspector, they get instant, actionable insight to troubleshoot and resolve issues, reducing the risk of downtime and accelerating time to resolution.
Also new in Puppet Enterprise 3.1 is expanded support for major enterprise IT platforms, including Google Compute Engine and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.0 as well as powerful capabilities for advanced users.
"With the event inspector in Puppet Enterprise 3.1, we're addressing a huge challenge for operations teams managing IT infrastructure changes," said Luke Kanies, founder and CEO of Puppet Labs. "System administrators typically have to sift through numerous log files and use ad hoc scripts to understand changes and their impact. The event inspector delivers an opinionated reporting tool to help them quickly identify the 'what,' 'where' and 'how' of changes, understand the impact, and then take action."
With new GCE integration, Puppet Enterprise enables customers to automatically provision, configure and deploy GCE cloud nodes with a single command. Puppet Enterprise 3.1 adds GCE to existing support for Amazon Web Services and VMware cloud platforms.
Puppet Enterprise 3.1 offers advanced capabilities for power users, including support for rebooting Windows after package installation, and discoverable and configurable classes and parameters from within the Puppet Enterprise GUI console.
The addition of support for Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 4.0 builds on Puppet Labs' commitment to support platforms critical to enterprise IT, joining a long list that includes RHEL 5.0 and 6.0, as well as Microsoft Windows, AIX, Solaris, Debian, Ubuntu and others.
