Terraform: Infrastructure as Code for Cloud Management

The open-source Infrastructure as Code (IaC) tool Terraform, created by HashiCorp, enables DevOps developers to programmatically provision the physical resources needed for an application to execute. In addition to codifying cloud APIs into declarative configuration files, it offers a uniform command-line interface (CLI) approach to manage hundreds of cloud services.

Terraform: Infrastructure as Code for Cloud Management

The open-source Infrastructure as Code (IaC) tool Terraform, created by HashiCorp, enables DevOps developers to programmatically provision the physical resources needed for an application to execute. In addition to codifying cloud APIs into declarative configuration files, it offers a uniform command-line interface (CLI) approach to manage hundreds of cloud services. Terraform’s main features include its high-level configuration language (HCL), which IT professionals use to describe infrastructure in human-readable, declarative configuration files, and execution plans, which are created once the user describes the infrastructure.
