SEATTLE, Sept. 19, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Opscode, Inc., the leader in cloud infrastructure automation, today announced that Full 360 has successfully implemented Opscode Hosted Chef to manage hosting BI environments for their customers.

Full 360 is a systems integrator and consultancy with a broad experience in business intelligence (BI), data warehousing and performance management solutions. Hosted Chef saves Full 360 significant time and resources associated with its next generation BI projects.

Full 360 builds some of the largest BI platforms in the world, and has traditionally faced long deployment times due to numerous technology obstacles surrounding BI implementation. Most notable are the time and resources required to build an underlying data warehouse, procuring hardware, creating server infrastructure, and installing, configuring, deploying and maintaining BI applications – as well as the underlying database management system. To improve the efficiency of managing the entire process, Full 360 needed a framework that would allow it to reduce the time and resources needed to manage hosting BI environments for its customers.

Full 360 developed a next generation platform for BI – the elasticBI Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) using Hosted Chef, along with Jaspersoft, an open source BI application; Vertica, the market-leading columnar analytic database; and the Amazon Web Services cloud.

With Opscode Hosted Chef, Full 360 has a fully automated cloud infrastructure and can scale easily, saving considerable time and resources.

"We are thrilled with the results and the capabilities that Hosted Chef has given us," said Jeremy Winters, lead architect and database and warehouse designer for Full 360. "It saves me time every day, and recently the solution saved my life in a high-priority implementation."

"Opscode is proud to be a part of Full 360's innovative, next-generation BI solution," said Adam Jacob, chief product officer for Opscode. "We fully believe that once technology obstacles are resolved, a business can spend more time and energy on innovation. Full 360 is poised for success as the BI and data warehousing industry transforms, and we are excited to see where it leads in the future."
