CHICAGO, April 22, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- 10th Magnitude, a Chicago-based cloud services firm, is among the first companies named to the new Chef Certified Partner program. Ken Cheney, Chef's Vice President of Business Development, announced the Certified Partner designation and named the seven professional services companies that had qualified at Chef's annual conference, ChefConf, in Santa Clara earlier this month.
Chef, a tool that enables IT infrastructure automation, facilitates the practice of DevOps (collaboration between development and operations teams) across organizations. 10th Magnitude has been using Chef since 2013 and leads the industry in deploying Chef on Microsoft's Azure cloud platform. They presented a customer success story at ChefConf detailing their work for ZS Associates.
Microsoft recently announced that they are using Chef to automate on Azure. "Microsoft's decision signals that Chef is the best automation tool for their platform," says Alex Brown, 10th Magnitude CEO. "It emphasizes the fit between Chef's capabilities and Azure's features that we have implemented in multiple successful customer engagements."
"10th Magnitude has been a great partner for our joint customers deploying DevOps and Azure, and we are looking forward to all the new engagements using Chef on Azure," says Chef's Cheney. "We look for the most innovative and experienced Chef implementation teams to partner with, and having 10th Magnitude in the first group of Chef Certified partners was a no brainer."
10th Magnitude achieved Chef Certified Partnership by completing an extensive technical skills evaluation. As both a Microsoft National Solution Provider Partner with Gold Cloud Platform status and a Chef Certified Partner, 10th Magnitude is uniquely positioned to help customers realize value by implementing Chef on Azure.
