It may be taking my life in my hands, especially as I’m known to
favour Puppet, but I thought I’d share this blog post with you:
The subtitle is ‘10 reasons why Puppet wins’, but I should really add
’…for now’. The 10 areas that I’ve mentioned are things which I
really think Chef could make progress in, and make it a more
compelling choice for devs and sysadmins looking at introducing
configuration management. I’m a pragmatist, not a dogmatist, and while
I think Puppet is still on top, I’m happy to see alternatives
springing up and innovation happening. Monopolies are generally bad,
at least for their customers.
I’d be very interested to get your comments, especially if you are an
enthusiastic Chef fan and want to say why.
