Pulumi Templates to Deploy Fabric Cloud Router

What is it?

Fans of automation and infrastructure as code (IaC) can take advantage of this pair of step by step workshops to learn how to quickly provision multi-cloud environments using Pulumi.

The Equinix Fabric Cloud Router (FCR) to Google Cloud Platform (GCP) with Pulumi (Workshop) shows you how to configure an FCR instance to route your Equinix Fabric Interconnection to GCP Partner Interconnect and Cloud Router. The Pulumi template used in the workshop takes advantage of these managed network services and is especially appealing for those who have no desire to license VNFs (Virtual Network Functions) or deal with complex router commands and configuration. The workshop highlights the speed and versatility of Infrastructure as Code.

The Equinix FCR Multi-cloud with Pulumi (Workshop) will build upon the previous workshop. Here, we'll add a second connection, this time to AWS Direct Connect. The composite network configuration will seamlessly route traffic between all three sites.

Why do we love it?

  • Real-world application: By creating a multi-cloud environment and establishing connectivity between GCP and AWS, you will gain practical insights into building and managing complex infrastructure deployments across different cloud providers.

  • End-to-end automation: Leveraging Pulumi, you can automate the entire deployment process, from provisioning Equinix Fabric resources to configuring cloud resources in GCP and AWS. This empowers users to streamline infrastructure deployment workflows and enhance operational efficiency.

  • Reusable: The workshop uses a lightweight template that is simple to adapt and expand into additional metros and the networks of Cloud Service Providers (CSP).

How do you use it?

To learn more about MultiCloud Connectivity with Pulumi and Equinix Fabric and embark on your journey towards building interconnected multi-cloud environments, get started with the Equinix Fabric Cloud Router (FCR) to Google Cloud Platform (GCP) with Pulumi (Workshop).

The next stop on your journey is the Equinix FCR Multi-cloud with Pulumi (Workshop), where you'll learn how to take advantage of Pulumi, AWS Direct Connect, and Equinix FCR to connect multiple CSPs.
