DevOps Tools Ansible and Chef Provide ProfitBricks Cloud Infrastructure Users More Automation Options

Cloud Provider Adds to Its Growing List of Tools to Make Cloud Infrastructure Painless for DevOps Practitioners

SAN ANTONIO, TX--(Marketwired - Aug 18, 2015) - DevOps tools like Ansible and Chef have been leading the movement for DevOps automation. That's why ProfitBricks, the leading provider of painless cloud infrastructure, is adding support for Ansible and Chef. The launch of these tool kits further demonstrates ProfitBricks commitment to supporting developers and operations professionals in their push to implement DevOps principles for their infrastructure environments.

Ansible is a platform for configuring and managing data center infrastructure. It combines multi-node software deployment, ad-hoc task execution and configuration management. Ansible's agentless configuration management software is rapidly gaining in popularity by DevOps professionals as they use its playbooks functionality to automate cloud infrastructure.

Chef is one of the leading configuration management tools that DevOps professionals use to create system configuration "recipes." Written in the popular Ruby language, Chef makes it simple to manage complex infrastructure and the applications running on it.

Documentation and links to the GitHub repositories for the ProfitBricks integration can be found in the DevOps Central community alongside the ProfitBricks REST API and documentation for the support of a number of multi-cloud libraries and SDKs for Python, Ruby, .NET, Node.js, Go and Java.

"ProfitBricks has been leveraging DevOps automation in-house for a long time and is leading the way to ensure that the cloud can be configured in any way and automated using a team's favorite tools," added Achim Weiss, CEO and co-founder at ProfitBricks. "Ansible and Chef are two of the leading configuration management systems and it's our goal to make the transition to Cloud Computing painless for developers, operations and/or DevOps professionals."
