SEATTLE, Wash – June 14, 2011 — Opscode, Inc., the leader in cloud infrastructure automation, today at the O'Reilly Velocity Conference in Santa Clara, Calif., announced its latest infrastructure automation solution, Opscode Private Chef™ (OPC). The Private Chef appliance provides Opscode Hosted Chef's™ highly available, dynamically scalable, fully managed and supported automation environment behind the corporate firewall.
"Traditional systems management solutions come with a very high operating burden – simply learning to manage the infrastructure that manages your infrastructure is a daunting investment of both capital and time, often involving lengthy consulting engagements," said Adam Jacob, co-founder and chief product officer of Opscode. "Private Chef packages all of Opscode's operating expertise in running this critical business function and delivers this right into the enterprise data-center, in a highly available, custom built hardware appliance."
"New methods of IT automation are providing IT staff with tools that enable them to deliver applications at a speed that matches the rapid pace of business demands," said Michael Cote, analyst at RedMonk. "I like these new approaches like Opscode's because they seek to fundamentally change, and thus improve, the way IT is managed rather than just incrementally speeding up older approaches. Early adopters looking to get an edge in IT-led innovation will appreciate one of the few toe-holds of differentiation left in today's highly competitive world."
Opscode's Private Chef is purpose-built to meet enterprise datacenter requirements, packaging together all of Opscode's deep expertise in running the world's largest hosted automation platform – and delivering it as an appliance- based managed service behind the enterprise firewall.
