Chef Essentials (Free PDF)

File Size: 2.86 Mb

Chef is an indispensable tool to manage your infrastructure. It consists of a set of tools that are designed to work together to enable you to model and manage your systems. This is a large space to fill, and Chef provides you with the tools to do this in a very flexible and powerful way. It achieves this through a combination of services, end host agents, a web interface, and command-line tools that work in unison to deliver an incredible suite of tools.

Chef's services are responsible for storing, managing, and distributing data about your infrastructure through an API. Endhost software agents that run on nodes (managed systems) are responsible for performing updates to systems, and the web interface, along with command-line tools, allows an administrator to edit and consume information that is vended by the API service.

One of the most attractive features of Chef is that you can leverage its API to easily integrate existing tools, or you can develop new tools to meet specific needs. Any organization with a moderate number of developer resources can harness the power of Chef to manage their systems. For example, one can easily build software to import data from Chef into a reporting tool of some form and dynamically reconfigure infrastructure based on a third-party tool's output—the sky's the limit. This is incredibly valuable to anybody who has an existing infrastructure because it provides a convenient path to integrate Chef into their environment.
