Ive been using Terraform recently to achieve some IaaS capabilities for myself quickly and easily. Its pretty neat and if you haven’t played with it yet I suggest you have a look. The main challenge i’m trying to overcome at the moment is when you want to use Terraform to add resources to an established tenancy. eg adding a VM to an existing vNet thats not managed by Terraform. While trying to get my brain around that I found this article which was very useful and worth sharing. Terraform Environment+Application Design Pattern – apparently.me.uk
The following video was shared by @Gordypls. So HT to him.
Ive seen similar solutions to this need come and go over the years and have never found a solution that I was entirely happy with. This one looks better than other contenders. Its a 4 minute watch and feels like a reasonable solution for use on AWS.
Ive corrected the title on this video because CIFS is a legacy name now. See this.

A very useful mind map of AWS monitoring capabilities, their relationships and purposes.
Ive been looking for a simple widget to let me quickly configure my AWS CLI profile. No need to look any further.
