HashiCorp Solutions Discovery Workshop

40 hours

As corporations move from static, on-prem infrastructure to dynamic multicloud and hybrid infrastructures, automation of the infrastructure provisioning, security and networking across multiple clouds is a must. HashiCorp is the leading provider of the multicloud automation tools that covers a multitude of areas in the modern dynamic data centers. Key solutions from HashiCorp are:

  • Terraform: Use Infrastructure as Code to provision and manage any cloud, infrastructure, or service
  • Vault: A secure, store and tightly control access to tokens, passwords, certificates, encryption keys for protecting secrets and other sensitive data using a UI, CLI, or HTTP API
  • Consul: A platform to discover, automate, secure and connect applications and networking configurations across distributed infrastructure and clouds

Some corporations might be starting the transformation to multicloud, while others may already be experimenting with opensource tools. This workshop is intended to help the customers with discovering their multicloud automation needs and how WWT can help to address them with HashiCorp's automation solutions.

What to Expect

HashiCorp solution discovery workshop is a 5-day workshop to discover the customer's business and use cases for automation and formulate a path to quickly get up and running with HashiCorp products in a multicloud environment.

The workshop is delivered by a WWT architect with 3 days spent with the customer; 2 days for documentation that will consist of a statement of work (SOW) and an estimate of the level of effort (LOE) required for follow-up engagements.
