Automating Cloud Networks with Terraform

Terraform is an open-source infrastructure as code (IaC) tool developed by HashiCorp. It enables you to define and manage your cloud infrastructure resources as code in a declarative way. Terraform is perfect for:

  • Infrastructure as Code
  • Version control of your infrastructure
  • CI/CD integration
  • Multi-Cloud
  • Keeping resource configurations consistent

By the end of this course, you will be able to set initialize, configure and maintain a cloud-based network architecture using Terraform. During this course we will start from the very beginning with an introduction to Terraform and gradually build a complete infrastructure in AWS using Terraform and look at different ways to work with Terraform in a scalable way!

In this course, we will cover:
