With more than 3.5 million downloads globally for Puppet in the past 12 months and thousands of customers using Puppet to configure and manage their IT infrastructure, including NYSE, Cisco and Zynga, Puppet has become the de facto industry standard for IT automation, and is a rising trend among system administrators here in Asia.
"Puppet is a technology that changes the face of system administration at a rapid pace. This is already very evident in the Western world, and OlinData is determined to spread the word about Puppet in the Asian continent as well," commented Mr Walter Heck, owner & founder of Olindata. "We are very proud to bring Puppet training and certification to Asia, as there is a lot to be gained by IT companies everywhere from adopting configuration management technology."
Besides being the founder of OlinData, Mr. Heck. who is also an active Puppet user for several years now, "cannot imagine living without configuration management anymore". The same goes for many other Puppet users.
"MicroWare is the leading ASP service provider in its market segment. For us, Puppet is an invaluable asset to manage our mission-critical global infrastructure, allowing us to quickly and reliably scale while meeting and exceeding customer expectations day after day," said Mr Joost Faassen, owner & founder of LinkORB.
