The IaC Tooling Face-off for Modern Cloud Native SRE Practices

Ohad Maislish

With Infrastructure as Code (IaC) becoming the de facto way we manage our infrastructure today, a lot of excellent tools have become widely adopted that each have a different set of strengths. In this talk, we'd like to take a look at the evolution of the IaC landscape over the past decade and where we're heading, with a focus on Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) and modern cloud-native operations challenges. We'll examine some of the biggest SRE and operations challenges through the lens of IaC, including disaster recovery, security, cost optimization, performance tuning, and even where complexity factors in when choosing your tooling of choice. While many teams have already selected their IaC tooling, we may also like to consider migration and integration of multiple tools for different use cases and stacks. In this interactive talk, we'll allow you to decide which tools we explore - from CDK to Pulumi, Terraform, OpenTofu, Helm, ArgoCD - to learn about how they stack up versus modern cloud-native SRE challenges.
