Using Chef Provisioning to Provision Machines

  • Stuart Preston


Chef Provisioning is a part of the Chef toolset that orchestrates the creation of machines and supporting infrastructure, particularly in the cloud but also for on-premises infrastructure too. It lets you define your application topology in an infrastructure-as-code way via one or more Chef recipes. This is particularly powerful in today's world of continuous delivery where we need fast feedback cycles - the ability to create, destroy, and re-create entire environments from scratch gives us flexibility, reliability, and repeatability; and as we know this eventually helps organizations reduce their time to market and lower support overheads by reducing recovery times.
