Topic: IaC is not alchemy: our road to Terraform
Everyone has different experiences with various Infrastructure as Code (IaC) tools in AWS environments. At Ocado Technology, we do too. During the talk, we will delve into our experience and explore available options, their strong and weak points and what finally convinced us to transition our stacks to Terraform. You will be able to gain valuable insights into our migration process, the challenges we faced along the way, and the core benefits that adopting Terraform brought to our cloud infrastructure management.
