Development project for the latest Chef version: Chef - Infrastructure automation for the masses
Development project for the latest Chef version. In our approach to make Chef a part of openSUSE, the development of the Chef 11 core packages now happens mostly in the appropriate project, devel:languages:erlang.
Chef is an open source systems integration framework built to bring the benefits of configuration management to your entire infrastructure. You write source code to describe how you want each part of your infrastructure to be built, then apply those descriptions to your servers. The result is a fully automated infrastructure: when a new server comes on line, the only thing you have to do is tell Chef what role it should play in your architecture.
