IT cos who follow the DevOps philosophy of application and infrastructure management have Chef in their kitty for sure. Chef is an automation platform that transforms infrastructure into code. Chef enables conversion of infrastructure into code and helps manage conﬁgurations, put them together in recipes, track it like source code and conﬁgure your servers.
How Chef works:
The following diagram shows the relationships between the various elements of Chef - the nodes, the server, and the workstations. These elements work together to provide the chef-client the information and instruction that it needs so that it can do its job.
Chef comprises of three main elements: a server, one (or more) nodes, and at least one workstation.
Cookbooks are also a very important element and are treated as a separate component (alongside the server, nodes, and the workstation) across any documentation. In general, cookbooks are authored and managed from the workstation, moved to the server, and then are pulled down to nodes by the chef-client during each chef-client run.
