DevOps for Purchased Applications (COTS)
Jan 29, 2020
Learn how infrastructure as code tools like Terraform and Packer can help you codify the deployment of your purchased applications and streamline them into an overarching DevOps workflow.
Every company comes with its own unique portfolio of commercial off-the-shelf software (COTS), e.g. purchased applications such as AppDynamics, Oracle, etc. How do you pull all of these disparate products together as part of a single, codified, versionable infrastructure? Streamlined operations like this is the goal for many organizations that are trying to gain the benefits of a DevOps philosophy.
Infrastructure as code tooling, such as Terraform and Packer is the key. In this 5 minute lightning talk, you'll learn how you can use these tools to deploy and upgrade your purchased software like JIRA or Confluence consistently and without downtime.
You'll also learn how to build a CI/CD pipeline, automated testing, and rolling updates to deliver these applications to their users. And see how you can spin up an offline environment in 15 minutes from production snapshots so you can test upgrades, plugins, or tweak JIRA workflows.
