  8. There are countless ways to deploy and operate enterprise applications today, and every team has their preferred toolstack. Standardizing around consistent deployment patterns can reduce operational costs by focusing skill sets on a smaller scope of technologies, and reduce operational complexity by allowing teams to re-use peripheral tools and workflows such as monitoring tools and security scanning processes, across all internal applications. With that in mind, starting with v202309-1, HashiCorp has made operating Terraform Enterprise more flexible than ever. We are excited to announce that Terraform Enterprise now supports two new deployment options: Docker Engine and cloud-managed Kubernetes services (Amazon EKS, Microsoft Azure AKS, and Google Cloud GKE). This allows customers with a preference for Docker or Kubernetes to follow industry-standard patterns for deploying applications in these environments, and simplify overall operation of Terraform Enterprise. These new deployment options are enabled by the new simplified single-container architecture first introduced in Terraform Enterprise v202306-1 and enabled by default on v202309-1...

  9. 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...

Specifically, it covers how to do this by using Terraform to provision Azure OpenAI services... View the full article
  12. Ansible is an open-source software provisioning, configuration management, and application deployment tool. It uses declarative language to describe the system’s desired state and leverages SSH to communicate and enforce that state on the target machines. Environment variables are some of the most useful tools in dynamic environments. But what exactly are environment variables? Environment variables are key-value pairs that can influence the behavior of the tools that run in a system. They act as global settings which allows the different processes to communicate and configure their behavior without modifying the code. This tutorial teaches us how to work with environment variables in Ansible using various methods and techniques... View the full article
  13. We're excited to announce the version 2.0.0 release of the Packer Azure plugin, which enables users to build Azure virtual hard disks, managed images, and Compute Gallery (shared image gallery) images. The plugin is one of the most popular ways to build Azure Virtual Machine images and is used by Microsoft Azure via the Azure Image Builder For the past year, we have been tracking the changes to the Azure SDKs and keeping our eyes on the upcoming deprecations, which were sure to disrupt how Packer interacts with Azure. When we found that the version of the Azure SDK the Packer plugin was using would soon be deprecated we began work to migrate to the Terraform tested HashiCorp Go Azure SDK. The HashiCorp Go Azure SDK is generated from and based on the Azure API definitions to provide parity with the official Azure SDK — making it a near drop-in replacement for the Azure SDK, with the ability to resolve issues around auto-rest, polling, and API versioning. Version 2.0.0 of the Packer Azure plugin addresses the known deprecations with minimal disruption to the user, introduces new highly requested features, and combines the stability of the Packer Azure plugin with the Terraform Azure provider..
