The demand for the fastest routes-to-market, and the need for reliability and scalability, has caused a shift in the way systems are built. Furthermore, infrastructure across multiple clouds is replacing the traditional data centre setup.
Automation is essential for optimum management of software and the infrastructure that underpins it. Terraform, an open source product from HashiCorp, provides a sophisticated solution for this.
It makes management of cloud services easier and more predictable. It provides a consistent way to define what’s required (infrastructure as code), and allows a common workflow and provisioning process to be applied. This is regardless of private or public cloud, or external services (i.e. DNS, SaaS offerings).
Terraform is an extensible tool. This means it has the capacity to interact with the major cloud providers as standard, whilst also allowing for bespoke builds.
Businesses providing an ‘as a Service’ (i.e. IaaS, PaaS, SaaS) to clients may benefit from a custom Terraform Provider. This solution can ease integration with existing services, and help with adoption of your offering.
At DigitalOcean, we were able to leverage OpenCredo’s deep knowledge of open source cloud infrastructure tooling to level-up our Terraform provider. Their team’s expertise helped us to quickly deliver value to our users
Whilst our focus is on Terraform and Vault, we regularly use all Hashicorp products, and we’re an official System Integration partner.
As a Terraform Provider Development partner, we’re able to build a new Terraform Provider from scratch, or enhance an existing one. We have significant experience in building and contributing to public and private providers. We ensure each provider is developed to behave intuitively, whilst taking HashiCorp standards and best practices into account.
We’re delighted to be able to contribute to the HashiCorp community. We take pleasure in organising and running the London HashiCorp User Group, which currently has more than 2,000 members.
We’ve worked with AWS, Google, Azure, as well as DigitalOcean and CloudFlare.
Evolution through Microservices to achieve extraordinary growth in the retail industry
“In this 4 day weekend we take 6% of our annual turnover and have 6x our average peak traffic; OpenCredo worked with us to completely overhaul our infrastructure including a complete migration to a container based solution running on AWS. This could not have gone smoother, and when others failed we had a great weekend.”
Moving from a single service provider lock-in towards cost-saving multi-cloud.
The department gained contemporary and budget-friendly cloud-based services, moved beyond traditional hosting and locked-in supplier contracts, and reduced their external dependencies, all of which liberated their internal technical teams.
