The Instillery is teaming with San Francisco-based HashiCorp, using that company's open source toolchain to help modernise client infrastructure.

In a LinkedIn post, The Instillery founder Mike Jenkins wrote that his company had been working towards a partnership since 2017 and that it was now "linkedin official".

HashiCorp builds tools that can manage both physical and virtual machines, Windows, and Linux, SaaS and IaaS, to ease architecture and deployment decisions for complex multicloud transformation projects.

"On the back of a number of exciting engagements across Aotearoa's enterprise and goverment client base leveraging Terraform, we thought we'd better 'pull a hammy and put a ring on it!'," Jenkins wrote.

"So.... really excited to finally make this "linkedin official" and share the news about our exciting partnership with HashiCorp and their open source toolchain including: Terraform, Vagrant, Packer, Vault, Consul, and Nomadas."

The partnership was a signal of intent about the evolution of The Instillery's devops capability as it "doubled down" to deliver velocity and accelerate kiwis cloud and automation success, Jenkins added.

"This partnership is all about enabling kiwi organisations to adopt consistent workflows to provision, secure, connect, and run any infrastructure for any application."
