The Swisscom team provided a solution in the form of 'Infrastructure as Code' and made use of the AWS cloud formation for this purpose. With this service, infrastructure resources of a cloud environment can be described, automatically provided and stored as reusable templates. Modelling is completed using a text file, for example in JSON or YAML format.
The Global Public Cloud Team of Swisscom developed a total of three different templates for the creation of a VPC (Virtual Private Cloud) and full nodes for the complete validation of blocks and transactions in a blockchain.
The project followed an agile process with short feedback loops, which meant the solution was up and running very quickly.
