Puppet Labs, Inc. Key Developments

Puppet Labs Announces New Release of Puppet Enterprise 3.3

Puppet Labs announced Puppet Enterprise 3.3. This new release delivers enhancements in three key areas: It helps customers get started faster, enables automation of more IT infrastructure and is optimized for performance and scale. Puppet Enterprise 3.3 is available immediately. It is now easier to install and use Puppet Enterprise: Puppet Enterprise Installer Updates. The all-new web-based Puppet Enterprise installer walks administrators through the installation process, whether need a basic all-in-one installation or a scalable multi-server deployment. Expanded Simplified Agent Installation. This release makes it quicker and simpler than ever to bring new nodes under management. Simplified agent installation has been expanded to more platforms including RHEL 7, RHEL 4, AIX, Solaris 10, adding to the existing supported list of RHEL 5, RHEL 6, Ubuntu 10.04, Ubuntu 12.04, Debian 6, Debian 7, SLES 11. Now it's easier to manage mixed-platform environments. Manifest Ordering. The new manifest ordering makes it simpler to define the order in which changes will be executed, making it easier for new admins to get started with Puppet Enterprise. Best of all, with manifest ordering, existing Puppet manifests will work without modification. Expanded List of Puppet Enterprise Supported Modules. With this release, Puppet Labs is adding three more modules to list of Puppet Enterprise Supported Modules with full commercial support: The VCS repo module allows administrators to manage repositories and pull code from version control systems such as Git. The ACL module for Windows provides fine-grained control of security, with the ability to set permissions for users and groups from within Puppet Enterprise. The Windows Powershell module enables administrators to manage services such as backups, user profiles, IIS, Exchange and more from Puppet Enterprise, by executing PowerShell commandlets. Enhanced Performance and Usability Platform enhancements in Puppet Enterprise improve Puppet master processing performance by as much as 50%, and enable up to 25% more agent requests, while maintaining high performance. Another improvement in Puppet Enterprise: console data export. Administrators can export data captured by Puppet Enterprise and import it into their tool of choice to create reports and answer questions about infrastructure, such as which nodes have a particular configuration, and which are out of compliance. Automating more: Puppet Enterprise 3.3 enables Puppet admins to manage more platforms, helping customers automate more of their IT infrastructure. This release extends support to Ubuntu 14 LTS, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 and Windows Server 2012 R2. It also includes further enhancements to Razor, a tech preview capability which enables admins to automatically provision new hardware. Pricing and availability: download Puppet Enterprise 3.3 and try it out free for up to 10 nodes. Annual subscription options including license, support and maintenance start at $112 per node.
