Messy yet Effective Hybrid Portability Rob Hirschfeld Post on the Event
Last week, I was able to attend the HashiConf 2017 event in my hometown of Austin, Texas. HashiCorp has a significant following of loyal fans for their platforms and the show reflected their enthusiasm for the HashiCorp clean and functional design aesthetic. I count the RackN team in that list – we embedded Consul deeply into Digital Rebar v2 and recently announced a cutting edge bare metal Terraform integration(demo video) with Digital Rebar Provision (v3).
Overall, the show was impressively executed. It was a comfortable size to connect with attendees and most of the attendees were users instead of vendors. The announcements at the show were also notable. HashiCorp announced enterprise versions of all their popular platforms including Consul, Vault, Nomad and Terraform. For their enterprise versions include a cross-cutting service, Sentinel, that provides a policy engine to help enforce corporate governance. READ MORE
