Message Bus, a pioneer of cloud-based infrastructure for email hosting, mobile and social messaging, recently selected Opscode Hosted Chef to automate the industry’s first cloud-native, multi-channel messaging application. This offering will enable full stack automation across an entire network in less than a month.
"Hosted Chef has abstracted management to a few lines of code, taking months of manual work and condensing it to a few weeks," said Ken Cheney, president, Message Bus, in a statement. "It's an ideal tool for our environment because it automates away risk and ensures consistency across everything from server configurations to application development."
Purpose built in the cloud, the Message Bus Global Delivery Network allows businesses of all sizes to easily send e-mails and other message types without the cost and complexity of multiple messaging servers.
In order to power this solution, the email hosting provider used a unique infrastructure that is capable of managing dynamic workloads, which scale on-demand across multiple cloud providers including Joyent, Amazon Web Services (News - Alert), and Rackspace cloud services.
When leveraging Hosted Chef, the DevOps team of Message Bus will now be able to automate the company's entire compute stack in less than one month's time, instead of six months or more. This will help it to further eliminate almost all manual management and create the foundation for its robust messaging solution.
"From compute to storage to networking, the enterprise shift to scale-out continues to accelerate," added Adam Jacob, chief customer officer, Opscode. "Now, Message Bus is taking the lead in moving messaging to the cloud, leveraging multiple cloud providers combined with Hosted Chef to enable cross-channel communications via email, social and mobile at scale, and without the cost, complexity and personnel necessary to maintain complicated messaging infrastructure hardware."
In related email hosting news, recently Message Bus released Discover, a complimentary new reporting service that offers brands increased visibility into e-mail senders that may be abusing their domain name for illicit or unauthorized purposes.
