  15. HashiCorp Terraform is a versatile infrastructure-as-code tool that empowers users to define and provision infrastructure resources with ease using a declarative configuration language. While Terraform provides solutions for converting strings to lists, there are occasions where you’ll need to do the opposite: convert a list into a string. This can be particularly beneficial when configuring […] The article Terraform: Convert String to List (join function) appeared first on Build5Nines. View the full article
  16. At HashiDays in June, we announced the public beta for a new offering on the HashiCorp Cloud Platform: HCP Vault Secrets is a powerful new tool designed to identify, control, and remediate secrets sprawl and centralize secrets management by synchronizing secrets across platforms. Secrets are unlike traditional credentials because they are leveraged by developers, applications, services, infrastructure, and platforms to establish trusted identities. As organizations distribute their workloads across more platforms they lose centralized control over identity security and become more exposed to secrets sprawl. This post reviews the secrets sync beta feature released as part of Vault Enterprise 1.15 and discusses how it will help organizations corral secrets sprawl and regain centralized control and visibility of their secrets...

  17. Microsoft’s primary method for managing identities by workload has been Pod identity. However, the company’s Pod identity technology and workflows are being deprecated and will not be supported after December 2023. Microsoft will continue to support identity workflows with its Workload Identity Federation (WIF) product, which was released as part of Vault 1.15 to deepen Vault’s integration with MS Azure. In this post, we’ll take a deeper look at the advantages and caveats of WIF... View the full article

  20. A GitOps tool like Argo CD can help centralize the automation, installation, and configuration of services onto multiple Kubernetes clusters. Rather than apply changes using a Kubernetes CLI or CI/CD, a GitOps workflow detects changes in version control and applies the changes automatically in the cluster. You can use a GitOps workflow to deploy and manage changes to a Consul cluster, while orchestrating the configuration of Consul service mesh for peering, network policy, and gateways. This approach to managing your Consul cluster and configuration has two benefits. First, a GitOps tool handles the order-of-operations and automation of cluster updates before configuration updates. Second, your Consul configuration uses version control as a source of truth that GitOps enforces across multiple Kubernetes clusters. This post demonstrates a GitOps workflow for deploying a Consul cluster, configuring its service mesh, and upgrading its server with Argo CD. Argo CD annotations for sync waves and resource hooks enable orchestration of Consul cluster deployment followed by service mesh configuration with Custom Resource Definitions (CRDs). Updating a Consul cluster on Kubernetes involves opening a pull request with changes to Helm chart values or CRDs and merging it. Argo CD synchronizes the configuration to match version control and handles the order of operations when applying the changes... View the full article
  21. Since the beginning of the project, HashiCorp Packer has supported extending its capabilities through plugins. These plugins are built alongside community contributors and partners to help Packer support building images for many cloud providers and hypervisors. In the past, to help Packer users get up and running quickly, popular plugins were bundled into the main Packer binary. This had advantages, notably that users did not have to install plugins separately in order to use them. However, as the plugin system grew, bundling all plugins introduced maintenance issues...

  22. On August 10, 2023, HashiCorp announced that after ~9 years of Terraform being open source under the MPL v2 license, they were suddenly switching it to a non open source BSL v1.1 license. We believe the BSL license is a poison pill for Terraform which threatens the entire community and ecosystem, and in this blog post, we’ll introduce OpenTF, our plan for keeping Terraform open source—forever ...

  24. The way organizations provision infrastructure has significantly changed as they move from dedicated servers to capacity on-demand in the cloud. Homogeneous blueprints of infrastructure owned by IT have grown inefficient and outdated. In the cloud, infrastructure resources must be readily available across a variety of providers. While infrastructure automation underpins the move to the cloud and the overall modernization of application delivery, this shift exposes organizations to a diverse new set of security challenges. According to the 2023 HashiCorp State of the Cloud Strategy Survey, security ranked as the #1 enabler of multi-cloud success. Security is important — everyone knows how crucial it is to stay on top of the rapidly changing cloud security landscape. But to do so, organizations must address shortcomings in their traditional provisioning processes ... View the full article
