It’s 2020. The world is different, conferences are digital, and HashiCorp is announcing not one, but two open source projects!
Surprise! We have not one, but TWO new open source products to announce at HashiConf! Here is a sneak preview of that… We’ve been working on this project all year. Both are standalone, new OSS products completely unrelated to each other. Exciting. 🤩 https://t.co/NsCXbgUVOp pic.twitter.com/zJfTkmDVHN

The core HashiCorp suite, currently comprised of Terraform, Vault, Consul, and Nomad, allows for infrastructure provisioning, secrets management, service interconnectivity, and workload orchestration, respectively. However, an organization’s CI/CD and Configuration Management solutions must be pulled in from outside of the HashiCorp suite. The same is true regarding tools surrounding monitoring, logging, and application traceability.
The announcement of not one, but two brand new OSS projects from HashiCorp is very significant in terms of how organizations will leverage the HashiCorp suite some time in the future, assuming that these OSS projects become more widely adopted in the DevOps space and potentially even developed into having Enterprise-grade offerings (like the Enterprise versions of Vault, Consul, Nomad, and Terraform).
So, see you there at HashiConf Digital 2020! We can’t wait to hear what HashiCorp has been quietly working on! What are you most excited about? Drop it in the comments section and we’ll be sure to look out for it!
