Review of Chef

“Server configuration automation and reporting with interface options.”

Overallgets the job done, medium ramp-up time to learn the syntax, plenty of features to make it worthwhile to use.
Proschef offers a CLI and GUI to report on fleets of deployed assets and configurations assigned to them.
Consgetting at individual attributes and hosts can be cumbersome to parse from the command output.

Review of Chef

“A robust platform for devops”

OverallI use chef to automate the process of installing and configuring middleware like Apache httpd, Jboss EAP, etc. with full proficiency in terms of time and quality.
ProsChef is a powerful platform which, once setup, permits to achieve a big efficiency on installation and configuration of complex middleware and software components, as well on deploying artefacts.
ConsLack of full retro compatibility when switching to new versions of software. Long learning curve is also a con.

Review of Chef

“A tool for automation of complete infrastructure.”

OverallChef is one of the best and simplest tool for configuration management and automation for code infrastructures. Chef made the deployment of 500+ hybrid environment of different projects which makes it simple with the help of automation.
ProsChef is a complete automation tool which help us to build the efficient infrastructure of code. It also helps to simplify the configuration management, monitoring and deployment. The build in templates for cloud and on-premises help to setup the configuration. Integration with different cloud and OS make it dynamic to flexible. Chef is one of the best and easiest tool for configuration management. The event feed provide the one stop notification for our all configurations. The customized compliance help to generate the reports for audits.
ConsChef needs to provide the simple wizards to setup the master & client nodes for different environment. Documentation search engine should be more enhanced. Chef should also come with the PUSH configuration as it is always recommended in such case when our infrastructure is scaling to frequently.
