Its nice to have such transparent configuration management tool

4,0 vor 6 Jahren

Kommentare: We made our hardware infrastructure much easier to manage through chef.

Vorteile:

Chef is an open source tool for configuration management, focused on the developer side for its user base. Chef operates as a master-client model, with a separate workstation needed to control the master. It's based in Ruby, with pure Ruby used for most elements you write. The Chef design is transparent and based on following the instructions it's given, which means that you'll have to make sure your instructions are clear.Chef is good for development-focused teams and environments. It's good for enterprises looking for a more mature solution for a heterogeneous environment.

Nachteile:

1. The learning curve is steep if you're not already familiar with Ruby and procedural coding. 2. It's not a simple tool, which can lead to large code bases and complicated environments. 3. Doesn't support push functionality.

DevOps tool to manage application configuration.

5,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: Used it with a large application with multiple modules depending on each other and multiple servers and maintaining the configuration and keep them in sync would have been a really difficult task without the help of Chef.

Vorteile:

The automation capability of Chef makes it very easy to integrate CI/CD pipelines. With a wide range of extensions present for Chef make is compatible with any kind of platform and the developer is able to write cookbooks for managing large numbers of serves and configuration.

Nachteile:

There is no web console UI to update or manage the configurations. Chef is a very powerful tool so it is a resource-intensive tool and the code base is also large so not very suitable for small applications.

Great for building systems the way we want them to be.

4,0 vor 7 Jahren

Vorteile:

The best thing about Chef is that we can force servers to have the files we want on them with the content that we want and make sure that packages are installed/updated without much effort.

Nachteile:

If you decide a file/package should not be placed/installed on a server anymore you have to explicitly state that you want to remove it. Deciding not to install it is not enough. Also, the unit tests have a pretty steep learning curve.

Amazingly powerful configuration management tool

4,0 vor 5 Jahren

Vorteile:

Chef is probably the best solution for enterprise configuration management. The language is very easy to use if you are familiar with Ruby and even if you are not the documentation is very easy to follow.

Nachteile:

It is very resource intensive to perform Chef runs so is not very suited to low capacity server or VPS's. So its more suited to large enterprise where there are sufficient resources available.
