Automating Manual Server and VM Deployments, Creating an Internal Chef Community

Automating manual Server and VM deployments.

Download Case Study


Before Chef, the process for provisioning a Linux server or a virtual machine was manual, time-consuming, and difficult to scale effectively. Because there was no programmatic way to apply or validate server configurations, setup tasks were manual and error-prone, and verification was rudimentary.


Deploy Chef and develop cookbooks to automate provisioning, implementing Chef InSpec to test and ensure the efficacy of cookbooks as they are developed.


  • Danske Bank was able to remove the manual and time-consuming process of multiple handoffs for provisioning and scaling Linux servers, to using Chef as easy as the push of a button
  • They translated their provisioning and scale requirements into executable code removing the manual processes into repeatable, automated workflows
  • Using Chef InSpec they codified standard requirements and execute automated tests against standards, catching any deviations immediately and preventing costly rework
