How Terraform Helps Your Business?
Terraform services provide collaboration, governance, and self-service workflows on top of the infrastructure as code provisioning from open source. It offers workspaces, modules, and other powerful constructs for IT teams striving hard to build infrastructure.
Terraform utilizes one tool and one language for describing infrastructure for Google cloud, AWS, OpenStack and any other cloud. So, switching a provider is not a hassle anymore.
With Terraform, you can manage a heterogenous environment with the same workflow by creating a configuration file to fit the needs of your project or organization.
As a provisioning tool, Terraform provisions servers themselves as well as the rest of your infrastructure.
Terraform is master-less by default. So, the challenges with master servers such as extra infrastructure, maintenance and security are eliminated in Terraform.
Terraform uses a declarative code style, wherein, you can write a code according to your desired end state, and the tool itself helps you to figure out how to achieve that state.
Terraform uses the immutable infrastructure approach that reduces the emergence of configuration drift bugs, which makes it easy to know exactly which software is running on a server. Moreover, it allows you to trivially deploy any previous version of the software at any point of time.
Terraform is an agentless software tool. So, there is no need to install any extra agents.
