About Infrastructure Manager:
Infrastructure Manager is an extension to the Automic
platform that provides an automated and repeatable way for you to
create a new environment in any infrastructure provider, populate the environment with the correct middleware, and install
a version of an application. The new application is then fully functional in your newly created environment.
The provisioning process combines the capabilities of Terraform, an open source infrastructure provisioning
tool, with middleware provisioning tools (like Chef, Puppet, Ansible, and so on), and the Automic system.
can use the Infrastructure Manager to provision any resources that
are exposed by Terraform providers.
happens throughout the application lifecycle; some environments might be created even before any application code is written,
some during intensive development cycles, testing cycles, user acceptance and functional testing, and so on. In some cases,
new production environments might be created, and later new environments for patch and bug fixing might be needed. Therefore, CA Automic offers a standalone module for provisioning environments that can be integrated
with multiple tools and third-party tools to effectively and seamlessly provide full-stack environment provisioning at any
stage of the CI/CD process.
The Automic integration with the Infrastructure Manager enables you to perform single-click full-stack provisioning for your environments, including the
execution of deployment workflows
to deploy or test the Application. The implementation also provides access control and traceability on top of Terraform, along with
full lifecycle management for the infrastructure.
