Chef training in Calgary

Chef is a powerful automation platform that transforms infrastructure into code. Whether you?re operating in the cloud, on-premises, or in a hybrid environment, Chef automates how infrastructure is configured, deployed, and managed across your network, no matter its size.Chef consists of three main components: Chef Workstations, Servers, and Nodes.Chef workstation is the location where users interact with Chef. With Chef Workstation, users can author and test cookbooks using tools such as Test Kitchen and interact with the Chef server using the knife and Chef command line tools.Chef nodes also called Chef Client Nodesare the machines that are managed by Chef. The Chef client is installed on each node and is used to configure the node to its desired state.Chef server acts as a hub for configuration data. Chef server stores cookbooks, the policies that are applied to nodes, and metadata that describes each registered node that is being managed by Chef. Nodes use the Chef client to ask the Chef server for configuration details, such as recipes, templates, and file distributions.
