Using Chef, the new all Ruby server infrastructure management system, Nathaniel will guide you through setting up your distributed network architecture in an automated fashion. Currently, Chef is running his distributed cluster of staging, production, and key infrastructure servers using linux flavours of Ubuntu, RHEL, and CentOS in a multi network environment spanning from Amazon’s EC2, 1&1, Rackspace, as well as Slicehost. You will learn not only the fundamental concepts of Chef, but how to practically use it to automate your network infrastructure with installations, version upgrades, centralized user management, as well as deployment strategies to remove the headache of managing as well as scaling clusters of servers in the wild.
