Puppet Labs, one of Portland’s hottest startups, is moving into new digs later this year.

puppetlabs12A testament to the company’s growth, Puppet Labs will be transitioning from its current Pearl District location to Block 300, a nine-story, 360,000 square foot building in Portland’s Skidmore District just west of Waterfront Park.

The startup will occupy 75,000 square feet of space on the fifth and sixth floors with room for 500 employees, the Oregonian notes. There are currently about 260 working at Puppet Labs’ current space, which we checked out in December.

Founded nine years ago in Nashville by CEO Luke Kanies, Puppet Labs helps system administrators efficiently manage data centers and computing networks through automation. The company, which has several big-name clients like Twitter, Zynga, and Disney, has raised $46 million in total funding after a $30 million investment last year from VMware.

    I would love for any of our overlords in government to explain the moral or logical basis for establishing a cap on drivers. What business is it of government to say how many people can work a particular job?
    Where is the harm in Uber?? Outside of existing taxi companies who are getting p0wned by a much better service?
    There is no reason to limit the number of Uber drivers other than to protect dirty smelly taxis. The council and mayor should at least just admit as much — they are using the power of government to protect the taxi lobby.
