The past few months, we’ve covered various Terraform and DevOps concepts through our blogs.

After we published our article on “Terraform Templates”, we had questions like — ” Why should I use a Terraform template?” In simple terms, our answer would be: to spin off your infrastructure on the cloud as code, in a simple and efficient manner. But, is it really that simple?

We believe the topic deserved an entire blog to fully explain why Terraform templates are a necessity.

This article will be a holistic discussion of the unique value propositions of the current cloud offerings across AWS, Azure, and Terraform for rapid deployment of cloud infrastructure in their given product suites.

Azure Resource Manager (ARM) and AWS CloudFormation are both highly regarded, heavily used tools on their individual cloud providers. We will provide a snapshot in time in comparison of these tools and product development around them with Hashicorp Terraform and its roadmap.

For further discussion or questions, please join our Slack group and chat with the team and other passionate DevOps community members.

A routine “how are you doing?” is a workplace staple as you pass by a team member at work. The answer is usually met with a vague “fine, you?” and both parties move on with their days. However, “how are you doing” has become a loaded question — sometimes too complex for a one-line answer. Amidst the COVID crisis, many of the everyday formalities we’ve taken for granted have been replaced. This has implications on us, as coworkers, friends, family members, and leaders.

Arguably, every business leader has heard a speech or read an article that preaches the importance of…

If you’re in the DevOps space, it’s hard to ignore the power of Terraform. And, if you’re not in the DevOps space, but working in a technical capacity, you may not be as familiar with Terraform. A basic Google search for “Terraform” pulls Elon Musk’s latest quest to “Terraform mars” — but I assure you, it’s worthwhile to at least give yourself a basic understanding of Terraform, even if you’re not deep into the countless DevOps subreddits, Slacks, and Discord servers. Why? …
