Infrastructure as Code (IaC) is part of many continuous integration and continuous delivery pipelines and plays a very big role in DevOps. The process of managing and provisioning data centers can be addressed with many tools like Ansible, Puppet, or Chef. While tools like these are exclusively for configuration management, HashiCorp’s Terraform is commonly used for the creation and management of cloud infrastructures. As such, it has proven to be of great value in the context of serverless environments.
Experts Michael Bruns and René Lengwinat summarize how to manage infrastructure as code in our “All you need to know about Terraform” infographic. They also show how to build and dismantle infrastructure, create helpful modules, and improve project collaboration.
