Chef is the Platform for Automating Your Infrastructure on Amazon Web Services

Chef Automate, Chef’s Continuous Automation solution is tightly integrated with Amazon Web Services (AWS). If you’re using AWS now, Chef gives you a single, unified way to automate AWS services and resources. If you’re thinking of using AWS, Chef will help you migrate your workloads at your own pace, and with complete control. Together with AWS, Chef helps customers tackle risk and compliance barriers blocking cloud migration.

DevSecOps for Your AWS Environment

Using modern DevOps, security, and policy-as code principles, securely manage infrastructure configuration and compliance policies at scale. Chef’s native integrations with Azure provide one tool across multi-cloud environments and leverage AWS capabilities.

  • Detect fleet-wide issues and prioritize remediation

Provisioning AWS with Chef

Chef provisioning lets you create nodes and configure them, including Amazon EC2 instances. Rather than bringing up individual nodes, you can use Chef provisioning to describe an entire cluster or fleet. You can build your infrastructure as many times as you want in the cloud, on virtual machines in your data center, or even bare metal. Chef provisioning for AWS includes the most used AWS resources.

For example, you can manage Amazon EC2 instances, Amazon Virtual Private Clouds (VPCs), security groups, IAM roles, and instance profiles. Chef provisioning can also consume IAM roles so that all the components in the stack that have the appropriate IAM profile are provisioned correctly. You can also manage common AWS services such as Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS) and Amazon Route 53.

Chef Infra enables clients to take full advantage of AWS resources across the globe. Clients can use cloud variables like security groups, GEO location, and region to target their Chef configurations, helping to diversify critical workloads and ensure they are properly secured.  


Chef together with Amazon is a great way for companies to make sure that their infrastructure is agile, can scale up and scale down quickly now and stay on top of changes, automate their workflows and release pipelines.
