Pivotal System Administration Modules and Plugins

Pivotal provides the following system administration tools free for your use to support Application Fabric products.

Chef Cookbooks

Chef is a systems management tool used to streamline the task of configuring and deploying a company’s servers and applications in a physical, virtual, or cloud location. Cookbooks define scenarios such as application installation and configuration, and contain the components required to support that scenario.

The cookbooks are available in a public GitHub repository located at https://github.com/pivotal/app-manage/tree/master/chef-repo. See the provided README for any usage notes.
