About Chef

The main function of Chef is to turn infrastructure into a code and automate its creation, deployment, and management. It is applicable to cloud-based, on-premises, and hybrid environments, simplifying monitoring and management of either infrastructure.

Chef is a great solution to solve both SMEs and large enterprises challenges and create innovative models maintaining growing needs for automation across IaaS and PaaS architectures. Users can develop dynamic systems that will manage the infrastructure, they can search real-time information, and use ‘Cookbooks’ and ‘recipes’ to communicate data to the chef-client.

Servers maintained by this tool are permanently evaluated in terms of their predefined state, making sure that configuration drift is automatically corrected. Other benefits of this program are easily enforced consisted configuration, customizable code for full flexibility, seamless migration, confidence through a testable code, and ad-hoc configuration with Chef workstation.
