Cheezburger Uses Opscode, Inc.'s Hosted Chef Platform
May 6 13
Opscode, Inc. announced that Cheezburger is now utilizing Opscode's Hosted Chef(TM) platform. Hosted Chef automates configuration management and provisioning across the multiple cloud infrastructure as a service (IaaS) providers and physical servers powering Cheezeburger's online humor properties. To power its family of sites, Cheezburger leverages a dynamic cloud infrastructure integrating multiple cloud providers, along with a small cluster of physical servers for memory needs. Using Hosted Chef to automate its hybrid infrastructure, Cheezburger can manage all its IaaS instances from a single point of view, providing maximum system visibility and control. By customizing the Chef Community .NET cookbook, Cheezburger created a code-based blueprint for managing its Windows-based deployments, automating full resource configuration across its entire infrastructure. Hosted Chef provides Cheezburger with a comprehensive solution for configuring its infrastructure, including single command cluster deployments of a load balancer, cache server, and HTTP servers in Microsoft Azure, as well as self-aware configuration between Hosted Chef and system load balancers. By automating configuration across its hybrid infrastructure, Cheezburger can ensure system consistency with minimal risk of error.
