How to Automate Azure Cloud Infrastructure with Terraform
Hasicorp's Terraform is an open-source cloud infrastructure automation software tool designed to provide organizations with control and automation processes in the public cloud. This CLI tool, in conjunction with Azure allows for organizations to build repeatable processes for defining, provisioning, and configuring Azure cloud workloads.
This infrastructure automation tool provides organizations with a tremendous benefit in a variety of ways. Inherent in any repeatable process, user errors are going to happen. By automating cloud workflows, organizations can greatly remove the element of human error, streamline workflows and reduce the costs of infrastructure maintenance. To this point, by allowing for precise infrastructure automation, these once laborious repetitive tasks can now be streamlined, removing maintenance overhead and allowing for cloud infrastructure administrators to apply their resources towards other more pressing tasks.
