HashiCorp at AWS re:Invent: Breakout Sessions Featuring HashiCorp Products

AWS and HashiCorp have worked together closely for many years on multiple fronts, especially product engineering. As we have done in past years, HashiCorp will announce launch-day support for several new AWS services being unveiled at this week’s re:Invent conference. If you’re attending re:Invent, we have a list of sessions covering HashiCorp topics below as well as information about how we’re involved in other areas of the conference.

» AWS GameDay

AWS GameDay is an interactive team-based learning exercise designed to give players a chance to put their AWS skills to the test in a real-world, gamified, risk-free environment. At AWS GameDay, participants will be able to experience an AWS-driven self-service workshop using AWS to build a deployment of a Vault cluster (with a chance to use Terraform too).

» Breakout sessions covering HashiCorp topics

HashiCorp is a key partner for many enterprises that are using or migrating to AWS. Whether organizations become fully cloud-native, or maintain a hybrid infrastructure with cloud and on-premises resources, HashiCorp products will support those heterogeneous environments.

At re:Invent, there will be several breakout sessions and floor presentations discussing how HashiCorp Terraform, Vault, Consul, Packer, and more work with AWS services. Here are the breakout sessions:
