Kief Morris, Thoughtworks, Infra Engineering Principal

Running software in the cloud should help a digital business respond quickly to its customers needs and to business opportunities. The reality is that, even using Infrastructure as Code automation tools like Terraform and CDK, infrastructure and platform teams are stuck maintaining a fragile mess of custom scripts and environments, and find themselves as an overworked bottleneck rather than an enabler for value.

It’s time we moved beyond spaghetti infrastructure architectures.

Kief Morris, the author of the O’Reilly book Infrastructure as Code and Thoughtworks global lead for infrastructure engineering practices, shares architectural patterns for infrastructure as code architecture, driven by three principles. The first principle is delivering infrastructure code as loosely coupled, composable components to share capabilities. The second is application-driven provisioning to empower product teams to deliver value. The third is distributed consistency to ensure governance and operational quality.
