ElasticBox @ ChefConf… Bringing Chef to the Cloud

Chef Conf 2014

Tonight ChefConf 2014 kicks off at the San Francisco Hyatt Regency, and my fellow ¡Elasticos! and I are very excited to have the opportunity to share the vision and reality of ElasticBox with the attendees. We’ll be showcasing how our approach to DevOps allows you to integrate easily and seamlessly with Chef one time regardless of how many different cloud providers you may use. Configure the platform and app with Chef, deploy and manage it with ElasticBox.

Yes, that’s right…there’s no longer a need to rewrite/modify/debug essentially the same Chef scripts over and over and over just to deploy an application on a different cloud service.

Leverage Chef as a Service across All Clouds

On a more technical level, what ElasticBox does is abstract away the need to perform API level integrations on a per provider basis, and this abstraction allows you to leverage Chef uniformly across providers. Furthermore we do this for the entire service/application, not just for individual nodes. ElasticBox allows you to deploy an entire enterprise application holistically using the power of Chef to any cloud provider. You can now essentially leverage Chef scripts as a service!

Deploy Modularized Chef Service Boxes

Now, of course that’s not all ElasticBox does. Our overall mission is to make it as easy as possible to develop, deploy and manage applications on any cloud infrastructure. To do that, we’re pioneering a simplified, modular, service-based application development structure, where fully configured components of application architecture are encapsulated as “Boxes” and made available as a service. Also pretty cool, yeah?

What it boils down to is ElasticBox is making it possible for Dev and Ops to live in peace and harmony. #truestory
