Have you ever wondered that what is the capability of Azure when you are using open source tools? Azure works great when using those products such as ‘Chef’.
So azure interfere with chef and it will be the most valuable moment in chef’s time. It is that much easy and user friendly
Microsoft has worked hard to make the partnership and collaboration with Chef to deliver automation tools that help you with cloud adoption. Now you can use chef directly in Azure Cloud Shell, as well as the new Chef Developer Hub in Azure Docs.
As everyone know there are number of tools to do the automation like Ansible and Terraform that are already available. Chef delivers the new feature called Chef Inspec and pre-installed and ready to use for every Azure user in the Azure Cloud Shell.
This makes azure super simple and no installation or pre configuration needed.
Microsoft has announced Chef Developer Hub. as I mentioned, chef is an open source software. Both together works great when it comes to implementing solutions. However, for beginners and first starters there is a quick tutorial and a guide to go through. Once done you are an expert. Head over to chef developer hub GitHub and try it out.
Habitat support for AKS and ACR
Chef announced new integrations for Habitat, with fully managed container registry and Kubernetes services, Azure Container Registry (ACR) and Azure Kubernetes Services (AKS).
Users can deploy to ACR directly using these features that Microsoft has introduced. Also the users can use ACR to publish directly from Habitat builder service. This will be a reliable chain of workflow and can simultaneously push the code to GitHub and same time, deploy it to AKS as a complete integration and deployment.
