The
Challenge

The Benefits

The Benefits
Cloud operations team successfully reached their goal by reducing implementation and on-going management time by at least 50%. When a new server is provisioned, Chef agent is installed and corresponding runbook configures all necessary packages based on the server's role and permissions. All server updates and code modifications are performed via Chef without no direct manual interventions. Fun fact, the engagement was delivered ahead of schedule, so the rest of the time was spent to harden and automate security operations.
