Achieving Infrastructure Portability with Chef - Matt Ray, Opscode

Deploying to the cloud has made it easy to run large numbers of servers, but users may become dissatisfied with their particular cloud platform for reasons such as price, support and performance. There are a number of vendor lock-ins to avoid, this talk will discuss how to do so with the open source configuration management and infrastructure automation platform Chef. Chef makes it easy to deploy to nearly every public and private cloud platform as well as virtualized and physical servers. Chef may also be used to deploy cloud infrastructures such as OpenStack, Eucalyptus or CloudStack. By abstracting away the platform, infrastructure becomes portable and you are free to deploy wherever necessary.

This talk is intended for sysadmins and developers familiar with the concepts behind managing applications and infrastructure in the cloud, without diving too deeply into technical specifics.
