Recently our very own Software Engineer Lisa Moreno appeared on This Is My Architecture, a new video series from Amazon Web Services that highlights innovative architectural solutions on the AWS Cloud created by AWS customers and partners.

Interviewed by AWS Technology Partner Solutions Architect Lead Matt Yanchyshyn, Lisa walks through New Relic’s modular approach to automated AWS infrastructure deployment using HashiCorp’s Terraform, an open source tool that allows you to create infrastructure with code.

Lisa discusses how “modularizing” different environments is her team’s solution to decreasing the blast radius of human errors that can take down the entire infrastructure in production. Other behind-the-scenes tidbits include the “Basic Role” library used by the Terraform modules as well as an overview of how New Relic manages deployment access control authentication.

To hear more about the New Relic Infrastructure team’s creative approach to AWS infrastructure deployment, watch the full 5-minute video:
