They verify the state of our servers so we can see what’s actually deployed, not just what we think has been deployed.
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) August 22, 2013
Metafor Software, the industry’s first provider of environment anomaly detection solutions for web and data center applications, today announced a new integration with Puppet and Puppet Enterprise configuration management solutions. Metafor enhances Puppet, making it easy to verify the actual state of servers, keep dev, QA, and production environments in sync, and keep cluster environments uniform. Metafor extends Puppet to monitor for drift across your entire infrastructure, not just what is on the manifest.
Metafor replaces manual troubleshooting with automated diagnostics to identify and fix environment anomalies before they impact business. With Metafor, performance troubleshooting and release verification can be completely automated through its REST API. Automatically verify server configuration after Puppet runs, monitor for drift in files and packages, and trigger Puppet when drift is detected.
Metafor Software installs with a single command, and identifies environment problems within minutes.
“We could have saved a week of work if we’d discovered Metafor earlier,” says Jeremy Hutchings, Technical Director at MetroLyrics. “They verify the state of our servers so we can see what’s actually deployed, not just what we think has been deployed.”
“Now I spend 4-5x less time on drift than I did before implementing Metafor Software,” says Kelcey Damage, Infrastructure Systems Architect at Backbone Technology. “Metafor’s anomaly monitoring is a massive time saver.”
“The power of automation shines when you combine Puppet and Metafor,” said Jenny Yang, Co-founder and CEO, Metafor Software. “For example, a company using Puppet and Metafor could easily detect drift across hundreds of servers in multiple environments and automatically trigger corrective action when differences are found.”
Metafor for Puppet is currently available by invitation only, Puppet users can request access at: http://metaforsoftware.com/puppet.
Metafor is attending Puppet Conf 2013 in San Francisco, August 22/23. To see a demo of Metafor for Puppet, contact: @metaforsoftware or info(at)metaforsoftware(dot)com.
