New Chef Infrastructure Management, Chef App Delivery, Chef Premium Content and ‘Learn Chef’ skills validation program makes portfolio easier to adopt and scale for both new and experienced users
“Global enterprises need application automation solutions that enable them to apply a technology-agnostic and modular approach to defining, packaging and delivering application and infrastructure across on-prem, hybrid and cloud environments,” said
The Chef® DevSecOps portfolio bridges silos in global enterprises, enabling application, DevOps and security teams to work closely together to define everything--including compliance policies, infrastructure, and application delivery requirements--as code. Providing a common DevSecOps language that can be shared, scaled, and automated to improve the software development lifecycle helps teams shift left to accelerate their digital transformations and truly embrace the power of the cloud.
New innovations include:
- Chef Infrastructure Management: Built atop Chef® Infra® and Chef® Automate™, this eases secure infrastructure management at scale while delivering actionable insights to DevSecOps professionals. Chef Infrastructure Management provides performance improvements, simpler deployment, easier manageability and helps organizations reduce upgrade times from weeks to hours.
- Chef App Delivery: Built atop Chef® Habitat®, Chef Infra and Chef Automate, this enables users to define, package and deliver applications faster. Enhanced access management and deeper integration among tools, along with new documentation, resources, and training, enables users to deploy applications to production 90% faster and reduce app maintenance overhead by 80%.
- Compliance Enhancements and Chef Premium Content: Cloud Target Scanning enables users to easily scan an extensive set of cloud resources across all major public cloud providers. A new content delivery service provides cloud-based access to a growing library of curated, CIS-certified, up-to-date Chef Premium Content for compliance scanning and remediation.
- ‘Learn Chef’ Skills Validation Program: Built on the ‘Learn Chef’ platform and the OpenBadges Standard, this program provides validation levels based on online course and exam completion. It enhances the Chef partner program by providing a fast track to staff training and helps customers capture value faster through efficient, meaningful, validated skill-building tracks.
