Post-Acquisition, Progress Polishes Chef for Enterprise DevOps, Compliance

Since its $220 million buyout of Chef earlier this month, Progress plans to use the company’s technology to address the growing need for bringing DevOps to the enterprise. It is also working to make adoption and scaling of Chef itself easier.

Since its $220 million buyout of Chef earlier this month, Progress plans to use the company’s technology to address the growing need for bringing DevOps to the enterprise. It is also working to make adoption and scaling of Chef itself easier.

Chef users shouldn’t expect anything to change, according to Sundar Subramanian, senior vice president and general manager at Progress, who now heads Chef.

“We believe that the way Chef has worked and grown, and the way it interacts with the community should be preserved. And at least for a couple of years, we will not try to do integrations to other products or things like that. Wherever there is a natural evolution of customers who want to get a couple of our products together with Chef, we will, of course, enable that for them. But Chef continues to be a separate business unit in Progress,” he said.

“We have committed to working with our open source community and customers, every Chef developer. Whatever they are doing today in the open source world will continue to be the same on contributions, engagement, all of that is exactly the same. We just want to make sure that we can fuel this rocket up,” he said.

Chef’s latest launches include:

  • Chef Infrastructure Management, built atop its configuration-management tool Infra and Automate DevOps dashboard offerings to provide an easier, secure way to scale.
  • Chef App Delivery, built atop its packaging technology Habitat, Infra and Automate. It offers enhanced access management, deeper integration among tools plus new documentation, resources and training.
  • Compliance Enhancements and Premium Content — A new content delivery service provides cloud-based access to a growing library of curated, CIS-certified premium content for compliance scanning and remediation. With Cloud Target Scanning, you can scan an extensive set of cloud resources across all major public cloud providers.
  • “Learn Chef” Skills Validation Program provides validation of online course and exam completion, a fast track to staff training.
