Creating Platform Agnostic Packages with Chef Habitat

Package Your Software Once, Deploy Anywhere

Back to Webinars

One of the dreams of development is to build a software package once, and be able to deploy it anywhere. With current open source projects, this dream is closer than ever.

With Chef Habitat, you can create software packages that run (almost) anywhere. An application can be run on bare metal, a virtual machine, or in a container, with everything needed to automate that application already built into the package itself. This even works with a mixed infrastructure -- metal for your static compute heavy loads, VMs for your persistent data stores, and ephemeral short-lived containers for applications managed by Kubernetes or other container-scheduling services.

In this webinar, Nell Shamrell-Harrington, Principal Software Development Engineer and Community Engineering Lead at Chef, showcases how to build and deploy these packages with the intelligence to self-organize into topologies (no central orchestrator needed!). Learn how the dream of platform-agnostic and self-organizing packages is fulfilled today, and where it will evolve in the future.
