Terraform

Infrastructure automation tool for enabling cloud adoption

About Terraform

Terraform is an infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) solution designed to help businesses with cloud migration, version control, self-service workflows, and infrastructure provisioning. It lets users automate provisioning via collaborative workspaces, reuse codes with granular variables, remote state storage, and multi-cloud governance by using policy as code framework.

Key features of Terraform include cloud computing, configuration management, data migration, log access, data security, audit logs, cost estimation, and performance monitoring. With multi-cloud provisioning, teams can audit, secure, and govern infrastructure through policy as code, audit logs, and encrypted variables to maintain a consistent workflow. The system stores policies in VCS, enabling developers to write, test, validate, and publish them as code to ensure security and compliance across all cloud provisioning.

Terraform offers team management capabilities, letting managers organize separate business units, users, and teams with role-based access control. With a library of approved infrastructure, teams can service infrastructure requests using predefined modules, and provision their own self-service infrastructure to increase operator productivity.

HashiCorp's Terraform is the software to use if you are looking to be able to construct or reconstruct entire infrastructure of an organization/project in a very short period of time and maintain the changes as code.

Pros

● HashiCorp Terraform Integrates with over 125 providers including major cloud providers such as Google Cloud Platform, Azure, AWS etc, version control repository hosting providers such github, gitlab etc and many more. This makes provisioning, management, updating, maintenance and destruction of resources easier.
● HashiCorp products have proper and efficient documentation that makes a new user get started easily.
● HashiCorp products have a large and active community support since their products are open source.
● Hashicorp products have an easy to use interface.

Cons

● Management of state files that holds information of the infrastructure and changes may be an issue sometimes especially if a number of users are allowed to carry out new changes to the infrastructure.

A must-have for defining infrastructure-as-code. HashiCorp enables multi-cloud, vendor agnostic IaC which increases the flexibility, reduces the risks inherent with vendor lock-in, and enables things like DR.

Pros

Open source versions allow you to get started straight away, with cloud and enterprise platforms that easily let you take it to the next level. These tools are a must have for any cloud computing shop. The ability to define the computing environment in code in a platform neutral way, provides the business with the flexibility necessary in 2020.

Cons

Some quirky things in the HCL language, but major improvements were made in HCL2 (speaking specifically of TerraForm).

It does take some time to get going with some of the concepts, but the documentation has drastically improved.

It has been an easy application to use with my PowerShell scripts that I manage an entire datacenter with.

Pros

HashiCorp vault is a simple method to programatically access and maintain secure information (credentials, etc.). I like that it is simple to set up and begin using right away. There are known PowerShell and Perl modules for it, or simply using its API is not all that difficult.

Cons

There were some concepts to learn (tokens, keys, hierarchy, and other cool things it does) that needed some explaining, but a co-worker helped me understand, and in less than an hour I was using my first password.
