Chef - Automate Your Infrastructure

Chef logo

Whether you have five or five thousand servers, Chef lets you manage them all by turning infrastructure into code. Infrastructure described as code is flexible, versionable, human-readable and testable. Whether your infrastructure is in the cloud, on-premises or in a hybrid environment, you can easily and quickly adapt to your business’s changing needs with Chef.

With the increasing number of physical and virtual servers available for workloads, comes increasingly complex server management. Servers are grouped per workload and are deployed on local virtualisation infrastructure or in remote datacenters. No matter the size of your infrastructure, automation and orchestration generally make life easier. With these open source automation tools, server configuration can be written once, and servers can be deployed automatically. Which tool you need, depends on your requirements and your current environment.

Compliance Automation: detect & correct

IT organisations are measured based on how they mitigate risk and ensure changes adhere to compliance policies. High-performing organisations pull Information Security earlier into the development process by automating compliance tests.

Becoming a high-performing, risk averse organisation is about two things:
• How frequently (and automatically and trivially) you can run compliance assessments;
• and once you discover vulnerabilities, how quickly you can then remediate them.
