The infrastructure required to develop and host websites and web-based applications has grown in scale and complexity.
Managing unpredictable spikes in demand, dealing with service attacks, deploying new and updated applications, and coping
with high volume are just a few of the web-related challenges facing IT teams today. Without a fully-automated infrastructure,
companies can find it difficult to keep pace with demand.
Scale-out web operations involve the process of automating web infrastructure to deploy new and changing services in a
cost-effective manner, while meeting peak demand with no downtime or interruptions in service.
Opscode Chef enables web teams to automate the infrastructure powering their websites. Automated infrastructure
makes it easier for high-volume websites to dynamically provision and de-provision infrastructure on demand to keep
up with volatile peaks in traffic. It also enables new services or features to be deployed and updated more frequently
with lower risk of downtime. An automated web infrastructure frees up time for your IT staff to focus on innovation
and growth rather than routine administration.

Key Features Enabling Scale-Out Web Operations
“We see peaks of traffic particularly when new games are announced or there are
video game expos, like E3. During these times, our traffic will dramatically peak.
We used to have to combat that by hand-building web servers to deal with that
capacity a month or so in advance. With Chef, we’ll be able to grow that pool in an
organic way.”
- Ryan Creasey, Principal Systems Engineer, IGN
“It is a business imperative of Rhapsody to deliver a seamless music
experience to our subscriber base and requires that we manage nearly
300 different application server configurations in order to stream a music
catalog of more than 11 million songs to dozens of different devices.
Utilizing the Opscode platform has turned our greatest operational
challenge into an operational advantage.”
- Paul Vandegrift, Director of Vendor and Partner Management, Rhapsody
“Prior to Opscode we were working off an old school managed hosting system. As
we made the decision to begin leveraging Amazon Web Services, we realized we
needed a solution that would not only allow us to automate our infrastructure and
scale our business, but also enable us to take advantage of the elasticity that
Amazon Web Services provides.”
- Grant Rodgers, Software Development, GoTime
