» Backend Types
This section documents the various backend types supported by Terraform. If you're not familiar with backends, please read the sections about backends first.
Backends may support differing levels of features in Terraform. We differentiate these by calling a backend either standard or enhanced. All backends must implement standard functionality. These are defined below:
Standard: State management, functionality covered in State Storage & Locking
Enhanced: Everything in standard plus remote operations.
The backends are separated in the left by standard and enhanced.
