Virtualization, cloud, containers, server automation, and software-defined networking are meant to simplify IT operations. But many organizations adopting these technologies have found that it only leads to a faster-growing sprawl of unmanageable systems. This is where infrastructure as code can help. With this practical guide, author Kief Morris of ThoughtWorks shows you how to effectively use principles, practices, and patterns pioneered through the DevOps movement to manage cloud age infrastructure. Ideal for system administrators, infrastructure engineers, team leads, and architects, this book demonstrates various tools, techniques, and patterns you can use to implement infrastructure as code. In three parts, you’ll learn about the platforms and tooling involved in creating and configuring infrastructure elements, patterns for using these tools, and practices for making infrastructure as code work in your environment.

Legend has it that Google deploys over two billion application containers a week. How’s that possible? Google revealed the secret through a project called Kubernetes, an open source cluster orchestrator (based on its internal Borg system) that radically simplifies the task of building, deploying, and maintaining scalable distributed systems in the cloud. This practical guide shows you how Kubernetes and container technology can help you achieve new levels of velocity, agility, reliability, and efficiency. Authors Kelsey Hightower, Brendan Burns, and Joe Beda—who’ve worked on Kubernetes at Google and other organizatons—explain how this system fits into the lifecycle of a distributed application. You will learn how to use tools and APIs to automate scalable distributed systems, whether it is for online services, machine-learning applications, or a cluster of Raspberry Pi computers. Explore the distributed system challenges that Kubernetes addresses Dive into containerized application development, using containers such as Docker Create and run containers on Kubernetes, using the docker image format and container runtime Explore specialized objects essential for running applications in production Reliably roll out new software versions without downtime or errors Get examples of how to develop and deploy real-world applications in Kubernetes

Over 60 proven, practical, and actionable recipes to automate and manage your IT infrastructure quickly and effectivelyAbout This Book* Bring down your delivery timeline from days to hours by treating your server configurations and VMs as code, just like you would with software code.* Take your existing knowledge and skill set with your existing tools (Puppet, Chef, Docker) to the next level and solve IT infrastructure challenges.* Use practical recipes to use code to provision and deploy servers and applications and have greater control of your infrastructure.Who This Book Is ForThis book is for DevOps engineers and developers working in cross-functional teams or operations and would now switch to IAC to manage complex infrastructures.What You Will Learn* Integrate CloudInit on AWS, DigitalOcean, OpenStack, CoreOS* Provision your infrastructure using Ansible, Terraform and Vagrant* Manage your system using Puppet, Ansible, Docker and Chef* Monitor and maintain your system using Docker, Chef, Puppet and Terrafrom* Explore the best practices to automate all the things, from cloud infrastructure to operating systems configuration.In DetailThe basic idea of Infrastructure as code (IAC) is that IT infrastructure is treated as software. IT infrastructure provisioning process is built, treated, and managed through code, rather than scripting or manual process. That means code is used to automate the process of setting up and configuring a virtual machine, container, and so on.Did you always wanted to define your IT infrastructure problems using code? If yes, you have come to the right place! Here we show you how to use the best tools of the infrastructure-as-code ecosystem with code hardened in production. We'll deploy repeatable infrastructures and services on Amazon Web Services, OpenStack, Google Cloud or Digital Ocean using Terraform and Ansible. We'll manipulate the best bits from Cloud-Init and its derivatives (like the CoreOS flavor) to easily reproduce initial machines bootstrapping process. We'll discover how to simulate consistent environments locally or remotely using Vagrant. Now we have a fully automated and working base infrastructure knowledge, we'll automate many system tasks, using Chef or Puppet. We'll build various Docker containers for those environments and orchestrate them with tools like docker-compose, with a focus on automated cloud infrastructures services.Throughout the book we'll learn the best tips working on infrastructure with code and teams.This Infrastructure-as-Code cookbook will help you use the right tool for your job, and get you started on all essential techniques.
