Terraform

Codify Your Infrastructure With Terraform

AWS, Azure, and other cloud platforms have made it easy to spin up virtualized infrastructure within minutes. However, any kind of infrastructure (virtual machines) would require a lot of configuration. The configuration depends on the thing that the organization wants to achieve. You need to configure the compute power, memory allocation, networking, what applications and frameworks to provision, and a whole lot of other things.

 

Terraform codifies this configuration. With Terraform, you use Hashicorp Configuration Language to codify the configuration of the Azure or AWS instance you want to create. The benefit? You can use the same code to spin up as many identical instances as you want. Think of it. If you had to configure the instances manually, not only would it take too much time, but the instances won’t be consistent. Why? – Because manual configuration will invariably result in manual errors. With Terraform Azure DevOps provider, you can codify your infrastructure and use that code as many times as you wish.

Disaster Recovery with The Push of a Button

Recover From Disasters Within Minutes

Suppose you have your Azure instance set up in an XYZ region. Now, if some lousy configuration made the whole Azure XYZ region offline, you might have to set up another instance in another geographical location. However, setting up instances that are identical to the one in the XYZ region will take time due to so many configurations. But, with Terraform, you can dramatically reduce the Disaster Recovery time. Since your whole infrastructure gets codified by the Terraform Azure DevOps tool, you can run the same code to spin up identical instances in other geographical locations.

Step Up Your Multi-Cloud Strategy With Terraform

Many cloud adopters believe that they need to use two or more cloud vendors instead of just one so that they don’t get vendor-locked. But the problem is, setting up infrastructure in AWS, Azure, GCP, and others are not consistent.

There are differences in the processes. However, Terraform is cloud-agnostic. You can use the same Terraform configuration file to provision instances in AWS and Azure, and these instances will be identical. That’s the power of the Terraform DevOps tool.
