Solving Automation and Orchestration for Large-Scale Hybrid Cloud Environments (2022)

By David Grizzanti, Matthew Morrissey; Comcast Cable

The idea of using automation to reduce human error and speed up infrastructure deployments is not new, however, choosing the “right” tools can be challenging. Tool selection has, in some ways, become an engineering challenge on its own. Many large cable operators are not all in on a single cloud provider, automation framework, or container orchestration engine.

The authors will review a set of cloud agnostic infrastructure-as-code (IaC) modules, continuous deployment pipelines, and a GitOps/Configuration Management interface that facilitates changes. This framework can deliver an internal observability platform that hosts millions of time-series metrics, including visualization and a unified search interface.
