Deploy a Production Ready Vault Cluster on AWS in 5 Minutes
Mar 20, 2020
HashiCorp Vault setup doesn't need to be difficult. Learn how to use AWS native tools to rapidly spin up a production ready HA Vault cluster in about 5 minutes.
Solutions Engineer, HashiCorp
This SE Hangout hosted by HashiCorp solutions engineer Sean Carolan is for new and intermediate AWS users who want to get up and running quickly and securely with HashiCorp Vault, with minimal effort and setup time. It's specifically geared toward pure AWS shops that are using CloudFormation instead of HashiCorp's own multi-cloud provisioning tool, Terraform.
Watch the video above and then read the companion blog post for a clear picture of the process.
