Guests - Julian Dunn


Chatroom Buzz-

<13Stuwee> ## If DSC and Chef are simular and I haven't used either, why would I learn Chef over DSC at this point?

<0halr9000> ## tell us more about configuration management of some "non-traditional" nodes like the network and storage hardware that you mentioned earlier

<13Stuwee> ## Do you use PSH within Chef?

<13Stuwee> ## please igonre if already asked.  Does it work with clients or just servers. Does it have a client install piece?

<13Stuwee> ## what about "what clients are supported", XP, Win7 Server 2003 etc...

<0organicit> ##As an enterprise why should I consider Chef over Puppet.  Sorry if this has been addressed

<13Stuwee> ## what about cost?

<13Stuwee> ## if you have a run list and one thing fails, how is the admin notified that it failed, how easy is it to recover?

<13Stuwee> ## how many cookbooks exist today and how ofter do new ones get added/updated?

<13Stuwee> ## if the cookbooks are community created/driven, how is the quality of the cookbook verified?  Does anyone validate the cookbook?

<13Stuwee> ## how long has Chef been "in the business".  In other words can I trust it to be around for the long term in light of DSC?

<13Stuwee> ## does it maintain a "state" or is it primarly used for installation of software?

<13Stuwee> ## wait wait.... just kidding
