Watch: Understanding the Chef Server

On June 8th, Irving Popovetsky, Principal Customer Architect and Stephen Delano, Principal Engineer, presented a live webinar, “Understanding the Chef Server.”

Watch the recording below for an overview of how it’s designed, how it’s packaged, and general advice on operating the Chef server at scale (monitoring, troubleshooting, etc). Irving and Stephen talk about each of the Chef server components and how they fit together. They explain the Omnibus system, which lets you build native packages for different platforms. Finally, they’ll show you a few troubleshooting techniques.

Our goal is to give you the knowledge you need to maintain your own Chef server and to be ready for more challenging problems, such as how to plan for large scale deployments.
