Puppet Labs Announces Deployment at International Securities Exchange

Leading US Options Exchange 'Puppetizes' Their Infrastructure to Automatically Configure, Deploy and Manage Mission Critical Applications

PORTLAND, OR -- (Marketwire) -- 11/07/12 -- Puppet Labs, the leading provider of IT automation software for system administrators, today announced that the International Securities Exchange (ISE), a leading US options exchange, has completed the initial phase of its deployment of the Puppet Enterprise solution.

Puppet Enterprise enables ISE to automatically and consistently configure, deploy and manage its mission critical trading applications. The ability to automatically make changes and upgrades simultaneously across hundreds of servers ensures consistency and dramatically improves the efficiency of deploying new technology releases. The Puppet Enterprise console, the software's graphical user interface, enables ISE to quickly audit production systems for compliance.

"The software deployment automation supported by Puppet Enterprise has enabled us to significantly reduce the time it takes to deploy new software in our production environment," said Rob Cornish, Technology Strategy and Operations Officer at ISE. "Treating our infrastructure as code enables us to add automation, version control, and regression testing to infrastructure deployments. Puppet Enterprise gives us unprecedented control over change management, improves the audit trail associated with new software deployments, and reduces the software delivery cycle timeframe from days to minutes."

"We designed Puppet Enterprise specifically to help system administrators easily automate repetitive tasks, quickly deploy critical applications and proactively manage infrastructure change, whether it's one or hundreds of servers," said Luke Kanies, CEO at Puppet Labs. "ISE is leveraging the power of Puppet Enterprise, resulting in the ability for system administrators to automate away menial tasks and supports an agile dev-test-ops environment."

In the initial phase of its Puppet Enterprise roll-out, ISE automated the software deployment for its mission critical applications running on Linux. ISE will expand its use of Puppet Enterprise to its entire Windows environment, which includes Linux and Windows, by year end.
