Duration: 2 Days
With the advent of cloud computing, resource provisioning (launching servers etc.) became really fast while configuration management & managing the fleet of large number of cloud servers still remains a bottleneck for a long time. Chef (previously OpsCode Chef) is an enterprise tool that fills the gap and makes resource management very agile.
This course covers the concepts of DevOps & configuration management tool Chef in specific. As part of this course, you’ll also execute labs with some exercises that’ll give you a good balance of both theory & labs. You’ll learn about the concepts of cookbooks, recipes, roles & attributes. And how to use a central chef-server to manage the configuration while working with large fleet of machines.
