HashiCorp at AWS re:Invent: Examining the State of Your Cloud Operating Model

Accelerate your adoption of a cloud operating model. Visit us at AWS re:Invent in Las Vegas, Nov. 28 - Dec. 2 for breakout sessions, expert talks, and product demos.

It’s that time of year again: Turkeys are getting basted, Christmas lights are being strung, and AWS re:Invent is right around the corner. AWS’s annual conference brings the entire cloud industry together, and as always, you can expect HashiCorp to be a big part of the show. In fact, it’s our eighth year helping sponsor the event.

Our partnership with Amazon Web Services runs deep, because HashiCorp tools are essential to AWS customers. Here’s are just a few of the ways we’re working together to help companies advance their cloud operating model:

  • The AWS Terraform provider has been downloaded 1.3 billion times. For many practitioners, Terraform is the “front door” to AWS.
  • AWS and HashiCorp also collaborated on the CDK for Terraform on AWS. This enables developers to interact with AWS resources via Terraform using their preferred development languages.
  • HashiCorp Consul helps AWS users connect services running across different runtimes, including Amazon Elastic Container Service (Amazon ECS) and now AWS Lambda.
  • HashiCorp Cloud Platform (HCP) delivers our products as managed services, available atop AWS. It’s easy for AWS customers to connect their AWS and HCP accounts to bring managed HashiCorp Vault, Consul, Boundary, and more to their deployments. This option is ideal for organizations that want to outsource the lifecycle management of these products to HashiCorp’s site reliability engineers.

As usual, we have a lot in store for in-person re:Invent attendees. Here are some highlights of what we’ll have going on at the event, which runs Monday through Friday, Nov. 28 - Dec. 2, in Las Vegas:

»Visit the HashiCorp Booth: Directly Across from the Developer Lounge

We invite attendees to stop by our booth on the expo floor (Booth #3410) to chat with our technical experts, take in a product demo or three at one of our product kiosks, spin a slot machine with multiple levels of prizes, try your luck in a raffle for certification vouchers, and of course, pick up some nifty swag.

You can find us directly across from the Developer Lounge and next to the Public Sector Pavilion.

»Breakout Sessions: Refining Your Cloud Operating Model for Service Networking and Zero Trust Security

We are hosting several re:Invent breakout sessions and floor presentations discussing how HashiCorp Terraform, Vault, Consul, and more work with AWS services:

»Enterprise Service Networking with HashiCorp Consul and AWS

Tuesday, November 29, 12:30 p.m. - 1:30 p.m. | MGM Grand, Hotel. Room: Terrace 151

Businesses often have important applications running across different runtimes: Amazon ECS, Amazon EKS, AWS Fargate, AWS Lambda, and on-premises virtual machines to name a few. Often, development teams need to securely connect their services running in these different environments.

HashiCorp Consul, a cloud service networking product, flexibly supports cloud and on-premises workloads in multiple AWS regions. Consul helps manage this complexity while scaling with resiliency.

In this session, you’ll learn how Comcast bridged the gap between services running on multiple AWS datacenters across regions and runtimes to on-premises environments. You’ll also learn how Consul helped Comcast manage this complexity with increased security.

»Zero Trust Security with HashiCorp Vault and AWS

Tuesday, November 29, 12:30 p.m. - 1:30 p.m. | MGM Grand, Chairmans 370

Cloud security is now a board-level priority. The question for many is: “How do I move from traditional security to a zero trust approach?”

Securing systems and data requires a modern framework and a shift from static IP addresses to an identity-first approach. Unless every request is authenticated by a trusted identity, and every action is authenticated and authorized, you can’t ensure the right level of access.

In this session, you’ll learn how to adopt a zero trust mindset with HashiCorp and AWS. We’ll demonstrate how to explicitly authenticate the identity of humans, applications, and network services with HashiCorp Vault, Consul, and Boundary.
