Chef Initial Setup

Mike Silva
Senior Operations Engineer at a retailer with 10,001+ employees
The integration and configuration of the product in our AWS environment was functional at the time. I didn't get to do the migration after the production environment. However, everything up until then, we had handled in our lower environments. It seemed to work as described and within the confines of what we were dealing with, and it was functional for us. I just never got to work with it in the production realm. View full review »

Setting up initially was quite straightforward. What was challenging was when our platforms kept changing. We had an on-premise environment and we evolved to the cloud world. Then there was AWS and Azure. We keep adding and expanding. Maybe we haven't thought much about our architecture - that's been through some changes. And maybe the horizontal capabilities I was talking about earlier, the scalability might be another aspect. But the initial setup itself was quite straightforward. View full review »

The integration and configuration were pretty straight forward. We have automated most of our department processes with Chef. Therefore, whenever there is a new software release ready, we can automatically use Chef to publish it to production. It is very easy to use. We need to upgrade Chef and Ansible. View full review »

The integration and configuration are pretty good in the AWS environment. The problems are usually on our side, not on AWS' side. View full review »

The integration and configuration in our AWS environment is very good. It works well with most operation management systems, and where it doesn't, we upgrade the system. View full review »

It's a really easy product in AWS. It's easy to teach and easy to understand. View full review »
