Discover the methodologies and best practices for getting started with HashiCorp tools, including Terraform, Vault, and Packer. The book begins with an introduction to the infrastructure-as-code concept while establishing the need for automation and management technologies. You'll go over hands-on deployment, configuration, and best practices for Terraform, Packer, Vault, Nomad, and Consul. You'll then delve deeper into developing automation code using Terraform for automating AWS/Azure/GCP public cloud tasks; advanced topics include leveraging Vault for secrets management and Packer for image management.

Along the way you will also look at Nomad and Consul for managing application orchestration along with network interconnectivity. In each chapter you will cover automated infrastructure and application deployment on the VM/container base ecosystem. The book provides sample code and best-practice guidance for developers and architects to look at infrastructure-as-code adoption from a holistic viewpoint.


All the code presented in the book is available in the form of scripts, which allow you to try out the examples and extend them in interesting ways.
