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.

Legend has it that Google deploys over a billion application containers a week. How is that possible? The company decided to share the process through an open source project called Kubernetes, which replicates many of the features found in its internal system. This practical book will prepare you to take advantage of everything the Kubernetes platform has to offer. Rather than an exact copy of its internal Borg system, Kubernetes is an upgrade based on lessons Google learned over the last decade. Kubernetes is also designed to integrate with the most robust container ecosystem: Docker. Developers and Ops practitioners can easily deploy a demo Kubernetes environment and kick the tires, but when it comes time to scale to hundreds of nodes, you’re going to need a reliable field guide.
