chef is a configuration management tool that automates many system
administration tasks. One interesting feature of chef is its
integration with cloud platforms such as Amazon and Rackspace.

In this presentation, we will cover how to easily deploy MySQL and
Drizzle databases on Amazon and the Rackspace cloud using chef. In
particular, Drizzle is a database designed specifically for the cloud
and we will discuss how its modular architecture benefits deployment.
