Opscode Closes $11M Series B Funding Round

Opscode, Inc., a Seattle, WA-based provider of infrastructure automation for servers, datacenters, desktops, and cloud computing platforms, has closed an $11m Series B round of funding.
The round was led by Battery Ventures, with participation from Draper Fisher Jurvetson, which led the company’s $2.5m Series A funding.
It brings the total amount Opscode has raised to date to $13.5m. 
In conjunction with the investment, Sunil Dhaliwal, a general partner at Battery Ventures, will join the board of directors of the company.
The new funds will be used to expand Opscode’s engineering staff, conduct R&D projects, and sales and marketing activities.
In 2009, the company released “Chef”, an open source systems integration framework, which allows software developers and engineers to manage large-scale server and application deployments by writing code, rather than running commands by hand.
Chef is currently in production at top websites.
