Puppet Labs, the creator of open source data center automation and configuration management framework Puppet, today announced its acquisition of the open source project called The Marionette Collective.
"Puppet has always focused on the problem of configuration management, but solving that doesn't make all of your problems go away," said Luke Kanies, CEO of Puppet Labs. "MCollective targets the next layer of change control and orchestration in a small but powerful tool that already integrates well with Puppet. With both Puppet and MCollective, our customers and users have a unified solution that scales from small departments and one-off installations to large server farms running tens of thousands of servers."
According to the press release, this relationship will put additional resources into the Marionette Collective project and accelerate its development.
