Wednesday, August 6, 2014  /  10AM PST

With the explosion of the Internet has come the challenge of building scalable, adaptive systems that can grow or shrink with an organization's needs both technologically and financially. Cloud providers such as EC2, Azure and Rackspce Cloud have dramatically lowered the barrier to dynamically resizing infrastructure on-demand. However, with an increase in the number of systems comes additional complexity; Chef empowers teams to scale their infrastructure in an automated, well-defined and repeatable fashion. You can use Chef to manage Linux, BSD and Windows hosts alongside one another, deploy software automatically, scale using cloud providers, and automate just about all aspects of your infrastructure. In this webcast, learn what Chef can offer your team from provisioning local development environments to deploying software and managing complex infrastructure.
