Using Chef to Customize Multi-Node Cloud Foundry Deployments

by September 29, 2011

A key aspect of Cloud Foundry open PaaS is the ability to run everywhere using open-source tools that developers and operations can review and modify to suit their needs.  Today we are releasing a simplified scheme for provisioning Cloud Foundry multi-node environments.  By combing the ease-of-use of Chef recipes and the open architecture of Cloud Foundry, developers,  admins and “DevOps” are now able to easily and consistently provision a customized multi-node Cloud Foundry environment that will suit their particular requirements.

Chef is a well-known open-source configuration manager that is used to install and configure software packages in a repeatable way.
