In their two-part blog post, Pivotal's Brian McClain and Bryan Friedman compare BOSH - an open source tool for release engineering, deployment, lifecycle management, and monitoring of distributed systems - to Chef and Ansible. Turns out, BOSH is the clear winner when it comes to managing Day 2 operations. In this episode of Pivotal Insights, Brian and Bryan join Jeff and Dormain to dig into their findings, share what surprised them most, and argue that BOSH isn't just for Cloud Foundry.
