Terraform Template for AWS CloudFormation Daily Testing

on 8/13/18 3:21 PM By | Paul Knell | 0 Comments | Testing Cloud
This is part 2 of a 2-part series. In this part, I present a Terraform template that's roughly equivalent to the CloudFormation (CF) template presented in part 1. Although on a real project you wouldn't be using a Terraform template to test a CloudFormation template (as they're competing technologies so you'd probably use either one or the other), this article presents the Terraform version for purposes of comparison. We'll be able to see how the two technologies are similar, and also highlight some of the differences.

AWS CloudFormation Daily Testing

on 8/13/18 3:18 PM By | Paul Knell | 0 Comments | Testing AWS Cloud
When it comes to Amazon Web Services (AWS), infrastructure scripting is typically done using either CloudFormation (CF), which is an AWS service, or Terraform (an open-source tool). These tools allow you to represent all the resources in your cloud environment using template files, thereby allowing you to easily create additional similar environments for purposes such as development, testing, and quality assurance. These test environments are not necessarily always needed--sometimes they're only needed during daytime hours, or sometimes only during certain project phases. Using the template files to remove/restore your environment is not the only way to cut nightly costs--there's also scheduled autoscaling groups, and an instance scheduler tool. However, maintaining the templates is unquestionably useful for testing infrastructure changes without much risk of impacting your other environments. How will you know that the template you wrote and used today will still work when you need it again months from now? A simple daily test should give you that confidence and notify you if anything breaks. So, how can we set up daily CF stack creation and removal? Answer: Lambda + CloudWatch Rules. This article works through a template that sets up this kind of daily test.

Your team is using Docker, but are they at a pro level?

on 10/10/17 2:58 PM By | Mark Panthofer | 0 Comments | Docker
Ok, it kills me to admit this as a devoted and successful DIY guy, but when it comes to using Docker for your day-job, you probably need some good old-fashioned instructor led training to become professionally competent. Yes, for the first time in a long time I have run into a technology platform where structured classroom guidance from "the source" is not just helpful, it appears to be critically important for software professionals.
