CHEF (Software) was conceived by ADAM JACOB as a tool to help his counseling organizations, whose plan of action was to build an end-to-end deployment/server tools. After creating it, Jacob revealed CHEF to Jesse Robbins, who figured out its real potential after running operation at Amazon. And later on, they both went on forming a new company with Joshua Timberman, Barry Steinglass, and Nathen HaneySmith to turn this fantastic concept into a product. CHEF is both the name of organization and configuration management tool specifically written in Erlang and Ruby. It utilizes pure-Ruby, domain-specific language popularly known as a DSL for writing the configuration “recipes” of the system.
CHEF is utilized to streamline the task of maintaining the server of the organization as well as configuring its task and can also integrate with the cloud-based platforms like Rackspace, Google Cloud Platform, SoftLayer, Amazon EC2 and Internap to name a few to automatically provision and configure new devices. Apart from all the things mentioned above, one more thing that makes CHEF a stand out product is that it make sure each and every resource is precisely configured and rectify any resources that are not in the desirable state. Initially, CHEF was used to oversee Linux but with the passage of time, later versions they came up support Microsoft Windows too. Besides, Puppet, CFEngine and Bcfg2; CHEF is one out of these four major configuration management system of LINUX.
