The first news from today’s AWS Summit in New York sees DevOps automation business Chef, and Amazon Web Services announcing the availability of Chef in the AWS Marketplace.
The service is provided as a 1-Click deployment and should go some way to helping the estimated 25% of Global 2000 organisations who research firm Gartner think will be using DevOps methodology by 2016.
As part of the AWS distribution Chef has distilled the DevOps success patterns of its most innovative customers including Adobe, Ancestry.com, Intuit, Scholastic, the University of Pennsylvania, and many more into the platform.
AWS users will be able to consume Chef at an hourly rate, paying as they scale their AWS resources and will provide a single platform for automating cloud deployments, enabling users to manage their entire infrastructure and migrate workloads between different IT environments.
Chef is available on the AWS marketplace from now https://aws.amazon.com/marketplace/pp/B010OMNV2W/?ref=_ptnr_chef_pr . The first five nodes are free, with prices for subsequent servers per hour and dependent on the server size. As of the autumn Chef will be training users in the UK on the system, those lucky enough to live in the US can start training now at the AWS Lofts locations in San Francisco and New York.
