Infrastructure Design Patterns

cancel ✖save

Many of us adopted automation tools to help us manage the continuously shifting sprawl that our infrastructure has become, thanks to virtualization and the cloud. But we've moved beyond using tools like Puppet, Chef, and Ansible to install and configure what's on our servers, to using tools like Terraform and CloudFormation to orchestrate larger swathes of infrastructure.

As more of our infrastructure is managed by code, our infrastructure codebase grows, as does the number of different teams using it and working on it.

As an industry we're still new at this, so we're still discovering effective way to design and structure our infrastructure. This talk will explore some of the challenges and approaches to structuring environments. The goals are to ensure that multiple people and teams can understand and change infrastructure rapidly, reliably, and safely.
