Chef Software

Chef is a leader in Continuous Automation software, an innovator in cloud-native operations and one of the founders of the DevOps movement. Chef works with more than a thousand of the most innovative companies around the world to deliver their vision of digital transformation, providing the practices and platform to deliver software at speed. It’s flagship platform, Chef Automate, unifies infrastructure and applications work and enables enterprise organizations to rapidly and securely build, deploy and manage any application, legacy or modern, in any environment. Its Habitat application automation product supports an ever-widening array of application release scenarios, enabling teams to ‘build, deploy and manage’ any app, anywhere. It is ideally suited to ‘Lift, Shift and Modernize’ initiatives as enterprises seek to find a unified way to ship all of their apps – from monoliths to microservices, bare metal to containers and datacenter to cloud. InSpec, designed to enable compliance at velocity to accelerate DevSecOps, is the first step in Chef’s ‘Detect, Correct, Automate’ approach to cloud migration and continuous automation. It helps organizations maintain an up-to-date view of compliance status in production, detect security issues long before they reach production and reduce risk while delivering applications faster. Chef open source enables users to define infrastructure as code, ensuring that configuration policy is flexible, versionable, testable and human readable. Servers managed by Chef are continuously evaluated against their desired state, ensuring that configuration drift is automatically corrected, and configuration changes are universally applied. Used in concert, Chef products do more, better and faster to enable cross-functional development, operations and security teams to develop, deploy and manage software in the cloud than any other DevOps product suite available today.
