We’re really looking forward to being at the F5 Agility 2017 conference in Chicago (1 - 2 August at the Chicago Hilton). Since I joined a little over two years ago, F5 is a name that keeps reverberating within Puppet — for example, our customers asking, "When can we get more of that Puppet-F5 goodness?" I think it’s safe to say that we’ve been wanting to work more closely with F5 for quite a while.
Well, now Puppet and F5 are formally partnering to provide key modules so our customers can accelerate their application deployments. With F5 as an Advanced Technology partner, we’ve been working hard to further our automation capabilities within F5’s enterprise-grade application services and in the application deployment process. So today, Puppet can provision and manage F5's BIG-IP platform and most of the LTM module, too. Plus there's more to come.
Modern IT organizations rely on automation frameworks like Puppet to increase the velocity of application deployments, and improve time to value for the business. Once deployed, however, it can be a complex challenge to keep the application fast, secure and highly available. As the market leader for intelligent traffic management, F5 gives operation teams the ability to quickly mitigate issues that threaten network performance, without compromising the speed of software delivery. And Puppet's automated configuration management platform makes it easy to deliver software securely and reliably, every time.
Stop by and see us at the Puppet kiosk in the Solution Expo. We’ll be delighted to talk with you about what we have available today, and what we plan to deliver in the near future.
