Why Terraform?

The demand for the fastest routes-to-market, and the need for reliability and scalability, has caused a shift in the way systems are built. Furthermore, infrastructure across multiple clouds is replacing the traditional data centre setup.

Automation is essential for optimum management of software and the infrastructure that underpins it. Terraform, an open source product from HashiCorp, provides a sophisticated solution for this.

It makes management of cloud services easier and more predictable. It provides a consistent way to define what’s required (infrastructure as code), and allows a common workflow and provisioning process to be applied. This is regardless of private or public cloud, or external services (i.e. DNS, SaaS offerings).

Extending Terraform through providers

Terraform is an extensible tool. This means it has the capacity to interact with the major cloud providers as standard, whilst also allowing for bespoke builds.

Businesses providing an ‘as a Service’ (i.e. IaaS, PaaS, SaaS) to clients may benefit from a custom Terraform Provider. This solution can ease integration with existing services, and help with adoption of your offering.

 

HOW WE CAN HELP

We provide full Discovery and Delivery services within the Cloud Native and Data Engineering spaces.

Whilst our focus is on Terraform and Vault, we regularly use all Hashicorp products, and we’re an official System Integration partner.

TERRAFORM PROVIDER DEVELOPMENT

As a Terraform Provider Development partner, we’re able to build a new Terraform Provider from scratch, or enhance an existing one. We have significant experience in building and contributing to public and private providers. We ensure each provider is developed to behave intuitively, whilst taking HashiCorp standards and best practices into account.

HASHICORP COMMUNITY

We’re delighted to be able to contribute to the HashiCorp community. We take pleasure in organising and running the London HashiCorp User Group, which currently has more than 2,000 members.

OUR EXPERIENCE WITH HASHICORP & TERRAFORM

We’ve worked with AWS, Google, Azure, as well as DigitalOcean and CloudFlare.
