We'll cover the following

Question 49

The systems administrators in a company currently use Chef for configuration management of on-premise servers. Which AWS service can a solutions architect use that will provide a fully-managed configuration management service that will enable the use of existing Chef cookbooks?

  1. Elastic Beanstalk
  2. CloudFormation
  3. OpsWorks for Chef Automate
  4. Opsworks Stacks

Correct Answer: 3

Explanation: AWS OpsWorks is a configuration management service that provides managed instances of Chef and Puppet. AWS OpsWorks for Chef Automate is a fully-managed configuration management service that hosts Chef Automate, a suite of automation tools from Chef for configuration management, compliance and security, and continuous deployment. OpsWorks for Chef Automate is completely compatible with tooling and cookbooks from the Chef community and automatically registers new nodes with your Chef server.

INCORRECT:Elastic Beanstalk” is incorrect. AWS Elastic Beanstalk is not able to build infrastructure using Chef cookbooks.

INCORRECT:CloudFormation” is incorrect. AWS CloudFormation is not able to build infrastructure using Chef cookbooks.

CORRECT:OpsWorks for Chef Automate” is the correct answer.

INCORRECT:Opsworks Stacks” is incorrect. AWS OpsWorks Stacks lets you manage applications and servers on AWS and on-premises and uses Chef Solo. The question does not require the managed solution on AWS to manage on-premises resources, just to use existing cookbooks, so this is not the preferred solution.
