Continuous Delivery: Infrastructure Edition!
Application delivery pipelines can make it a lot easier to quickly iterate on applications, but what about infrastructure? There’s toil hiding everywhere in infrastructure management, including processes like scaling up or down, patching, and more. On top of that, security requirements are often a huge consideration.
In this talk, we’ll explore some strategies for continuously delivering your infrastructure using an end-to-end CI/CD pipeline. We will also make use of infrastructure as code tools to manage the full infrastructure lifecycle with testing and feature flags.
Attendees will learn how this use case can help build patterns for others, and some ideas for improving their infrastructure provisioning and management!
