If a startup holds the promise and potential of being a success and is able to adequately demonstrate so, it can then have a lot of funding coming its way. So seems the case with the cloud infrastructure automation startup called Opscode. It recently was able to raise $19.5 million in funding from Ignition Partners which takes the total funding of the startup to a handsome $33 million.

So what exactly is Opscode offering that has the investors piqued and persuaded them to bet so much on their success. Well, Opscode enables different companies to fully automate the server infrastructures. These companies are given the choice to opt for in-cloud infrastructures or choose a behind-the-firewall model. Developers and engineers in a company decide what kind of infrastructure they want and then Opscode helps the company manage it in many different environments.

Opscode makes use of an open-source system integrations framework called ‘Chef’ which is specifically used for cloud-based automation. The company’s services are not limited to managing other cloud-based infrastructures. Opscode also offers a special version of Chef for private clouds, something which has interested a lot of enterprise users, according to the company.

Some major companies are already using Opscode in the cloud. For instance, Rhapsody music service is one of the users. The main competition that Opscode has to face, according to its CEO, is from old and established providers of similar services, such as IBM, HP and BMC. However, given the unique dimension of services Opscode provides, it may be in the position to lead the charge in future.
