Migratory Workloads Across Clouds with Nomad

Cloud-agnostic workloads have been suggested as a solution to vendor lock-in, cost optimization, and environment flexibility. However, while all the pieces were available, in theory, the bar for entry for such a solution was often impractical. In this talk, we will discuss the capabilities enabled through use of Nomad, Consul and Terraform (with supporting roles by Atlas and Packer) to make the concept of a workload flexing between cloud providers a tangible reality. The challenges, constraints and opportunities for enhancement of the implementation covered in the demonstration will also be discussed, to help interested teams evaluate the pattern’s viability for their workloads.
