Traditional waterfall approaches with their risk minimization strategies do not allow for fast software release cycles; DevOps philosophy is one way to remediate that. Microsoft has been working closely with HashiCorp, the company behind Vagrant and Terraform products (among other popular OSS offerings), over the past 9 months to enable DevOps in Azure for both Open Source and Microsoft-based workloads. In this talk, we’ll share what we’ve learned about the enterprises adopting DevOps and how Azure customers can benefit from bringing those practices to their cloud application delivery today. Speaker Bio: Eugene Chuvyrov is a Cloud Architect with Microsoft. He helps companies in the San Francisco Bay area extend, migrate and take full advantage of Microsoft Azure, including encouraging them to use HashiCorp tools as part of their journey to the cloud. Prior to Microsoft, Eugene worked as a software engineer across multiple platforms and dev stacks, from .Net to Python and even R. HashiCorp Toolbox for Azure (talk 2 of 2) Abstract: With the advent of Agile methodologies in software development and dynamic API-driven infrastructure in the cloud, traditional workflows in delivery and provisioning remain a major bottleneck in the overall software development lifecycle. DevOps principles allow companies to harness the speed and flexibility of these modern systems by parallelizing the workflows of developers, operators, and security teams alike, rather than keeping them dependent on each other. Microsoft has been a major player in many layers of the stack for the last several decades, and has used their expertise to develop a cloud service that enables companies to run their applications without the complexity and limitations of running a datacenter. In this talk we will look at how using Hashicorp’s Terraform empowers companies by marrying modern DevOps workflows with Microsoft’s Azure cloud. Bio: Andrew Khoury is a Solutions Engineer for Hashicorp. He has spearheaded projects in several fields of computing, including infrastructure, web and mobile software, and IOT, and now uses his expertise in workflow and management to teach companies the lessons he’s learned about DevOps.
