IaC lets IT maintain uniformity, consistency, and control of cloud deployments

Devin Valdez, Solution Engineer, Dasher Technologies

Planning a cloud migration? Need to implement Amazon Web Services, MS Azure, or both? Already up and running in the cloud, but starting to drown in complexity? Let Dasher guide you with Cloud Infrastructure as Code (IaC) — the most efficient strategy for provisioning and managing cloud implementations and services. 

IaC is ideally implemented at the onset of any enterprise cloud deployment, but it’s great for reducing operational complexity no matter where you are on your cloud journey. Especially helpful for mid- to large-sized organizations transitioning to the cloud, Infrastructure as Code is optimal from a security and operations perspective. 

Cloud Infrastructure as Code by Dasher Technologies

Reduce cost, execute faster, and deliver consistent enterprise-grade security and compliance with cloud Infrastructure as Code developed for your organization by Dasher Technologies. Public cloud services such as AWS or Azure offer the enterprise enormous computational power and opportunity to scale, but can also create enormous headaches for IT. Avoid laborious manual processes, public cloud sprawl, undocumented changes, and configuration drift by implementing cloud Infrastructure as Code developed by our certified, local engineers to suit your business. With IaC, cloud instances and services are managed as code in a designated version-control repository such as Git. All cloud orchestration — provisioning, deployment, configuration, and changes — can be handled centrally and uniformly. 

Dasher engineers leverage Terraform by HashiCorp for cloud Infrastructure as Code. Terraform is a full-featured, cloud-agnostic, open source tool that enables us to effectively design and/or improve your custom IaC — and it supports multiple public cloud service providers, giving you the freedom to easily migrate from provider to provider as your needs dictate. Your cloud infrastructure can evolve with your organization. Open-source technologies offer enterprises a lower total cost of ownership (TCO) and a higher return on investment (ROI). Leveraging Terraform to define your cloud infrastructure, Dasher makes it easier to move from one public cloud provider to another and host your environment on multiple public clouds. This is not possible with other competitive solutions, as they are limited to one cloud provider.  

Without an IaC approach, cloud implementations can quickly grow messy, noncompliant, and risky from a security standpoint. Infrastructure as Code lets you manage cloud utilization without throwing IT into chaos.
