Puppet Was the Essential Element Allowing Shopzilla to Roll Out Cloud Services to Their Internal Customers
Shopzilla is one of the largest and most comprehensive online shopping networks on the web. Shopzilla needed a tool that could quickly and accurately build new server configurations, deliver them to their customers on-demand for as long as they needed them, and release the resources when they were finished. They chose Puppet to overcome from these challenges. By deploying Puppet selected over Cfengine to automate the request and delivery process, Shopzilla no longer has to spend huge amounts of time communicating back and forth with the customer. Reduced interaction with the customer has resulted in quicker turnarounds and huge time and cost savings for Shopzilla.
