Cloud computing is the on-demand delivery of computing services over the Internet. One of the main advantages of cloud computing is that physical IT infrastructures like servers, disk, network equipment are now virtualised. Entire IT infrastructure can now be provisioned from the browser or applications and occupies no physical space in your data centre.
Infrastructure automation, or infrastructure as code (IaC), is practice of using software tools and scripts to automate provision servers, installing software, configuring networks, defining firewall rules, etc. in virtualized IT environment like cloud computing. Developers for the first time is able to integrate infrastructure provisioning and management of their application into their application itself.
IaC is also an integral part of DevOps culture; it allows DevOps engineers to create consistent, immutable and replicable environments for development, testing and production.
In this workshop-oriented programme, participants will be equipped with the concepts of IaC, and will have the opportunity to learn about the different IaC tools and write scripts to provision resources according to a set of requirements.
At the end of the programme, you will be able to:
articulate and explain the benefits of adopting IaC into an organisation
understand major concepts in infrastructure automation
create scripts to provision resources according to a set of application requirements
managed provisioned resources and configurations
Who Should Attend
Please refer to the job roles section.
Targeted at Software Engineers, IT administrators and DevOps Engineers who are looking to use IaC tools to manage their virtualised IT resources or streamline their application rollouts.
You need to be familiar with Linux system operation and administration commands (e.g. software installation, basic networking, formatting and mounting volumes, SSH key management etc).
You must bring your internet-enabled computing devices (laptops, tablet etc) with power chargers to access and download programme materials. No printed copies of programme materials are issued. Please refer to the full tech specifications here.
