Building a control plane sounds like fun. Continuous reconciliation, eliminating drift, developer self-service - what’s there not to like!? Then you realize how much IaC you already have in production. Whether it’s just a few scripts, or decades of investment in tools like Ansible, Chef, Puppet, or Terraform, adopting a new tool for your platform can be intimidating. Now, thanks to Upbound’s Official Terraform Provider for Crossplane, it’s easier than ever to incorporate resources managed by IaC into your Crossplane-powered platform. 

In this talk we will discuss:

  • How to use Crossplane with your existing infrastructure managed by IaC
  • Helpful tips and tricks for deploying Crossplane with a phased approach
  • Real-life examples from our customer Millennium bcp, the largest Portuguese private sector bank, who found success adding Crossplane to their existing tech stack
