For provisioning, IT ops needs to provide some constraints while maintaining the benefits of self-service.
Embrace infrastructure as code

Secure applications & infrastructure
Rather than attempting to recreate the traditional 'castle & moat' approach, security professionals should focus on addressing the following core requirements:
Distributed secrets management
Encryption of data in flight and at rest
- Distributed secrets management
Run applications on any infrastructure
The architectural goal when considering the realities of multi-cloud is to enable diversity of application runtimes across one or more infrastructure providers. Therefore, two of the primary requirements are:
Separation of concerns
Efficient resource utilization
- Separation of concerns
Connect applications across infrastructure
A core requirement of the cloud model is a common backbone in the form of a dynamic registry that describes where services and infrastructure components are running and allows hardware failures to be masked and mitigated. It also enables elasticity, without hard-coding or having a large portion of the infrastructure tasked with load balancing. This common backbone needs to:
Dynamically discover services
Describe real-time configuration
- Dynamically discover services
The challenge of going multi-cloud
The shift from static and consolidated to dynamic and distributed infrastructure introduces challenges for the key people that manage infrastructure:
OperationsThe challenge for operations teams moving to cloud is to enable the automation through infrastructure as code while embracing the inevitable heterogeneity of different cloud providers.
SecurityThe challenge for security professionals is to rethink the 'castle & moat' approach to perimeter-based security and reconsider security holistically across the dynamic, distributed fleet.
Architects & developersThe challenge for architects and developers is to accommodate the necessary diversity of application platforms across a distributed fleet.

Kieran Broadfoot, Hosting CTO
"The HashiCorp Product Suite provides us with modular solutions that are exceptional at what they do and will grow with us over the next decade, allowing us to provision any infrastructure for any of the applications we are developing."
John Mitchell, Chief Development Architect
"Terraform enabled us to quickly boot new services and resources in a matter of minutes, a task that previously would have taken days."
Calvin French-Owen, Co-founder
HashiCorp Product Suite
Each product addresses a focused concern for the technical and organizational challenges of infrastructure automation. This means products can be adopted one at a time or all together. We do this by enabling consistent workflows—not technologies. This enables customers to follow the same approach across their private data centers and their cloud environments.
