Adopting Shared Services: Terraform and Vault at the US Dept of Defense
Oct 07, 2019
Imagine migrating 3000 applications to the cloud (30% of them written in COBOL) for the US Department of Defense. And multi-cloud is a requirement. It turns out, HashiCorp Terraform and Vault are great tools for this use case.
Due to the unique mission requirements inside of the US Department of Defense, multi-cloud architecture is not only a need but a requirement to meet edge computing complexities. Designing end-to-end infrastructure deployments that span multiple cloud providers, various on-premises datacenters, and numerous commercial edge computing resources is no small task. This infrastructure needs to be secure, scalable, and most importantly, managed as code.
