A golden image provides the template which a virtual machine is created from. It may be referred to as a base image or an image template. As infrastructure-as-code enables velocity through automation, tools such as HashiCorp's Packer have become standard for creating golden images from code. Coupled with build tools such as Azure DevOps, Hashicorp’s Packer and Terraform, we can create pipelines to host golden images in Azure, and make them available through Azures Shared Image Gallery. Join this session to see how CDW uses golden images to allow you to do the configuration work once, and use it across your entire infrastructure. It will save you time, make you faster and reduce human error.
