Zenoss and Puppet Collaborate to Deliver Automated Deployment and Monitoring of Cloud Applications and Infrastructure

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwire - Sep 22, 2011) - Zenoss Inc., a leading provider of management software for physical, virtual, and cloud-based IT infrastructures, today announced a new extension that provides a direct integration with Zenoss Core and Puppet.

"The key goal for IT operations today is to automate the full lifecycle of application and infrastructure delivery from provisioning through monitoring and analytics," said Bill Karpovich, CEO and Co-Founder of Zenoss. "Pre-integrating Zenoss with Puppet makes it much easier for cloud shops, DevOps and traditional operations to achieve this vision."

The new "ZenPack" provides end-to-end automation of provisioning, configuration and monitoring for infrastructure and applications deployed in the cloud and/or on traditional infrastructure. Working together, Zenoss and Puppet Labs, a leading provider of IT automation software for systems administrators, are making it easier for IT shops to achieve full-lifecycle automation for their IT applications and infrastructure.

"Managing infrastructure at scale requires automation. Automating the deployment of applications doesn't stop with the application itself," explains Teyo Tyree, VP of Business Development and Co-Founder of Puppet Labs. "The Puppet ZenPack makes configuring your Zenoss service assurance solution a seamless part of your Puppet managed infrastructure."
