Learn how to deploy a microservices app to Google Cloud with Terraform and the Cloud Foundation Toolkit. Rapid cloud foundation buildout and workload deployment using Terraform. #DevOps. Kelly Dodson. Cloud Technical Resident.
Last year, we released the Cloud Foundation Toolkit, open source templates that help you quickly build a strong cloud foundation according to best practices. These modules are available for both the Terraform infrastructure-as-code framework, as well as our own Cloud Deployment Manager.
This blog post will detail building a secure cloud foundation using the Cloud Foundation Toolkit Terraform example foundation. From there, we will explore how to deploy a microservices demo application onto the foundation using Terraform. After reading this content, we hope you learn how to accomplish the following:
To get started with using the Cloud Foundation Toolkit, first you need to understand Terraform and Linux command line basics. Then, you will need to make sure you have the following prerequisites.
First, you will need to clone the Terraform example foundation repository.
This repo contains several distinct Terraform projects each within their own directory that must be applied separately, but in sequence. Each of these Terraform projects are to be layered on top of each other, running in the following order.
0-bootstrap: The purpose of this step is to bootstrap a GCP organization, creating all the required resources & permissions to start using the Cloud Foundation Toolkit (CFT). This step also configures Cloud Build & Cloud Source Repositories for foundations code in subsequent stages.
If you looking to learn about Google Cloud in depth or in general with or without any prior knowledge in cloud computing, then you should definitely check this quest out.
Mismanagement of multi-cloud expense costs an arm and leg to business and its management has become a major pain point. Here we break down some crucial tips to take some of the management challenges off your plate and help you optimize your cloud spend.
DevOps is an ever in-demand skillset that companies and government entities are now clearly in need of. Passing the Google Cloud Professional DevOps Engineer exam will distinguish you as a leader in this constantly evolving area of development.
In this section, the main areas are progressively more technical and requires hands-on experience to really understand how to deploy services such as GKE, DataStore, Pub/Sub, etc. Networking, Storage and Compute are covered in detail with a focus on Compute Engine, GKE, BigQuery, Cloud Storage, and Deployment Manager.
The Cloud is a complicated space. It’s not a simple plug and play as most people would imagine. Let’s simplify the Cloud: GCP Edition. The Cloud is a complicated space.
