Terraform + Sentinel: How and why we built policy management for cloud provisioning
Jan 24, 2018
With the automation and scale possible for cloud infrastructure provisioning today, what kind of guardrails do enterprises need? What’s possible today -- and what’s next?
- Mitchell HashimotoCo-Founder & CTO, HashiCorp
- Armon DadgarFounder & Co-CTO, HashiCorp
Watch a special webinar as HashiCorp founders Mitchell Hashimoto and Armon Dadgar share their views on cloud infrastructure provisioning and policy management. The webinar is a technical back-and-forth between Mitchell and Armon discussing their insights on the importance of automation, how it began with infrastructure as code, and the next step in cloud infrastructure provisioning -- policy as code.
Mitchell and Armon go on to discuss how they are focusing HashiCorp’s offerings to help with these concerns. HashiCorp Terraform Enterprise uses infrastructure as code and automation to remove the manual burden on operators to make changes to infrastructure at scale. This efficiency comes with risks, as less experienced users can make significant mistakes that impact business operations. Mitchell and Armon introduce Sentinel, the HashiCorp policy as code framework, which lets IT operators embed the necessary policy guardrails into the provisioning workflow.
Watch this webinar to hear from Mitchell and Armon about:
- The motivation behind policy management for cloud provisioning, Sentinel, and the fundamentals of the policy as code framework
- How Sentinel can help influence everyday provisioning practices and real-life examples with Terraform Enterprise including a live demo
