Parse Key Developments

Parse Delivers Complete Mobile App Platform with Chef

Chef(TM) announced that Parse has automated hundreds of Amazon Web Services servers with Enterprise Chef. Parse uses the hosted version of Enterprise Chef and AWS Auto Scaling to manage massive and unpredictable demand for its cloud-based application development services, enabling the company to manage 30-40 different services with only a three-person infrastructure team. Parse has automated the configuration of everything from MySQL to Zookeeper with Enterprise Chef, improving business agility and accelerating the customer feedback loop. Achievements include: Fast Configuration: Zookeeper is an open source application for maintaining configuration information, naming, providing distributed synchronization, and providing group services within IT infrastructure. Traditionally a very complex application, Parse installed Zookeeper on hundreds of AWS servers in less than a day using Enterprise Chef. Response Speed: When unforeseen demand spikes exceed Parse's infrastructure capacity, its IT team spins up batches of new AWS servers with Auto Scaling and lets Chef automate configuration and deployment, bringing fully configured compute capacity online in minutes. Reusable Code: The Chef Community features over 1,000 Cookbooks -- collections of tested, reusable code -- providing the Parse team with repeatable code that saves lots of man-hours.
