Address complexity, improve visibility, and establish cost accountability for all your infrastructure.
While the cloud has accelerated the adoption of DevOps, IT is now facing new complexities and new technical debt. Each software pipeline stage needs a different infrastructure mix consisting of various software and tools.
Infrastructure configuration and tool sprawl has increased complexity and costs and reduced visibility into usage. Additionally, the focus on speed has led to ungoverned cloud usage, siloed teams, and disparate tools, leading to unforeseen challenges: fragmented infrastructure and islands of infrastructure automation.
As a result, IT and infrastructure operations teams struggle to visualize, manage, and govern infrastructure. This diminishing control reverberates across the organization: governance lapses, costs escalate, and security risks increase, to name a few.
This forces most organizations into reactive, manual approaches to dealing with complexity and regaining control. With cloud costs, for instance, while cloud cost management tools aggregate and report data from multiple clouds, the data reflects historical activity. And unless development and operations teams manually tag cloud instances identically, the organization will continue to struggle to track costs by team or project accurately.
It’s an unreliable long-term approach that begs for consistency and automation to make IT and software a catalyst of innovation, future-proof infrastructure systems, technology, and processes, and establish governance and cost accountability without sacrificing agility and the acceleration of innovation.
You can now implement an environment control plane to deliver and support the continuous delivery of software at scale. To accomplish this there must be the ability to discover and subsume infrastructure data from IaC, container provisioning, and configuration tools including Terraform, Helm, and AWS CloudFormation. With the ability to de-compile the definitions and automatically identify the infrastructure elements.
All of this can be accomplished with Torque which automatically models the elements of an environment into blueprints, that function as central templates for organisations to define their infrastructure usage in a standardised, consistent, and measurable way. As a result, infrastructure becomes more sharable and secure, highly scalable, and accountable with policy and governance mechanisms built in.
