We are using it for infrastructure as code automation. We are running its latest version.

We are using Terraform to manage our multi-cloud requirement for different demos and test environments. It helps us set up the entire environment in a few mins with the exact configuration in AWS, Azure, or GCP, along with other setups like a database, Kubernetes, etc.

I mainly use it for infrastructure automation. I use it to provision servers in different cloud providers and in-house with the principles to create a Kubernetes cluster. If you have a master node concept I would create the master and find related text. The main function for me is to create infrastructure.

We deliver the platform as a service to businesses. For example, one request for a particular subscription could be in the business domain or non-business domain, whatever it may be, based on the demand, we deliver the customized subscription to them. For each service, we have different constraints. What needs to be delivered in the VNet of Azure, and what needs to be done externally.

We use it to provision cloud infrastructure. We use it to provision all kinds of infrastructure from wherever we want, we Terraform to the cloud. We provision new infrastructure, we update existing infrastructure with it, we manage our DNS records, and also deploy new applications on Kubernetes. That's the main use, but we use it for all of our infrastructures, so it has a lot of different use cases.

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!

It should have a more object-oriented approach like different coding languages.

I personally say it's already simplified. I don't see many areas for improvement because Terraform employs a lot of skilled engineers that put their time and energy into providing a fantastic enterprise-level tool like this. There is not much more to simplify. There are already quite notable features in Terraform and we've already been provided with updates and other features. In short, there are many things which are already in place, so I don't think that we need anything more from Terraform.
