How to unscramble infrastructure configuration data

Infrastructure as code

Why discuss infrastructure as code?

Infrastructure as code (IaC) is a way to get a handle on the elasticity of infrastructure you manage today. With the use of source code to provision and manage IT infrastructure, you spin up and spin down the bits you need, when you need them.

The scale of infrastructure, and its short shelf life, makes manual ‘point and click’ provisioning implausible. Once you introduce cloud deployments, you start dealing with multiple APIs from the get-go.

So, with this vast environment sprawl, you grapple with unknown amounts of configuration data. With environments cast out and reeled in so quickly, you need automation to keep control. With automation, you go back in time and review settings. Not just in the case of performance issues but for your legal and contractual audit obligations too.

That being said, what single platform feeds so many pipeline tools with verified infrastructure configuration data? Join this webinar and learn from one of Sweagle’s customers – an international reinsurance company – how they provision infrastructure configuration data through a pipeline.

An infrastructure as code success story

On June 24, 2020, Paul Jouët joins us from SCOR, one of the world’s largest reinsurance companies. Paul is responsible for DevOps & CI/CD and gives us an insight into SCOR’s continuous and automatic validation of configuration data. See the tactics and strategies they use to ensure every configuration data item is managed, validated and secured – on demand – regardless of format.

Learning outcomes:

  • Providing standardized infrastructure configuration data in minutes rather than days
  • Getting a validated model of all infrastructure configuration data across multiple technology stacks
  • Automating the management of infrastructure configuration data
  • Accessing an API framework that seamlessly integrates with the existing toolchain to consume all configuration data
  • Utilizing a powerful rules engine that natively integrates with pipeline tools

This webcast is designed for Managers or Engineers of Infrastructure, Environments and Networks, but everyone is welcome.
