Today’s cloud infrastructure is really complex. What if you could truly make this infrastructure a black box? What if you could mutate this infrastructure safely and easily? See how to efficiently use Infrastructure as Code across hundreds of developers and applications.
As more operations choices are added to your data center, whether through company acquisitions, a growing development team, or general technical debt, managing infrastructure complexity becomes a nightmare. Yet the end goal is still the same — safely deploy your application to your infrastructure. We need to tame our data centers by managing change across systems, enforcing policies, and by establishing a workflow for both developers and operations engineers to build in a collaborative environment.
This talk will discuss the problems faced in managing a modern cloud infrastructure, and how a set of innovative open source tools like Terraform can be used to tame the rising complexity curve.
Join me as I take you on a journey of exploring Infrastruture as Code techniques as we take control of our cloud infrastructure. This goal of this demo driven talk is to showcase how you can build multi-tier application infrastructure supporting multiple cloud platforms and services using IAC.
