Chef has a broad base of users
The number of users paying for the enterprise edition is much smaller than the total number of Chef users, but Chef Software has a great constituency on which to build a business. There have been 10 million downloads of Chef since it became available. The Chef community has 55,000 registered participants. Wampold claimed 70% of Chef Software's subscription growth in the second quarter came from Fortune 1000 companies.
