• Yes. ShuttleOps leverages Chef Habitat, which is great for packaging and managing the application lifecycle of COTS applications. Once packaged with Chef Habitat, you can use ShuttleOps to assist with building, deploying and managing your COTS applications in the Cloud.

  • Currently, ShuttleOps integrates with Chef Habitat. Future integrations will include Chef Automate to facilitate continuous compliance via Chef InSpec and configuration management / compliance remediation via Chef Infra.

  • A deployed application component is a runnable component that is deployed to a compute resource (e.g. AWS EC2 server).

    In the context of Chef Habitat, this would be equivalent to a Chef Habitat package that's deployed and running as a service under the Chef Habitat Supervisor.

    Each time an application component is deployed to a compute resource, it will count towards the number of total application components that can be deployed under your usage tier.

    For instance, if you have a database application component that you wish to deploy onto three compute resources to create a database cluster, each deployed database application component will count towards your total of allowed deployed application components under your usage tier.

  • The ShuttleOps Preview supports building and deploying applications to Linux.

    Future updates will include support for Windows.
