Standardizing Cloud infrastructure

Youssef Riahi

Infrastructure as code is an essential practice for managing modern cloud infrastructures. Manually configuring, deploying or changing infrastructure is error prone and tedious. A scripted and automated infrastructure is key for a sound DevOps practice. This presentation will go over the benefits of handling infrastructure as code, its benefits, lessons learned and some gotchas. This topic will be in the form of a presentation (slides) followed by questions from the audience. The presentation will cover real work example(s) and use cases of IAC; and how do we, Massachusetts Digital Services Office, use tools like Terraform to manage some of our infrastructure. Upon completion of the presentation, the audience would have become informed; or more informed for others, about the benefit of using Tools like Terraform to manage infrastructure as code.
