Cloud-native is much about speed and agility and depends on cloud infrastructure automation.
Terraform defines the desired state into Infrastructure as Code (IaC), and your code becomes the source of truth.
- Write declarative configuration files
- Plan and predict changes
- Create reproducible infrastructure
- Collaborate and share infrastructure as code
- Automate consistent workflows
In the Cloud Operator Model, HashiCorp Terraform provides the core functionality of infrastructure provisioning and management.
