A common pattern for managing large-scale Terraform infrastructure involves splitting up monolithic architecture into "Terraservices". Terraservices are logical, independently-managed components that help to isolate cloud resources and reduce the blast radius of changes that are made throughout development.
Infrastructure components like a Virtual Private Cloud network rarely change once they're deployed, while GCE instances tend to require frequent updates. With this modular approach to managing resources, you can update or switch between instance configurations without the risk of affecting critical network settings.
Infrastructure developers lean on Terragrunt to manage the relationships and communication between these separate resource modules.
In this lab, you will learn how to use Terragrunt to pass data between two separately managed Terraform modules.
Upon completion of this lab, you will be able to:
