Standardizing Infrastructure as Code (IaC) across a cloud organization can be challenging. Ensuring consistency, reliability, and security in IaC implementations while aligning them with both business and technical objectives is complex. Organizations often struggle with managing version control effectively, adhering to coding standards, ensuring code quality and security through reviews, and automating testing and validation processes. These challenges can lead to errors, inefficiencies, and non-compliance with policies and regulations, especially in environments where cloud resources are constantly evolving.
Brainboard offers a comprehensive solution to standardize IaC processes within cloud organizations. It enables the creation, isolation, and testing of diagrams and code changes using version control and branching, facilitating parallel development and easier code reviews. Brainboard promotes adherence to coding standards and conventions, improving code quality and clarity, and making it easier for teams to understand and review infrastructure changes. The platform also supports code reviews and pull requests to ensure that code meets quality and security standards and aligns with business and technical requirements. Automated testing and validation features verify that the code functions as expected and complies with policies and regulations, while also detecting any drifts or discrepancies in cloud resources. Furthermore, Brainboard's continuous integration and delivery processes monitor and improve code performance, reliability, and security, enforcing rules and constraints for IaC such as security, compliance, and cost optimization. Brainboard enables the building of efficient cloud infrastructure without writing Terraform code, allowing for the auto-generation of Terraform code using repeatable patterns, modules, templates, and variables. This approach ensures a standardized, efficient, and secure cloud infrastructure development process.
