Hosted Chef's server API is being ported from Ruby/CouchDB to Erlang/MySQL. Find out what motivated this work, what's been accomplished so far, and why Erlang and an RDBMS are good choices for Chef. We will share metrics comparing the performance and operational characteristics of Ruby/CouchDB to Erlang/MySQL and discuss the automation used to change data stores in live high-volume web service.
