Puppet Enterprise Receives Editor's Choice Award From Virtualization Review
PORTLAND, OR, Jan 03, 2013 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --
Virtualization Review today announced that Puppet Enterprise from
Puppet Labs, the leading provider of IT automation software, is an
Editor's Choice recipient of the Virtualization Review Reader's
Choice Awards. The 2013 awards are chosen by readers of the
publication, and presented to vendors in 16 categories ranging from
Virtualization Management and Cloud Infrastructure to Business
Continuity and Virtualization Automation.
E-mail invitations were sent to 20,000 Virtualization Review readers
in October 2012 to vote on more than 446 products. A team of editors
reviewed the votes to ensure that they legitimately came from their
readers. Puppet Enterprise won the Editor's Choice category, which
focuses on startups that received high marks by readers, and who are
producing innovative products.
"In the course of sitting through an endless stream of briefings with
virtualization and cloud vendors, I almost always find that when I
ask vendors to list their primary competitors, they usually say there
really isn't anyone else who does exactly what they do," says Bruce
Hoard, editor in chief of Virtualization Review. "The fact is a lot
of vendors are shooting for the same goals, but in different ways.
That's where the annual Virtualization Review Reader's Choice Awards
and Ultimate Buyer's Guide enables users to assess hundreds of
products in one, central location."
All of the winners are highlighted in the December 2012/January 2013
issue. A downloadable PDF of the article is also available at
"Our goal with Puppet Enterprise was to give system administrators
powerful automation software to manage infrastructure more
efficiently, so they can focus on larger strategic projects," said
Luke Kanies, founder and CEO of Puppet Labs. "We are honored that the
readers and editors of Virtualization Review recognize Puppet
Enterprise as an essential tool within virtual environments."
