DevOps framework maker Chef has announced that it has raised an additional $40 million in funding, bringing its total to more than $100 million. Key investors included DFJ Growth, Hewlett-Packard Ventures, Battery Ventures, Citi Ventures, DFJ, Ignition Partners, and ScaleVP.
Chef's open source tools are popular with enterprise application development teams that are taking a DevOps approach. Chef CEO Barry Crist said, "The two areas that we're keen to expand over the next 18 months and put more effort into are containers and compliance. There isn't a ton of production containers in the enterprise yet but there's lots of experimentation going on. We have some things that we'd like to do and that you'll see from us over the next year around containers."
