IaC Proliferation - Flowchart for choosing an Infrastructure-as-Code tool

Have you ever been asked: what's the best way to deploy cloud resources? Well, I assume the obvious answer is: using an infrastructure-as-code (IaC) tool. Sounds simple enough, right? But sometimes it can get a bit complicated trying to figure out which IaC tool to use in your specific scenario.

In this article, the author has created a flow chart that gives some recommendations based on your particular situation, providing some solid reasoning for their choices in the post. It's definitely worth giving it a read: what are your thoughts on this? Do you agree with their suggestions?

AWS Lattice

The article introduces Amazon VPC Lattice, a new service from AWS that simplifies the networking layer for developers and cloud administrators. Essentially, it's an application layer networking service that enables secure service-to-service communication without requiring any prior networking expertise. This makes it super easy to configure network access, traffic management, and network monitoring, which can all be done seamlessly across VPCs and accounts, no matter what kind of compute type you're using.

VPC Lattice can be used to address a variety of use cases, including connecting services at scale, implementing granular access permissions, and observing service-to-service interactions. And the best part? It's designed to work alongside your existing architecture patterns, so you don't have to completely overhaul your current setup.

The ultimate DevOps script library

I stumbled upon this amazing repository that has over 800 scripts for many popular DevOps technologies. It also has advanced configs for common tools like Git, vim, screen, and PostgreSQL psql. Additionally, it installs the best systems packages, including AWS CLI, Azure CLI, GCloud SDK, Digital Ocean CLI, Terraform, and more; it also has SQL scripts, templates for common programming languages, and Kubernetes YAML configs for most common scenarios.

I’m beyond impressed by the number of useful scripts in this repo: check it out, you won't regret it.
