Chef Enterprise Subscription

Supported software distributions built for your mission-critical environments


At Chef, we believe the best software is built in collaboration with those who use it.

All Chef code is built in the open, transparently, where community-driven innovation takes place. Chef’s enterprise-ready distributions are built from the same open source code and supported by Chef.

Powerful Insights

Chef collects and visualizes configuration and compliance details for every datacenter, cloud provider, and environment in your organization. Integrations with tools like ServiceNow and Slack ensure this data is available wherever you need it, whenever you need it.


Chef’s definitely been a very valued and trusted partner, committed to our success at Alaska Airlines. That’s something that hasn’t changed since our first interaction and something that really helps us succeed as a technology company to take our offering to the next level.
