InfoQ Homepage News Infrastructure as SQL on AWS: IaSQL is Now Open Source and SaaS
IaSQL, the company behind a service that models AWS infrastructure using SQL, has recently announced that IaSQL is available as open source and software as a service.
Mapping cloud APIs into SQL tables, IaSQL manages a two-way connection between an AWS account and a hosted PostgreSQL database to describe an AWS deployment. LuisFer De Pombo, co-founder and CEO, explains:
Infrastructure as Code solutions do not have a good way of encoding dependencies across infrastructure pieces in a micro services architecture which makes it really hard to make and revert changes to infrastructure. Representing your infrastructure as SQL resolves the primary issue of YAML-based infrastructure tools by making the relations between pieces of your infrastructure first-class citizens.
The service can be configured to manage existing deployments: connecting an AWS account to an IaSQL instance, the database is populated with the running cloud resources, and services can be defined and limited using a module system where every IaSQL module is mapped to an AWS service, for example aws_ec2 or aws_elb.
