As we move toward hosting workloads on cloud-based resources such as virtual machines, storage, and container-based solutions, it’s also important to modernize how these resources are deployed and managed. Gone are the days of manual and one-off virtual machine deployments and upgrades. In a cloud native world, infrastructure deployments should be repeatable, automated, and version controlled. In order to reach this cloud native goal, it’s important to consider template-based deployment technologies.
Neil Peterson discusses and compares the available template-based solutions for deploying cloud-based infrastructure. He then digs in deep on using Terraform to deploy and upgrade fully configured solutions, as well solutions that span multiple cloud providers. Finally, he walks you through methods for integrating Terraform deployments into change management processes and continuous deployment pipelines. You’ll quickly get up to speed on methods for modern infrastructure deployments with Terraform.
You’ll use Azure as the cloud provider and will be provided access to Azure trial subscriptions for the workshop labs. While Azure will be used, all concepts from the workshop are portable to most cloud providers.
Neil Peterson is a senior content engineer at Microsoft, where he delivers technical documentation and samples with a focus on Azure and containers. A data center and cloud enthusiast, Neil has 15 years’ experience in large data center deployment, management, and maintenance operations.
