When a Colorado-based space technology company needed help to expand and maintain its air-gapped environment to run downstream Kubernetes clusters in the cloud, this space innovator reached out to Redapt for support.
In a nutshell
Utilizing HashiCorp Terraform to provision its AWS environments, the space technology company wanted to run its downstream clusters in AWS while maintaining an air-gapped environment necessary for high security.
Brokered through Rancher, the space innovator engaged with Redapt to understand how to configure its AWS environment to increase availability across regions while upholding its highly secure private network. The Redapt team proposed building out Terraform Infrastructure as Code (IaC) to provision the downstream clusters within AWS.
Redapt delivered a Terraform IaC solution that provisions downstream clusters in AWS and allows the client to better utilize native AWS resources like autoscaling and automation to spin up clusters at will within secure environments across regions.
Moment of clarity
To overcome the challenges of air-gapped environments in Rancher, our client leveraged Redapt experts to develop a robust Terraform solution for downstream provisioning clusters in AWS.
What the company needed
Redapt's team of experts configured the AWS environment to ensure private endpoints were utilized by default—rather than using the Rancher control plane, which by default, makes use of public endpoints. The Redapt team also provided the client with a documented upgrade strategy, allowing the client to replace versions of Kubernetes easily and as needed.
- Terraform infrastructure as code to support private IPs and automation
- Optimization of native cloud resources such as AWS Auto Scaling
- Optimization of total cloud cost
- Customized and documented upgrade strategy to use as deployment template for replacement Kubernetes clusters
- Dynamic ability to scale and apply changes to air-gapped environments across multiple regions
The end result
Through its partnership with Redapt, the space technology company obtained the mobility and flexibility it desired to spin up clusters at will securely and effortlessly.
Maintaining and ensuring
high security of the client's network.
Utilization of native cloud resources
to better optimize the client's AWS environments.
Massively improving the client's ability
to deploy and replaces Kubernetes clusters at will across environments and the globe.
