The Chef Supermarket is a publically available repository for community code that can help with building instructions for specific infrastructure.
- [Instructor] Returning back to the infrastructure…we're concerned with building in this class,…we've been talking about adding a load balancer…to our Chef server.…This load balancer is going to allow us…to expand or scale our infrastructure.…When it receives requests from the internet,…it will relay those requests to an available web server.…It's a great way to see how we can actually work…with some more complex cookbooks.…Now what needs to be done to actually set up…this new load balancer?…Well we have to write a cookbook…that's full of the load balancer instructions.…
Here you see that I'm actually going to talk about…using a protocol called haproxy.…Haproxy is an easy way to set up…a software-based load balancer.…Now to run out new load balancer cookbook,…I'll also need a new note,…which you saw me managing in EWS earlier in the class.…But do we really want to reinvent the wheel?…You should understand that there's a lot of code out there…that people have already pulled apart…and turned into community cookbooks.…
