Puppet acquires Distelli to expand automation across software delivery lifecycle
Puppet, an open-source software configuration management provider, has announced the acquisition of Distelli, a Seattle-based infrastructure automation company, to combine its global reach and DevOps leadership with the latter’s container and application deployment offerings.
The acquisition of Distelli gives Puppet an ability to provide enterprises end-to-end visibility into and control over application delivery regardless of what the application is running on, whether it is VMs or containerised applications running on-premises, or in any cloud. Both the companies are merging their operations and development workflows, so that the teams can iterate rapidly and ship early.
Distelli will continue its operation out of Puppet’s office in Seattle.
Rahul Singh, CEO and founder of Distelli, said: “With Puppet’s category-defining DevOps technology and expertise, customers will have access to automation best practices of the world’s most innovative companies.”
Puppet has also added more than 250 new enterprises to its customer base over the past 12 months. Over 37,000 companies, including more than three quarters of the Fortune 100, use Puppet’s product to some extent. In May, the company updated Puppet Enterprise, its newer version of Open Source Puppet, and launched two new products: Lumogon and Puppet Cloud Discovery, which provide enterprise IT teams a greater insight into the services running across containerised applications and cloud infrastructure. The company also revealed a series of new partner offerings for Enterprise, with Amazon Web Services (AWS), Cisco, Nutanix and VMware among the companies involved.
