Video Series: Intro to AWS OpsWorks for Chef Automate

This week we’re pleased to release a new video series, Intro to AWS OpsWorks for Chef Automate. In this playlist, we provide a concise overview of OpsWorks for Chef Automate, a fully-managed offering of the Chef Automate platform on Amazon Web Services, along with practical usage examples so you can follow along in your own environment.

Below you’ll find the first video in the series, which will walk you through the Chef Automate platform itself, and the process for getting spun up in OpsWorks. From there, part 2 will cover compliance audits, and show you how you can start assessing and remediating issues quickly. Finally, part 3 details bootstrapping systems for continuous automation, providing the means to detect, correct, and automate everything you manage consistently.
