Opscode Announces Commercial Open-Source Platform
June 23, 2010
Opscode, Inc., has recently announced a beta release of the Opscode Platform for hosted configuration management service. According to the company in its recent news release, the Opscode Platform makes it easier than ever to create new servers on demand, and the popular open-source configuration management tool Chef even more powerful and easy to use.
"With the advent of cloud computing and virtualization, it is easier than ever to create new servers on demand. Very quickly, a bottleneck has developed around the configuration management layer, where files are written and packages are installed as new server infrastructure is built and maintained. Chef and the Opscode Platform allow developers and systems engineers to fully automate their infrastructures with re-usable code, and without having to build or maintain systems management tools."
