New UX/UI
24 days ago

πŸ”₯ Module redesigned.

πŸ“Œ Terraform modules as building blocks πŸ›

πŸ”₯ Cloud architects, network architect & DevOps people build cloud infrastructures in a way that allow others to reuse their work with the minimum interaction possible β†’ and if they use Terraform, they do it through modules.

βœ… In Brainboard.co (YC W22), we allow you now to scale this workflow:
- Import any module by just providing its source path

- You build your internal module's catalog πŸ’ͺ you build your self-serve modules

- Combine modules to build cloud infrastructures that are aligned with your workflows πŸ”₯

- Customize the icon of every module you import to make understandable diagrams 😍

πŸŽ‰ Encourage your colleagues to use your work πŸ‘‰ here you go https://lnkd.in/dZz2bwMv

Import your Terraform Modules in Brainboard

πŸŒ“ Smoother transition between IaC and Diagram

Design is central to building scalable infrastructures. Now, design and code views are combined for a seamless experience.

Now, you have 4 ways to work on your architecture: 
  1. Design
  2. Design / Code vertical 
  3. Design / Code horizontal 
  4. Code  
New Product Launches

πŸ“₯ Terraform Reverse is open for early access!

Terraform Reverse was our #1 feature request of all time, and we’re excited to officially announce that it is open for early access!

It means that you’re now able to convert your AWS and Azure resources into actionable Diagram and Terraform code, both auto-generated ✌️ 
 
For you, it means: 
  • It takes less than 30 minutes to migrate 2500 resources instead of 6 months. 
  • Saving you tens of $ per resource migrated, which represents thousands at scale.
  • Allowing you up to 100x faster time to IaC / automation.

Your time is a valuable asset. Don't do in months what you can do in hours.

πŸ” SOC2

Information security is a reason of concern for all of us, and has been in our DNA and a top priority from day one.
With that in mind, we’re on our way to getting our SOC Certification πŸ”’
We strive to make our platform seamless and secure for all of our users and partners.
We’ve been working with Vanta to help achieve our #SOC2 certification.
We use Vanta’s automation platform to continuously monitor different security aspects across the organization, be it internal security controls, employee training, secure development, etc. against the recommended standards.

πŸš€ Azure DevOps (both git integration and remote state)

Do you want to use Azure DevOps as your Git repository? 
Since this week, you can with Brainboard! 

🧩 Custom resource

Users can write down Terraform code inside a specific resource that doesn’t exist, and Brainboard maintains it through all the interactions.

⚑️Data sources

As per Terraform definition: Data sources allow Terraform to use information defined outside of Terraform, defined by another separate Terraform configuration, or modified by functions. 

They are heavily used in architecture to reference and/or get information about a resource already deployed. Data resources could be 
  • A common resource shared between multiple architecture
  • For security reason (read-only access)
  • Managed by another team

⚠️ Note that each provider may offer data sources alongside its set of resource types.

Import from Terraform files πŸ”₯πŸš€

Turn your Terraform code into an actionable Diagram in seconds! πŸŽ‰

This feature is brand-new to the Brainboard app, enabling everyone to upload the Terraform .tf code and auto-generate a diagram. It eases migration into Brainboard.

Please note, this feature is new and will definitely be improved πŸ™‚

Please don't hesitate to share your feedback, and we'll make sure to take it into consideration for further updates πŸ˜‰

Terraform Modules

We've seen some of you needing to use Modules in your diagrams. With this feature, you are able to reuse any modules you find online / you create yourselves as a brick of reused codes directly from the Design brick of Brainboard. We made it easy to import, drag & drop and configure your modules directly on your dashboard. Let us know what you think πŸ˜‡
