Building Automated Pipelines for Infrastructure Code with Terraform and Packer
Mar 07, 2019
Learn how to use Terraform and Packer to efficiently manage and automate infrastructure at scale.
This talk is presented by Tilen Faganel, a senior consultant at OpenCredo.
When talking about continuous delivery and testing, we typically spend most of our attention on microservices and the things surrounding them. But there is so much more than microservices that need just as much attention.
A big part of that is infrastructure. As with application code, writing and manually managing it as a single monolithic unit alongside microservices in not enough anymore and does not scale.
Today, the goal is to use Terraform and Packer to efficiently manage and automate infrastructure at scale. We need an independent, tailored build pipeline, automated unit and functional tests, automatic deployment, environment drift detection, automatic corrections, and a way to handle dependencies to give us real confidence in our infrastructure.
This presentation was part of the first HashiTalks online event—A 24-hour continuous series of presentations from the worldwide HashiCorp User Group (HUG) community and from HashiCorp engineers as well. The event took place from February 21-22, 2019.
