LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - Oct 6, 2015) - Puppet Labs, the leading provider of IT automation software, today announces that it has achieved APN DevOps Competency by Amazon Web Services (AWS) as part of the AWS Partner Network (APN) Competency Program. Puppet Labs earned this distinction based on demonstrated customer success, technical proficiency and the proven success of its declarative model for infrastructure as code.

"The business and organizational benefits of DevOps are undeniable -- they've been proven by rigorous research and validated by our own customers' successes," said John Leon, director of alliances at Puppet Labs. "With so many of our customers relying on Puppet Enterprise to help manage their AWS environments, we're happy to achieve the APN DevOps Competency distinction. We look forward to continuing to extend the power of Puppet on AWS so more organizations around the world can move faster, without breaking things."

The APN Competency Program makes it simple for AWS customers to quickly identify qualified APN Partners who have demonstrated technical proficiency and verified success in specialized solutions and industry verticals. Customers can be assured they are working with qualified partners, since all partner products and solutions are validated by internal AWS teams. APN Partners awarded the DevOps Competency have proven success providing tools to deliver continuous integration, continuous delivery or configuration management for customers who run their infrastructure on the AWS platform.

Puppet Labs pioneered a declarative approach to infrastructure as code, a necessary prerequisite for common DevOps best practices such as version control, code review and continuous delivery, which help ensure fast and reliable deployments. Adopting these DevOps best practices has been confirmed to help organizations achieve greater speed, reliability and set themselves up for future innovation and growth.

The 2015 State of DevOps Report found that high-performing IT organizations are able to achieve higher levels of both throughput and stability through the use of DevOps practices -- a key reason the movement has gained so much traction. These organizations are able to deploy code 30 times more frequently and 200 times faster than their lower-performing peers. They also have 60 percent fewer failures and recover 168 times faster.
