Overview of this book

The DevOps culture is growing at a massive rate, as many organizations are adopting it. However, implementing it for web applications is one of the biggest challenges experienced by many developers and admins, which this book will help you overcome using various tools, such as Chef, Docker, and Jenkins. On the basis of the functionality of these tools, the book is divided into three parts. The first part shows you how to use Jenkins 2.0 for Continuous Integration of a sample JEE application. The second part explains the Chef configuration management tool, and provides an overview of Docker containers, resource provisioning in cloud environments using Chef, and Configuration Management in a cloud environment. The third part explores Continuous Delivery and Continuous Deployment in AWS, Microsoft Azure, and Docker, all using Jenkins 2.0. This book combines the skills of both web application deployment and system configuration as each chapter contains one or more practical hands-on projects. You will be exposed to real-world project scenarios that are progressively presented from easy to complex solutions. We will teach you concepts such as hosting web applications, configuring a runtime environment, monitoring and hosting on various cloud platforms, and managing them. This book will show you how to essentially host and manage web applications along with Continuous Integration, Cloud Computing, Configuration Management, Continuous Monitoring, Continuous Delivery, and Deployment.

Chef and cloud provisioning

Chef is not only used for setting up runtime environments or configuration management, but it is also used for resource provisioning in cloud environments. It supports cloud service providers such as Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services, VMware, OpenStack, HP Cloud, and Google Compute Engine. Chef provides more flexibility to the concept of infrastructure as a code and brings configuration management into the picture as well. Knife plugins are used to manage or use different cloud service providers. With knife plugins, it is easier to provision and deprovision resources along with controlled and centralized configuration management. In this chapter we will focus on infrastructure provisioning in Cloud environment and setting up runtime environment as shown in below diagram:

We will specifically focus on infrastructure provisioning in a cloud environment and setting up a runtime environment with a configuration management tool:
