ChefFast-growing IT automation startup Chef announced today that it has acquired Tower 3, adding new analytics capabilities to its services.

Chef — formerly known as Opscode — also announced that its incremental recurring revenue grew by 182 percent during the second quarter as it added new global 2000 customers.

“Today, every business is a software business. Customers everywhere expect delightful and immediate services. Meeting these expectations is only possible through the speed, scale, and consistency provided by employing web-scale IT,” said CEO Barry Crist in a release. “Chef’s IT automation platform packages the success patterns of web innovators and delivers them to the enterprise.”

In addition to the acquisition, Chef announced a new enterprise software product designed to increase the speed, power and consistency of the platform. More on that announcement, including its integration with Docker, from the Chef blog.

Chef raised $32 million in venture funding last December from Scale Venture Partners, Citi Ventures, Battery Ventures, DFJ and Ignition. It competes with Portland-based IT automation startup Puppet Labs, which raised $40 million last month.
