Rule the Cloud – Now w/Google, too.

Brass Tacks:

With our announcement today of integration with Google Compute Engine, yesterday’s news on “Chef for OpenStack”, and previous integration news with Azure and HP Cloud, Opscode Chef is now playing a central role in the best practices for building, deploying and managing public and private clouds across the entire waterfront of cloud providers.

Leveraging Knife command-line plugins, Opscode Chef makes it easy for you to automate and move data between clouds, regardless of which cloud provider you’re using.

How do we do that?

By partnering with every major cloud provider to deliver single command integration for:

– Amazon Web Services
Microsoft Azure
HP Cloud Services
– CloudStack
– Eucalyptus
– VMware vCloud
– OpenStack

*** Full Knife plugin list here.

Why should you care?

Because Chef makes it faster, cheaper and plain better to build, deploy and manage cloud infrastructure, no matter which provider you’re using. But don’t take our word for it. Just look what the good folks at Cycle Computing are doing with Chef at scale w/Amazon, or what cool companies like Decide are doing with Hosted Chef in the cloud.

The best part? [insert you’re own “we’ve only just begun” pun here.]

Rule the Cloud. Really.
