I mentioned recently that in order to enjoy a transition to cloud computing, you should look at the codified infrastructure (Infa As Code). We no longer set up our infrastructure with our mice in hand, but by programming.
In a previous article, I introduced a very useful tool for producing Terraform code from the AWS console. Today I want to show you something of the same kind at Google Cloud Platform (GCP).
This time, we are not talking about a tool external to the cloud provider, but a way of doing things integrated into the GCP console.
The use is very simple. Mouse in hand, you navigate through the GCP console to make a virtual server for example. Make your choices of configuration, place of execution, etc.
And just before you start creating your virtual server, you’ll notice the REST option.
You will then have what you need in REST format to launch your virtual server.
Is REST codified infrastructure? Good question, what’s your opinion?
As always, do not hesitate to contact me to discuss your technical questions.
