core chef does not provide anything to do this. but you can use other tools
to do the orchestration bit (i.e. remote notifications). For example, you
can install serf on the backends and proxy servers. use chef handler for
serf in backends to publish an event when they register, and serf agent
on reverse proxy can invoke a serf handler that listen to this event and
invoke chef run.

I like to know if there is a possibility to tell a node that there is a
new backend node installed.
I like to tell my reverse proxy that chef has installed a new backend
Server and the new backend server should than added in the reverse proxy
Right now, I only find the solution using search functions, but then I
have to wait until the next chef-client run of the reverse proxy.
Can I directly inform the reverse proxy after installing the backen node?
