Other Tools for Automation
Apart from AWS, Google and Microsoft Cloud’s Automation tools, there are many different cloud infrastructure automation tools available using which we can help you choose the ones that best serve your cloud infrastructure needs, irrespective of your migration targets – public, private or hybrid cloud architectures.
Ansible is now becoming an industry standard infrastructure automation tool. It has numerous capabilities like GUI-based inventory management, flexible REST API, multi-playbook workflows, job scheduling and ability to embed in almost any task-based configuration management process.
Kubernetes is a container orchestration platform for automating the deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications. It makes it easy to deploy and operate applications based on a microservice architecture for almost any cloud by creating an abstraction layer on top of a group of hosts.
Terraform is an open source tool that can be used to create and modify infrastructure. It helps you by automatically configuring and managing the lifecycle of a wide range of resources, including physical servers, networking, and SaaS products with the aid of extensive resource graphing and execution plans.
