Opscode offers cloud infrastructure automation to enterprise


Opscode announced the availability of Hosted Chef, its
new Private Chef product, and a growing number of partners and customers that
are joining with Opscode to realize the potential of cloud computing.

Companies large and small are embracing cloud computing
at a rapid rate.

In a recent Opscode survey sent to
8,000 members of its community, 84 percent of respondents were confident that
their organizations would move to a private or public cloud in the next 12
months. 66 percent of respondents said they were already moving to the cloud or
had plans underway signaling a significant change in the way organizations are
approaching their IT infrastructure needs.

More and more organizations are adopting cloud
computing, and this adoption is often driven by devops teams charged with
building infrastructure for a new category of lighter, more agile
applications,” said Rachel Chalmers, research director for the 451 Group.

Once a company sees that five-minute server provisioning
is not only possible, but can be an everyday reality, it naturally becomes a
core component of their IT strategy,” said Jesse Robbins, co-founder and CEO of

Opscode provides a suite of proven cloud automation
infrastructure solutions that enables organizations to configure servers and
scale applications throughout the enterprise just as quickly as the cloud can
deliver them,” Robbins added.

Opscode announced a suite of new products and services
targeted at the enterprise market. The first is the availability of Opscode’s Hosted Chef,
adding an industry leading service level agreement and world-class 24/7 support
and services to their highly available, dynamically scalable, fully managed and
supported automation environment. The second is Opscode’s Private Chef, which
bundles all of the benefits of Hosted Chef within an appliance behind the
corporate firewall.

Both Hosted and Private Chef are based on Opscode’s
popular open-source systems integration framework built specifically for
automating the cloud. Chef allows IT teams to easily deploy servers and scale
applications throughout the entire infrastructure. Through a combination of configuration
management and service-oriented architectures, Chef makes it easy to create an
elegant, fully-automated infrastructure.
