Project Description

The introduction of cloud native support for HPCC Systems has opened up a plethora of opportunities for those students looking to learn DevOps skills. One such opportunity is the exploration of best practices for adopting concepts such as Infrastructure as a Code (IaC) for HPCC Systems deployments in the cloud.

Aligned with this context, the goal of this project is to develop a cloud-agnostic opinionated HPCC Systems module using terraform that runs on all the major cloud providers, namely Azure, AWS and GCP. During the development process, you should consider elements such as cloud costs and system performance as part of building these modules. System logging and metrics are also essential to the users running Ecl workload so that engineers can quickly diagnose problems.

Upon successful completion of this work, it is expected that you will be able to:
