A REVIEW OF EXISTING CLOUD AUTOMATION TOOLS

Abstract


Many enterprises are running distributed applications on their on-premise servers. However, if load on those servers changes unexpectedly, then it
becomes tedious to scale the resources and requires skilled human power to manage such situations. It may increase the capital expenditure. Hence,
many companies have started to migrate their on-premise applications to the cloud. This migration of the applications to the cloud is one of the major
challenges. To setup and manage the growing complex infrastructure, after migrating these applications to the cloud are really a time-consuming and
tedious process which results in downtime. Hence, we need to automate this environment. To achieve architecture for the distributed systems which
support security, repeatability, reliability, and scalability, we require some cloud automation tools. This paper summarizes tools such as Terraform and
cloud formation for infrastructure automation and Docker and Habitat for application automation.
