SEATTLE, Feb. 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Opscode®, the leader in cloud infrastructure automation, today announced that Amazon Web Services' (AWS) new OpsWorks application management solution uses Opscode Chef™ as the framework to automate everything from configuring server instances to deploying applications in AWS cloud environments. AWS OpsWorks comes preconfigured with a default collection of Chef cookbooks for automating standard infrastructure operations, ensuring maximum consistency and control throughout the application development and deployment process. Using Opscode Chef, AWS OpsWorks delivers a flexible, automated, end-to-end solution for simplifying application management and speeding the path to innovation.
"As enterprise organizations look to cloud computing for leverage in the race to market, the scale and complexity of cloud deployments can quickly outpace the skills available to manage them. Automation solves for this skills gap by enabling IT with the tools necessary to effectively build and manage large-scale cloud infrastructure," said Adam Jacob, Chief Customer Officer, Opscode. "Opscode already has hundreds of customers using our Chef-based products to automate AWS clouds, so OpsWorks is not only a logical extension of Chef's benefits for AWS users, but further validation of Chef as a key component in any cloud-based, application management tool chain."
AWS OpsWorks uses Opscode Chef code recipes to automate, simplify, and accelerate the entire application lifecycle – from configuration to staging, deployment to shutdown – all with secure control. Using the Chef framework, OpsWorks provides an easy, step-by-step, highly repeatable and consistent process for building, managing, and deploying applications in AWS clouds. OpsWorks comes with a default set of Chef cookbooks that contain recipes to handle standard operations, including setting up and configuring application servers and deploying applications, across a wide range of scenarios. Because OpsWorks uses Chef, users can easily leverage hundreds of community-built configurations such as PostgreSQL, Nginx, and Solr. OpsWorks also makes it easy to upload and implement custom Chef recipes to perform additional tasks, including specialized configurations and application builds.
The open source Chef community features tens of thousands of active users, more than 1,000 individual contributors, 175 corporate contributors, and 800 cookbooks, providing a rich ecosystem of support for AWS customers looking to make the most of their investment in the cloud.
Opscode's pioneering software, Chef, is an open-source systems integration framework built specifically for automating at scale. No matter how complex the realities of business, Chef makes it easy to deploy servers and scale applications throughout an entire infrastructure. Through a combination of configuration management and service-oriented architectures, Chef makes it easy to create an elegant, fully automated infrastructure while simplifying systems management. Chef is available as an open source download, a SaaS subscription, or as software installed behind the user's firewall.
Opscode is the leader in infrastructure automation. Opscode helps companies of all sizes develop fully automated server infrastructures that scale easily and predictably; can be quickly rebuilt in any environment; and save developers and systems engineers time and money. Opscode's team is comprised of web infrastructure experts responsible for building and operating some of the world's largest websites and cloud computing platforms.
