Its capability to manage not just Cloud platform but other aspects of Infra team like DBA, Storage, Security, and tools like Kubernetes, VCS, and list is never ending. I majorly use it for GCP/Oracle/Rancher/MySQL/AWS/Azure/Kubernetes/GitLab to name few.

Cloud agnostic approach (you can't reuse most of the code - resources are provider-specific, but you can use Terraform for interactions with various clouds), automation, modules re-usability, infrastructure as a code approach.

The state backend, automated describe functionality, modular structures, and variablization using templates are most valuable.

The most valuable feature is the support for different platforms like cloud, datacenters, VCS, databases, various storage types, and Kubernetes.

One of the most valuable features is that it offers the ability to create a VPC, Virtual Private Cloud and VPN connectivity to the VPC can be automated without having to do it manually.

Hello community, I work as a DevOps Engineer at a Tech Services Company. Currently, I'm comparing Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform with HashiCorp Terraform. Both are Infrastructure as Code (IaC) platforms. Which one would you choose and why? Please specify the pros/cons, if possible. I appreciate the help!
