With Terraform you can write declarative configuration files, view execution plans, and apply plans to realize the infrastructure declared in the configuration files. An important advantage of Terraform is that is supports over 100 resource providers including the major public and private cloud providers, such as Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform, VMWare vSphere, OpenStack, and CloudStack. This course teaches you everything you need to understand about Terraform, the problems it can solve, and to how to solve your infrastructure challenges with Terraform. Upon completing the course, you will be able to manage infrastructure across multiple clouds using a single workflow and a single tool, Terraform.
