A while back, we realized that our customers were using Armory’s platform to unlock Terraform’s true potential at a fraction of the cost of Terraform Enterprise, while also unifying their cloud infrastructure with their application deployments:

 

We’ve since expanded on this use case by introducing Armory Provisioning Management, with Terraform. Here’s how it works:

Armory Spinnaker seamlessly integrates infrastructure management and automated policy enforcement into best-in-class application deployment pipelines, ensuring that your applications will deploy consistently, securely, and cost-efficiently, to any cloud target.

By bringing together the power of leading open source tools including Spinnaker, Terraform, and Open Policy Agent, integrated with exclusive Armory features, we unlock innovation in your development teams while typically saving costs as compared to the cost of Terraform Enterprise.

Here’s a video showing how it works:

The benefits you get are:

  • Gain superior functionality to Terraform Enterprise at a much lower price, while more efficiently utilizing cloud resources: Armory Spinnaker elegantly integrates Terraform, Open Policy Agent, and robust workflow and RBAC capabilities into a single platform, providing superior functionality to Terraform Enterprise at a fraction of the price. Dynamically spin up and tear down ephemeral resources (e.g. dev and test environments) so that you only pay for cloud resources that you need.
  • Boost the security, compliance, and resilience of your deployments by combining apps, infrastructure, and policy in an automated platform: Always deploy with pre-blessed, templated, version-controlled infrastructure that is tightly coupled with your application and its dependencies. Armory’s Policy Engine constantly checks your infrastructure and applications to ensure compliance with your security & compliance policies.
  • Enhance developer productivity and accelerate the delivery of new features to market: Deploy faster by bringing infrastructure and applications together in a single pane of glass. Eliminate the lag times introduced in the handoffs between dev and ops; automatically spin up and tear down the right infrastructure, at the right time, with the right configurations. Empower your devs to own the whole service from end-to-end.
