We also make some of our software available for purchase so that we can keep the lights on and be ready to pick up the phone when you call for support. We're also passionate consumers of software, some of which we resell and/or recommend to our clients even if there's nothing in it for us. When combined together, these solutions — our OSS projects, commercial software offerings, and third-party partner solutions — make up the comprehensive portfolio of products listed below:

Chef Contributors

Chef isn't just our configuration management and infrastructure automation platform of choice — it's also an important part of our history. Heavy Water Alumni AJ Christensen (a.k.a. "fujin") was the second committer to Chef, and it was with this level of intimacy with the Chef platform that our team was built. Our commitment to Chef extends well beyond the core platform and into the community that surrounds it, which has resulted in Heavy Water becoming one of the most prominent contributors to community cookbooks.

KitchenCI Infrastructure Testing Framework

We test infrastructure code because we test application code. You wouldn’t put a complex link into production without a test harness, and as far as we’ve come with infrastructure as code, we’re getting closer to better test frameworks and facilities.

Authored by Fletcher Nichol, Test Kitchen is an integration tool for developing and testing infrastructure code and software on isolated target platforms. It was originally developed with Chef in mind, but it is now being used across different configuration management tools.
