One, two, Terraform: Building automation infra is the goal!

Today it’s impossible to imagine companies that would not use CI/CD. One of the main components of which is testing. At the early stages of business, test execution time is comparable with the other pipeline components, then with the project growing it increases significantly both in terms of execution time and price. In our presentation, we will show you our experience in building an infrastructure for test automation using Terraform. The main goals of the infrastructure would be scalability, easy support, simple deployment and configuration. Since you need to work not only with cloud providers but also with real computers, Terraform has become an ideal solution in this case. As a result, we got an infrastructure that is practically independent of the technology for writing tests, it is easily integrated into the process and it has an extremely low cost of running tests.

  • Automation testing in perspective of CI/CD pipelines
  • How painful to build the automation infra from scratch
  • Terraform as cluster-agnostic infra builder
  • Profit we experienced from Terraform usage
