“Most of our clients use Chef to deploy new code in an automated fashion. We also use it to update existing configurations and push those changes in an automated fashion to large groups of servers. Having the ability to deploy simple or full system changes out to a large group of servers with little human interaction has been a game changer for our company, allowing us to deploy at scale and grow our infrastructure as our company grows.”

“With Chef, we are able to manage nodes in a new way. Our clients get insight into the health, configuration and compliance of their system on a single platform. Also, since everything is in code, the ways to customize cookbooks, InSpec profiles and tailor policy for each node are limitless.”

 - Stephanie L., Software Engineer at a small business 

“We have used Chef for 10+ years as our configuration management tool. The Chef Infra has been robust and provided a stable platform for us to develop against. The out of the box functionality solves many of our use cases and the Chef DSL provides enough extensibility that we can create functionality for our specific use cases.” 

 - Chef user from a Healthcare Company with more than 1000 employees 

“Progress Chef is an amazing tool for DevOps automation. The ease with which we can configure the instructions using recipes and cookbooks is the best feature. It is implemented using Ruby language which is super easy to understand and use as well.” 

 - Sarthak S., Software Deployment Engineer 2 at an Enterprise company with more than 1000 employees
