Staging an Intervention: Twelve Steps to Recovery – Transitioning from ARM/Bicep to Terraform
This talk explores the advantages of transitioning from ARM/Bicep to Terraform, emphasizing its alignment with iterative software development and day 2 operations in cloud infrastructure. Terraform's design caters to an agile development cycle, allowing teams to manage infrastructure with the same flexibility as application code, enhancing synchronization and agility.
Additionally, Terraform's compatibility with multiple control planes reduces friction in DevOps processes and release pipelines. This flexibility streamlines cross-platform management, supporting a more integrated approach to infrastructure handling and promoting collaboration between development and operations teams.
The presentation will use real-world scenarios to show how Terraform's infrastructure as code approach can revolutionize cloud resource management. Attendees will gain insights into Terraform's strategic benefits for a more agile, responsive, and efficient approach to cloud infrastructure management.
- Azure Cbus March Meeting: Multi-Cloud Mashup!!!Veeam Software, Columbus, OH
🚀 Join us in Columbus for the first-ever Multi-Cloud Crossover Meetup! AWS, Azure, and HashiCorp User Groups unite! Dive into a tech mashup featuring Terraform, Apache Airflow, Kubernetes, Helm, CI/CD, EKS, and AKS. Connect, learn, and explore the vast cloud universe with us! 🌐💻🌟
This month's spotlight shines on Jim Kittle, Senior Enterprise Architect from THE Ohio State University, who'll be guiding us on this thrilling multi-cloud expedition:
"Dataverse: Cruising with a multi-cloud data platform"
In this talk you’ll hear about a journey that started with a challenge to take legacy deployments of data scheduling, data integration, on-premise, and cloud based solutions and how they are in flight into AWS and Azure with the help of Terraform. The stack consists of Apache Airflow, AKS/EKS, Helm, and CI/CD with Gitlab. We’ll go a megaparsec wide and parsec deep in this talk and happy to talk deeper into the various levels after!
