Chef Provisioning on Azure

Chef as a one stop solution on Azure

I managed to talk about Provisioning with Chef on ChefConf2019. Meeting nice peoples from various countries which build a vibrant Community around Chef was a lot of fun!


I talked about our implementation using Chef as a One-Stop Solution on Microsoft Azure.

  • Use use Chef Cookbooks to provision infrastructure, deploy and configure software
    • Thogh it is quite uncommon to use Chef to provision infrastructure we prefer this over using other tools
  • Use Azure Pipelines for CI/CD to automate provisioning
  • Do compliance testing with Inspec and use Chef Automate to represent the results

Here are the slides on Slideshare a shot from the talk in Seattle and an audio recording of my talk:
