While it is great to have automation and placement policies in Turbonomic, it would be important to execute the actions recommended by Turbonomic in accordance with policies defined by organisations. These policies could be related to security, authorization etc. For example, creation of a new Virtual Machine (due to action recommended by Turbonomic) should use an organisation approved image, or should not have security groups allowing inbound access from internet. This would mean Turbonomic should pass on the VM creation request (payload) first to OPA policy to check if the request is compliant with the rules. The VM creation should be aborted if the OPA rule evaluation fails. This will help in ensuring any infrastructure created/modified is in accordance with the policies defined by the organisation.
Support for Open Policy Agent will enable organisations to import their existing OPA policies instead of having to implement custom policy checks for every tool/application they integrate with while dealing with infrastructure operations. Also, it would be beneficial if Turbonomic policies can be authored using Rego language (used by OPA)
