Chef 11 in production


#1

Hello.

I am new in a Chef’s community. Does anyone use already Chef 11.x in
production? Is it stable for production?

Thank you.


#2

Yes, it’s used widely in Production :slight_smile:

Yes.

Cycle Computing was an early adopter of Chef 11:

As well as Facebook:

And those were a couple of months ago. As John noted, it is in
production all over the place now.

We haven’t formally discussed this at work, but I think our upgrade plan
will look something like this:

Once we get our mitts on the equivalent Private Chef version and install it
in testing, we’ll get people to test their cookbooks off the test endpoint.
(We’re looking forward to it, though – knife-lastrun bombed out our older
Chef 10.x server through some bizarre bug that had nodes running
many node.save()s
per Chef run and freaked out Solr. We’re hoping this goes away once the
back-end switches to Postgres – knife-lastrun’s nice to have, IMO.) With
the new version on our test endpoint, we can run our repos through our test
framework until they all turn green again. Then we’ll know we’re ready to
roll it out to our thousands of production nodes…
