ABOUT TERRAFORM



HashiCorp Terraform is an infrastructure as code tool that lets you define both cloud and on-prem resources in human-readable configuration files that you can version, reuse, and share. You can then use a consistent workflow to provision and manage all of your infrastructure throughout its lifecycle.

Terraform can manage low-level components like compute, storage, and networking resources, as well as high-level components like DNS entries and SaaS features.

 

How does Terraform work: 

Terraform creates and manages resources on cloud platforms and other services through their application programming interfaces (APIs). Providers enable Terraform to work with virtually any platform or service with an accessible API.

 

The core Terraform workflow consists of three stages:

  • Write: You define resources, which may be across multiple cloud providers and services. For example, you might create a configuration to deploy an application on virtual machines in a Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) network with security groups and a load balancer.
  • Plan: Terraform creates an execution plan describing the infrastructure it will create, update, or destroy based on the existing infrastructure and your configuration.
  • Apply: On approval, Terraform performs the proposed operations in the correct order, respecting any resource dependencies. For example, if you update the properties of a VPC and change the number of virtual machines in that VPC, Terraform will recreate the VPC before scaling the virtual machines.

DevOps FAQs:


What is DevOps?

DevOps is the combination of cultural philosophies, practices, and tools that increases an organization's ability to deliver applications and services at high velocity: evolving and improving products at a faster pace than organizations using traditional software development and infrastructure management processes.

DevOps is a set of practices that combines software development (Dev) and IT operations (Ops).


Why learn DevOps?


The technical benefit includes the delivery of software that too continuously.

It has the benefit of having less complex problems to fix. It also has the benefit of faster and easier resolutions to every problem. The business-related benefits include faster delivery of features and it also has the advantage of having more stable operating environments. The benefits also include more time so that more value can be added.

One of the important reasons is that DevOps provides the system for best communication. During the stage of production, there may arise certain problems related to blockage or delayed on progression. There are many teams involved during the production stage and to make a smooth collaboration between the teams DevOps is necessary. This will help you in having an idea about each and every prospect of the project.

Can a beginner learn DevOps?

DevOps attracts people with technical as well as non-technical background.

Anyone Can Learn DevOps: Even a fresher with basic knowledge of Linux and one scripting language can learn DevOps. For a beginner, basic knowledge of programming in DevOps is a basic requisite. For the intermediate level, the candidate should know about the DevOps tools and the understanding of cloud platforms like AWS and Microsoft Azure.

What are some of the best DevOps training courses?

Kubernetes, Terraform, Docker and Ansible.  They are all part of the DevOps culture and combination.

What is Kubernetes and why it is used?

Kubernetes, often abbreviated as “K8s”, orchestrates containerized applications to run on a cluster of hosts. The K8s system automates the deployment and management of cloud native applications using on-premises infrastructure or public cloud platforms.

What is terraform and why is it used?


HashiCorp Terraform is an infrastructure as code tool that lets you define both cloud and on-prem resources in human-readable configuration files that you can version, reuse, and share. You can then use a consistent workflow to provision and manage all of your infrastructure throughout its lifecycle.

Terraform can manage infrastructure on multiple cloud platforms. The human-readable configuration language helps you write infrastructure code quickly. Terraform's state allows you to track resource changes throughout your deployments.


What is Docker and why is it used?

Docker is an open source containerization platform. It enables developers to package applications into containers—standardized executable components combining application source code with the operating system (OS) libraries and dependencies required to run that code in any environment.

What is Ansible and why is it used?

Ansible is an open source IT automation engine that automates provisioning, configuration management, application deployment, orchestration, and many other IT processes.



 

ABOUT MICROSERVICES


Microservices - also known as the microservice architecture - is an architectural style that structures an application as a collection of services that are:

 

  • Highly maintainable and testable
  • Loosely coupled
  • Independently deployable
  • Organized around business capabilities
  • Owned by a small team

The microservice architecture enables the rapid, frequent and reliable delivery of large, complex applications. It also enables an organization to evolve its technology stack.

The microservice architecture pattern language is a collection of patterns for applying the microservice architecture. It has two goals:

  1. The pattern language enables you to decide whether microservices are a good fit for your application.
  2. The pattern language enables you to use the microservice architecture successfully.

Microservices FAQs

 

What is the difference between microservices and API?

Microservices is an approach to building an application that breaks its functionality into modular components. APIs are part of an application that communicates with other applications. So, APIs can be used to enable microservices.

 

What is microservices?

Microservices are an architectural and organizational approach to software development where software is composed of small independent services that communicate over well-defined APIs. These services are owned by small, self-contained teams.

 

Is REST API a microservice?

Microservices: The individual services and functions – or building blocks – that form a larger microservices-based application. RESTful APIs: The rules, routines, commands, and protocols – or the glue – that integrates the individual microservices, so they function as a single application.

 

Is an API a microservice?

A microservice is a small, single service offered by a company. It derives from the distributed computing architecture that connects many small services, rather than having one large service. The microservice can then be delivered through an application programming interface (API).

 

What are the types of microservices?

Broadly speaking, there are two types of microservices:

  • Stateless microservices.
  • Stateful microservices.

 

What is an example of a microservice?

Most large scale web sites including Netflix, Amazon and eBay have evolved from a monolithic architecture to a microservice architecture. Netflix, which is a very popular video streaming service that's responsible for up to 30% of Internet traffic, has a large scale, service-oriented architecture.

Should I learn microservices?

Microservices resolves organizational based issues, making it easy to debug and test applications. With the help of this framework, continuous delivery, testing process and ability to deliver error-free applications improve drastically.
