Future plans for Puppet?

Latest response

What's the future roadmap in terms of Puppet integration with Satellite?

Any insights appreciated, but would particularly love to hear from @richjerrido

Hi,

I cannot speak on behalf of Red Hat, but all signs seems to suggest that the future of their co-operation is stable.

Vendors cannot and should not "commit suicide" by locking customers into specific solutions that suit only them.

Red Hat's document on satellite 6.4 shows ongoing support for Puppet:

https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_satellite/6.4/pdf/puppet_guide/Red_Hat_Satellite-6.4-Puppet_Guide-en-US.pdf

In my line of work, I regularly meet with both Red Hat and Puppet Enterprise managers and technical staff. Their relationship looks good from my point of view. IBM is now coming into the picture too, but I do not think they would repeat the mistakes Oracle made when they acquired Sun Microsystems.
