Opscode's Commercial Customer Base Surges to Hundreds
Chef-Based Solutions for Cloud Infrastructure Automation

Opscode, a provider of cloud infrastructure automation, on Monday announced that,, EDO Interactive, LAN Airlines, Marshall University and SolutionSet are among a rapidly growing base of companies using Opscode's Hosted Chef and Private Chef to enable rapid deployment of new infrastructure and applications, while significantly reducing IT costs and complexity.

These customers, which range from Fortune 500 enterprises to small-to-medium sized businesses (SMB's) spanning a broad range of industries, are turning to Opscode to automate their IT infrastructure amidst rapid adoption of scale-out IT, including virtualization and cloud computing.

"As we enter the era of cloud computing, it is critical that we solve for the skills and tools gap created by the rapid and unabated proliferation of IT complexity," said Mitch Hill, CEO, Opscode. "Opscode Chef bridges that gap by enabling IT with the tools and skills necessary to effectively build and manage next-generation IT infrastructure. Today, we're already seeing significant enterprise traction for our commercial Chef products, with some of the world's leading companies using Chef to gain business agility and competitive advantage."

"Private Chef makes life much easier for our developers and operations staff as they work to build, test and implement new features and applications," said John Esser, director of software process and agile development, "Private Chef enables our IT teams to easily deploy new offerings and rapidly scale applications so our subscribers can trace their family roots by accessing the billions of genealogical records and millions of family trees from around the globe."

"Opscode is among a select group of providers that enable enterprises to automate infrastructure in the era of cloud computing," said Jay Lyman, senior analyst, 451 Research. "The ability of its Private Chef software to manage and automate complex, large-scale infrastructure can help transform the way enterprises run their IT operations and overall business with added efficiency and effectiveness."

Accelerating Momentum Amid IT Transformation

With hundreds of customers across a broad range of industries, Opscode's commercial Chef-based solutions continue to achieve significant traction among leading-edge businesses. The complexity created by widespread adoption of scale-out technologies is a problem faced by organizations both large and small, causing businesses of all types – from multinational airlines to boutique digital marketing firms – to turn to Hosted Chef and Private Chef to automate away IT complexity. In addition, the open source Chef community has also experienced dramatic growth in the past 12 months:

  • Market adoption of Opscode's open source Chef product has grown 10X since September 2010, and currently stands at more than 800,000 known downloads worldwide.
  • Opscode's community site grew to over 13,000 registered users in 2011, more than doubling since 2010, and producing nearly 400 community cookbooks for everything from Apache to Zabbix.
  • Over 500 individuals and 100 organizations are actively contributing to open source Chef on a regularly basis, also more than doubling from 2010, and providing a rich ecosystem of content for Chef users.

As scale-out technologies continue to transform enterprise IT, this shift is creating significant complexity well beyond the capabilities of current IT skills. To address this problem and foster new skill sets and deliver advanced tools for solving IT complexity, Opscode will be hosting #ChefConf, its inaugural user conference, May 15-17, in San Francisco. Targeted at best practices in infrastructure automation and DevOps, #ChefConf 2012 will deliver three days of technical sessions, workshops, training and keynotes designed to help businesses maximize the value of their IT investment and accelerate the speed of business.

Through a combination of configuration management and service-oriented architectures, Chef®, Hosted Chef® and Private Chef® make it easy to create an elegant, fully automated infrastructure while simplifying systems management.
