Product roadmaps for Chef, chef console?


#1

hey guys,

I am new to Chef and very excited about it.

I have to admit that the Puppet recent feature list for its enterprise 2.0
product made me quite envious. I am sure that the Chef team is also working
on exciting stuff but I can’t find a product roadmap page for chef. Is there
something like that buried somewhere?

features i am particularly interested in:

tripwire-like detection of change in system configuration, to detect
intrusions and maintain security compliance
vsphere integration
roadmap for chef web-interface (console)

I am also curious whether opscode is specifically targeting web startups and
newish e-commerce outfits or also interested in the features that make
corporate IT middle managers salivate (read: compliance).

Some of the things Opscode is working on:

  • Improvements to the Search API (bringing back partial search results)
  • Reporting primitives (like everything else in Chef, the API first!)
  • No-Op mode
  • Drastically improved installation and setup (both for the client and
    the Chef Server)

You’ll likely be able to build this sort of functionality with the
reporting primitives we’re talking about.

vsphere integration

We have all sorts of customers, ranging from small web startups to the
Fortune 500, and we love them all equally. :slight_smile: The open source
community contains a huge diversity of folks as well.

Best,

To further accomplish this goal, you could use to set up a system such
as Tripwire or OSSEC that do host-based intrusion detection. Opscode
publishes an ‘ossec’ cookbook:

thanks Adam, that is very helpful

i thought i heard on devops cafe that chef already had noop mode but still
glad it is already on the way.
