Automated server deployment

Deployment-Orange

What is automated server deployment?


Deployment refers to the automated roll-out of a system. This can be an application, a fully configured server, or a container. Thanks to automation, these processes are not only simpler and faster to perform, but also reproducible.

Where are automated server deployments used?


For a reproducible infrastructure, the rolling out of servers is standardized and automated in conjunction with lifecycle management. This enables the problem-free extension of existing structures with the same software and package status. Reproducibility also has advantages in test environments for simulating error scenarios. The aim of server deployments is also to control the central deployment of the servers from a single location, without direct access to the server in question being necessary.

Where are automated server deployments used?


  • Selecting the right tools for your desired deployment
  • When configuring the deployment processes
  • Integration of deployment processes in your IT infrastructure
  • With training and education on the corresponding tools

What are the benefits of automated server deployments?


  • Standardization: Servers can always be set up identically and have the same software and package status in conjunction with lifecycle management.
  • Automation: The installation of a new server runs automatically without having to access the server directly.
  • Reproducibility: Automated and standardized processes can be repeated and always deliver the same result.

Terraform

terraform

Terraform


Terraform is a powerful tool for IT automation. It allows you to automate the use of your infrastructure, may it be cloud-based, such as Azure AD, AWS Lambda, and databases, or otherwise, for example, vSphere VMs. Your setup is not confined to a single use case: Terraform supports different cloud providers simultaneously, i.e., hybrid-and multicloud scenarios.

Terraform follows the infrastructure as code (IaC) philosophy: first describe and document your planned infrastructure, then let your existing setup match your description. For this purpose, Terraform uses its own low-level syntax, the Hashicorp Configuration Language (HCL). Terraform can be integrated into your own CI/CD workflow to automate your infrastructure. This allows you to keep your infrastructure both well-documented and bereft of configuration drifts.

Features


  • Follow the IaC principle: document your infrastructure and let your existing setup match the description
  • Use simple high-level scripting language
  • Create and manage your infrastructure:
    • VMs and containers
    • Databases
    • Monitoring
    • VS Infrastructure
  • Benefit from a multitude of supported infrastructure platforms:
    • Cloud: AWS, Azure, Google, Alibaba, Oracle, Hetzner, …
    • Containers: Kubernetes
    • Virtualization: vSphere
  • Combine with Ansible, Puppet, or Saltstack to map configuration management

How Do We Support You?


  • Solutions tailored to your needs, including concept, PoC, and final implementation:
    • Co-planning and implementation of resource management with Terraform
    • Support of existing Terraform solutions
  • Planning and implementation of Terraform-based Ansible, Puppet, and Saltstack solutions
  • Development and/or integration into your CI/CD pipeline. Customize Terraform to your needs via the cloud development kit or standard programming languages, such as java, go, c#, and python
  • Terraform Training

What is Automation?


Automation is the transfer of Work from Humans to machines realized with he help of machines.

How is automation used in IT?


For example, in the server area. With an automated configuration management process, the Installation of new VMs is unattended.

What are the benefits of IT automation?


  • Increase In Throughput performance (Higher Productivity)
  • Easing the burden on your staff (Especially from monotonous Work)
  • Saving personnel costs
  • “Green-IT”: Automation conserves existing resources, including energy (electricity, cooling) with personal-independent processes (E.g. DRS – distributed resource scheduler)

How do we implement Automation?


When it comes to Implementing IT automation, we rely on open source technologies. Experience shows that we always achieve good results for our customers with these.
