Getting started with Terraform
Automation and DevOps are probably two buzzwords which have gone hand in hand with the cloud over the last couple of years, while simplified user interfaces are great, they just don’t cut it when you want to start to automate tasks like the creation of systems within the cloud. Watch this technical session about Terraform, ideal for Solution Architects and IT Operational folk.
In this session, Lorenzo Galelli takes a look at one of those automation tools, Terraform, and highlights its ability to quickly create environments that can be used over and over again. In the world of compostable resources, the automation Terraform brings can be invaluable with not only the creation of systems but also for standing up environments in case of disaster recovery too. Dig into what Terraform is, how it can be used and provide a demonstration on how to build out an environment.
