Scaling your DevOps with Terraform
Emerging technology brings a lot of flexibility and control, but it comes with more risk. Organizations looking to reduce that risk partner with trusted experts like SPK and Associates. Clients who are looking to implement or integrate Terraform, an open source Infrastructure as Code (IaC) tool created by HashiCorp, are looking to modernize their technology stack, improve speed, improve reliability, and prevent configuration “drift”.
Whether you’re at the begining stages of Terraform evaluation and implementation or looking at more tactical support for deployment and integration, SPK is your choice for Terraform.

Discovery and Planning
Our team will work with you to create a DevOps roadmap based upon feedback from your team, stakeholders, and others. This phase includes a review of existing and potential tools. The roadmap that is created will consist of desired outcomes and helping to identify the metrics along the way.
Pilot Program (MVP)
Using existing tools, or trials of potentially new tools, our team will help integrate your business, technical and platform needs into a simple pilot program or minimum viable product (MVP) for testing. This program is meant to learn from. This learning helps drive the rest of the engagement.
In this phase, we accelerated our learning to perform a successful DevOps implementation with analysis, design, coding, and automated deployment can reduce manual steps, minimize the impact of human error, and create time for more innovation. This involves integration of other tools, and creating a final pipeline that is scalable and repeatable.
Training and/or Managed Services
Not only can our team help build your CI/CD pipeline and train you how to manage it moving forward, but we can also help be the bridge for your longer term DevOps strategy by providing on-going managed services in the DevOps release pipeline. Learn more.
What Does Terraform Do?
Terraform enables developers to use a high-level configuration language called HCL (HashiCorp Configuration Language) to describe the desired finalized environment, whether that be cloud or on-premises infrastructure.
Because Terraform uses a simple syntax and it’s cloud platform agnostic, it provides the flexibility and adapability to implement quickly. Terraform can safely and efficiently re-provision an environment in response to configuration changes. Being one of the most popular tools for this type of work, it is a technology that you’ll want to understand and consider if you are looking to gain speed and efficiency in your infrastructure or cloud management. SPK’s team of highly skilled and certified experts provide you with a trusted partner for any Terraform implementation or reconfiguration.
