One of Latin America's Largest Airlines Selects Chef™ for Rapid Data Center Configuration and Automation.

The Challenge

LAN is one of the largest airlines in South America, serving more than 76 destinations around the world through an extensive network within Latin America, and connections to North America, Europe and the South Pacific. To power its web-based customer service operations, LAN employs hundreds of physical servers within a firewalled data center, harnessing significant computing power to enable rapid service, seamless data management and efficient application development and delivery. Such a sophisticated infrastructure requires significant management and configuration, which was well beyond the time and resources of LAN's infrastructure team.

The Solution

LAN selected Chef's Chef™ to configure, manage and automate its data center supporting operations for LAN.com. Chef's Chef enables the airline to securely, quickly and seamlessly scale hundreds of servers to provide customer access during high-demand periods and will save precious man hours.

The Results

  • Excellent Customer Service: By automating website operations using Chef, LAN has achieved nearly 100% uptime for its website, ensuring an unparalleled customer experience.
  • Reduced Management Costs: With Chef, LAN's infrastructure team can now manage its entire website with a few button clicks, saving time and money.
