Tomcat Utility Deployments and AppDynamics Insights with ICO


Within the first weblog of this sequence, we checked out constructing workflows round IST (Intersight Companies for Terraform) automations to provision IKS infrastructure and deploy a pattern cloud native utility with ICO (Intersight Cloud Orchestrator). Within the second weblog we created and executed TFCB (Terraform for Cloud Enterprise) workspaces for the entire deployment of a multi service Tomcat utility and instrumentation for AppDynamics insights.

Let’s now take that automation a step additional by provisioning ICO (Intersight Cloud Orchestrator) workflows leveraging the TFCB workspaces that we simply created.

Use Case

Let’s check out a use case of deploying a multi-service Tomcat utility leveraging IST and ICO. As a worth add, the ICO workflows will embody AppDynamics Insights for this legacy utility leveraging AppDynamics Zero Friction Installer (or ZFI) or AppDynamics Agent Installer.


Within the above diagram, every of the blocks seek advice from a ICO workflow. As you possibly can see, a single workflow encapsulates not solely creating all of the TFCB workspaces, assign variables and in addition account for dependencies.

  • Arrange and execute workflow to provision infrastructure and deploy utility
  • Arrange and execute workflow to generate utility load

Please take a look at this entry in DevNet Code Change for particulars on this use case.

Extra Sources

  • Extra data on ICO
  • Extra data on IST

Up subsequent

Within the subsequent weblog, we’ll discover leveraging IST to deploy cloud native apps on IKS (Intersight Kubernetes Service).
