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.
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.
You can use the Infrastructure Manager to provision any resources that are exposed by Terraform providers.
Environment provisioning 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.
