HashiCorp at AWS re:Invent: Breakouts, Experts, Demos, and More

Visit us at AWS re:Invent 2021 in Las Vegas, Nov. 29 - Dec. 3 for breakout sessions, expert talks, and product demos to accelerate your cloud strategy.

Amazon Web Services’ flagship cloud conference — AWS re:Invent — is back in-person this year, and once again HashiCorp will be there in full force. (Although the in-person event is sold out, you can still attend remotely for free: register here.)

For both in-person and remote attendees, we’re pleased to share the latest news on our long-standing relationship with Amazon, and how we help organizations provision, secure, run, and connect applications running in AWS.

HashiCorp is a key partner for many enterprises that use AWS. Whether organizations go fully cloud-native or maintain a hybrid infrastructure combining cloud and on-premises resources, HashiCorp products can support those diverse environments. For many organizations, HashiCorp Terraform is the preferred way to provision resources on AWS at scale. Similarly, HashiCorp Vault is central to adopting zero trust security on AWS. And increasingly, HashiCorp Consul is how DevOps teams choose to automate networking across AWS runtimes.

Here are some highlights of what we’ll have going on at the event, Monday through Friday, Nov. 29 - Dec. 3 in Las Vegas:

There are countless ways to provision and manage the plethora of available AWS services.
