Puppet Heads to the Enterprise: A Discussion with Luke Kanies

” Puppet has come a long way since its early days as an
alternative to cfengine. The open source configuration management
system has grown by leaps and bounds in the last few years, and is
now officially taking on the enterprise. We talk with Puppet Labs
founder and CEO Luke Kanies about what that means, and where Puppet
is going.

“If you’re not familiar with Puppet, you might want to take a
look. Puppet is a framework to simplify system administration, with
a large (and growing) community of users and developers who not
only improve Puppet, but also share recipes for system
administration for reuse in other environments.

“It’s already being used in the enterprise, of course, but today
the company made it official with the announcement of Puppet
Enterprise: A fully supported, tested, and tuned release of Puppet
that streamlines installation and comes with support and services
for enterprise deployments. What’s next? We asked Kanies to give
the details about the enterprise release and where Puppet is going,
plus some thoughts on the open source landscape.”
