HoneyBook was working on a new project to split their AWS accounts into smaller accounts while doing it fully with Terraform in order to improve deployment speed, security, and configuration clarity.
Some of the resources were intended to be re-created in new AWS accounts and other resources were planned to be imported to Terraform in the original AWS account.
This project was expected to take 12 months with the help of two DevOps engineers and a manager.
As the migration project was complex, HoneyBook was seeking solutions that would allow for a smoother and more cost-effective transition to Terraform.
After just three minutes of connecting to ControlMonkey, HoneyBook’s cloud environment was quickly mapped and organized into Stacks by the ControlMonkey platform.
The platform automatically generated Terraform code that represented the different resources and created the matching Terraform state file, so HoneyBook could easily either create the resources in a new account or import the existing resources to Terraform without any hassle.
During the project, HoneyBook was able to see their Terraform coverage on the ControlMonkey dashboard and to prioritize what AWS services and resources they should handle next.
These immediate benefits enabled HoneyBook to replan the migration project to two months of a single DevOps engineer.
Harnessing ControlMonkey capabilities, HoneyBook cut short their migration project by 80% and saved countless hours of error-prone and labor-intensive DevOps hours.
