So today I started toying around with a new tool I think would be awesome for the work I do with enterprise organizations and their cloud environments. The tool is called ServiceMesh.
With ServiceMesh I can create a new instance in any of a number of clouds, build the instance from a script and deploy applications to it. OR I can design a blueprint for an environment (LAMP with separate instances for different work (disk, DB & compute let’s say)) and use that blueprint to easily create new editions to an environment when an app sees an infrastructure need change, or if I want to blueprint an app’s environment to rubber-stamp the next level up (say when building QA after building & testing DEV.)
ServiceMesh is a really exciting tool, and not the only one of its kind, but certainly one of the most interesting from my perspective.
