IT monitoring software developer ScienceLogic has integrated its solutions with Puppet Labs’ Puppet Enterprise 3.0 automation solution. The integration is designed to “empower IT administrators to standardize, automate change, and manage policies,” according to ScienceLogic statement submitted to ChannelPro-SMB.
ScienceLogic software integrates the core IT monitoring functions needed to run distributed computing infrastructures. Multi-tenancy, dynamic mapping of resources, and real-time dashboards are key components.
“Today, IT administrators are challenged to ‘see’ the impact of change in their data centers on the health, performance, and availability of their systems,” says ScienceLogic CEO David Link. “Standardization and improved IT best practices can reduce overall outage risk — and that’s just what our API integration with Puppet Labs aims to accomplish.”
The ScienceLogic platform offers a unified code base, user interface, and centralized data repository. Benefits of the integration with Puppet Enterprise include:
Key benefits of the integration include:
- Intelligent discovery and visual display of all Puppet nodes and resources.
- Multi-tenant views, for the instant delivery of information to groups and individuals.
- Integrated, real-time event generation and management.
- Alignment of Puppet node and facts inventory data with IT infrastructure for centralized asset management.
- Comprehensive dashboards and views for quick access to critical information.
“The work that ScienceLogic is doing is a great contribution to our commercial ecosystem, highly complementary to Puppet Enterprise 3.0 and of great value to Puppet Enterprise customers,” says Mitch Sonies, Puppet Labs’ vice president of business and corporate development. “The strength of the Puppet Labs commercial ecosystem is a key differentiator for our customers and an important and growing contributor to our market leadership.”
