New security threats and the the growing regulations make automation and compliance not only an option but a requirement, even for production systems that were not designed with automation in mind. Adding automation tools on existing production services might sound like a nightmare, but you won’t go from legacy to fully automated public Cloud / immutable infrastructure / Continuous Infrastructure in a day. With the right tools and methodologies, and small iterations, it is possible to sanitize and prepare convergence towards modern standards.
Based on real life examples, this talk will go through the different phases of the process. It will cover the identification of the needs, how to chose the first points to automate, the reverse engineering of the infrastructure’s state, the automation and API-fication of the configuration, the continuous checking of its compliance, and the ability to move to new infrastructure standards.
