Terraform is an open-source infrastructure-as-code (IaC) tool developed by HashiCorp that enables organizations to automate the provisioning and management of their IT infrastructure. Its declarative configuration language allows users to describe the desired state of their infrastructure, while the tool itself handles the necessary steps to achieve that state. Companies seeking to optimize their infrastructure management processes, enhance consistency, and reduce manual intervention rely on Terraform for its powerful provisioning capabilities and support for a wide range of providers.
Apache CloudStack is supported by Terraform through the CloudStack provider, enabling seamless integration with Terraform configurations. This integration allows administrators to automate the provisioning and management of CloudStack resources, such as virtual machines, networks, and storage, using Terraform’s IaC approach. By leveraging Terraform with CloudStack, organizations can streamline their cloud infrastructure management, enhance operational efficiency, and ensure consistency across their environments.
Declarative, cloud-agnostic infrastructure-as-code tool suitable for diverse IT environments.
Has a steep learning curve, especially for those new to infrastructure-as-code.
