Storage is one of the core aspects of cloud computing. Data has attained utmost importance in today’s world and it’s important to choose the right storage for data. Cloud providers like AWS provide multiple options to store data in various formats and classes with a varying range of availability, durability, and accessibility.

In this post, we will provision 3 types of storage on AWS using Terraform. The reference code to this blog can be found in this repo. This repository contains 3 subdirectories which contain separate code for S3, EBS, and RDS.

The post below is divided into 3 sections:

Once in a while, you come across something so cool that you can’t help but share it. It feels as easy as spreading fruit jam on your morning toast.

What is it?

The aptly named Jam Systems is the newest tool we’re using at InfraCode to host conversations about infrastructure as code, DevOps, and Terraform.

Jam Systems (“Jam”) is a live audio room for chats, discussion, brainstorming, micro-events, even podcasting where you banter about topics and stuff.

Jam is a great space to host conversations with product creators, get feedback from users, and explore future development.

It is also a good resource to…

Welcome back to our series on Terraform AWS.

In case you missed our previous post, we went over the basics of spinning up your infrastructure using Terraform AWS. We started off by creating a virtual machine — aka a Terraform EC2 instance — and allowed HTTP access to the same by defining a security group.

In this post, we’ll go over how to create Terraform EC2 instances into a VPC, and how to make them highly available by creating Terraform AWS load balancers.

This post discusses how to create EC2 instances into a Terraform VPC and make them highly available…

When I started InfraCode, I wanted to make the cloud more accessible. I think it’s ironic that these huge technology shifts, including the cloud, are supposed to increase access to technology but end up benefiting the incumbents. Breaking down barriers is hard, but as the internet has shown, it all starts with technology and innovation.

Today, I’m proud to announce our first product that will hopefully make the cloud itself more accessible, and bring down production costs significantly for smaller IT companies looking to scale.

InfraSketch is meant to be a simple tool. In a day when every technology is…

We spent a lot of time in 2020 writing about the ABC’s of Terraform. Based on previous experience with “Faun,” we know people want and are hungry for this content. We hope this guide will stand as a way for you to find the content you’re looking for from InfraCode (and maybe even earn a bookmark!!)

If you enjoyed this resource, have thoughts, and hopefully both, please let us know at the bottom and we’ll make sure to get back to you ASAP!

In this guide, we’ll go over:

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.

As I discussed in…


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…


Welcome back to our series on Terraform, where we break down must-know topics. This particular blog will focus on the basics you should know in order to spin up your infrastructure on Amazon Web Services (AWS).

If you’re visiting this post, we’re assuming you’re already aware of Terraform basics, and how you can utilize it to create templates to write your configurations. If not, we have a series of Terraform tutorials that can get you up to speed.

In this blog on Terraform AWS, we’ll go over the foundations, as well as how to create a template. Stay tuned for…


Editorial note: Hi all, Infracode started business in 2020 and it’s been a rip-roaring year for us. I know a lot of the stuff has been going on behind the scenes so far but we’re super excited for what 2021 is about to bring for us, and I hope our readers are too.

Keep an eye on us over the next couple of weeks and months — there’s a lot to come. Find us on Slack for more information and learn how to get involved.

DevOps has been cascading outwards along with Cloud for a long while, both originating in…
