Businesses providing an ‘as a Service’ (i.e. IaaS, PaaS, SaaS) to clients can benefit from a custom Terraform Provider. By making your service available to provision through the market-leading Terraform tool, we can remove barriers to adoption for organisations who are using Terraform. This, in turn, reduces any friction within the decision-making process and will expand your market reach.
HOW WE CAN HELP
As a Terraform Provider Development partner, we are able to build a new Terraform Provider from scratch or enhance an existing one. We have significant experience in building and contributing to Terraform providers, both publicly and privately. We ensure each provider is intuitive to use, whilst meeting HashiCorp standards and best practices.
We have built and implemented Terraform Providers for the following Cloud Vendors:
As part of our ongoing DevOps projects we have also contributed to the following Providers:
We approach these projects via our Discovery and Delivery phases. Firstly we would do a thorough review of your service and the resources you offer. This sets the foundation for the Terraform provider interface – which resources can be provisioned through Terraform and what configuration options are offered. Once a clear understanding of this is established we can deliver a POC to demonstrate how the provider would work, followed by iterative cycles to extend and optimise.
The following points are some of the key business benefits of having a custom Terraform Provider:
- Increase ease of adoption – Instead of developing a bespoke tool which requires specialist skills to operate, creating a custom Terraform provider aligns your provisioning process with other infrastructure resources and makes it easier for engineers to incorporate into automation pipelines. Thus, removing barriers to adoption for organisations who are using Terraform.
- Reduce market friction and expand market reach – With continued adoption by many organisations, Terraform has become a market-leading tool for managing infrastructure. Having a custom Provider will reduce market friction and expand your market reach to these organisations.
