What is Chef?
Chef is an open source systems integration framework built to bring the benefits of configuration management to your entire infrastructure. You write source code to describe how you want each part of your infrastructure to be built, then apply those descriptions to your servers. The result is a fully automated infrastructure: when a new server comes on line, the only thing you have to do is tell Chef what role it should play in your architecture.

Said about Chef as an alternative
Jenkins and the other platforms listed are more build tools rather than a server configuration tool.

Chef is ideal when you have to maintain a bunch of servers, not just spin them up. It takes some planning and thought, but instead you get an authoritative source of information about your infrastructure, versioned storage of configuration code and a cherry on top — Ruby-based DSL for infrastructure management.
